Christmas jumper etiquette.

How many of you have been unlucky enough to receive a Christmas jumper as a present?

Last year I received one. To put it politely it’s not my favourite accessory. The problem is it’s often difficult to pull off the right ‘thank you what a great present’ face without looking like you’re saying ‘OK I’m wearing your silly jumper where are the treats?’ face.


You then have to pose for the obligatory embarrassing Christmas jumper photo…


Then, depending on how much you you need to remain on good terms with your Christmas jumper giving furiend, you need to wear your scratchy jumper for an ‘I’m grateful’ amount of time. If, like me, it’s your humans/parents/loved ones who’ve gifted the ‘present‘ I suggest 5 minutes is a reasonable period to suffer. Then you need to subtly find a private place where you can rip off the offending piece of clothing and revert to your normal respectable life.



I hope this helps!

  3. you had me at unlucky enough to receive a Christmas jumper. Poor little fellow – with your silky fur you should never ever wear something!


  4. Bailey, you are a gentleman to put up with it for a minute but hey, you look fabulous in your jumper 😀

    Sweet Bailey I know exactly what mew mean by being given jumpers, and the scary thing is the one who keeps gifting me them is my human Mom! She keeps trying and hoping I will wear one and actually move around when I am humiliatingly forced to put one on. Well, she can keep waiting and hoping and buying, but I will continue to protest by refusing to move! It is a great tactic that I highly recommend- it isn’t guaranteed to stop them from trying but their frustration will cease the issue for a long period of time. MEWHAHAHA…humans: stupid is the hopelessly determined one!


  6. MOL!! Bless your poor, handsome heart, Bailey! Don’t these humans have anything better to do than harass us Pawsome felines?

    Well, maybe this will help you overcome the shame… I love you and your blog so much that I have nominated you for the FRIENDS & FOLLOWERS AWARD! For more information, check out this link:



  7. Fortunately no jumpers have made an appearance here – I am keeping my paws crossed it stays that way!


  8. Oh dear Bailey. If you’ve not seen the movie THE CHRISTMAS STORY, there is a scene toward the end where a boy receives a “smashing” outfit as a gift and his mother makes him wear it for a while. You are not alone!


  9. They can be handy when, with a fur attuned to the tropics, you suddenly travel to freezeland. In which case, you drag it to the nearest human and make demanding noises. Pickle the Devon Rex had that to a fine art.


  10. Lol, did you poop in the floor to retaliate?


  11. Bailey great jumper..only solution…move down one gets a jumper for Christmas because it’s summer 😉 ..but bad t-shirts can be problematic :0 hugs Fozziemum xx


  12. Oh dear! The hooman has threatened to put us in jumpers but no sign of them yet thank goodness! ^_^

  13. You do look cute in it though


  14. I love the ‘if all else fails hide your head in a bag’ final picture!


  15. nooo moggies do not wear xmas jumpers lol


  16. So far I’ve been fortunate enough to avoid the dreaded ugly Christmas sweaters, but I’ll keep your advice in mind.


  17. LOL, MOL! Mommy keeps threatening to get us sweaters (jumpers is a much cooler word) so we can spend more time on the ratio when the weather is cold. She just hasn’t done it yet. Phew! Hope she never does! We do think you look darn adorable, but we understand where burying your head in the PTU made you feel better. Meowy Catmess…MOL, HO, HO,HO!
