Kenggy's Bootee

An ex-colleague gave EJ a soft toy.

What EJ saw was not a soft toy but bootees for Kenggy. And EJ was promptly given a second similar soft toy when the idea was made known as Kenggy do not have two front paws.

EJ got down to work, cutting the boot off and trimming it a bit.

Notice the underside of the boot has non-slip rubber studs. The soft toy including the boots are filled with synthetic wool which serves as a perfect cushion for Kenggy to walk on.

Cute and a perfect fit!


After a few seconds of wearing, Kenggy started flinging her forelimb rapidly like desperately shaking water off. Needlessly to say, that bootee, being booted with such force, was flung to a rather far distance.

Not giving up easily, EJ tried a few times but could not convince the adamant Kenggy in accepting to wearing it.

So now these toys and the cut-out boot sit on the shelf as a symbol of an ex-colleague's friendship as well as non-acceptance of EJ's brilliant plans to shoe Kenggy!

Kenggy prefers and happily moves around as nature meant her to be.

Well, EJ had good intentions, actually, creative intentions too. Those little toys are so cute. I guess Kenggy would rather the boots sit on the shelf instead of her. It was still a good idea! She sure is a pretty girl. :)

We'd rather be bootie-free, as nature intended, too! :-)

Julie said...

It was a very clever idea! Happy COT. :)

It was a real great idea, but apparently Kenggy thinks it's not necessary, it looked so cute ! But the most important is that she can walk, with or without shoes !

Mary said...

How funny! I'm with Kenggy...I hate shoes, too :-)

Marg said...

We sure wouldn't wear any shoes. We would do the same thing that you did, just toss those babies. But it was a cute idea. Have a great day.

Great idea but cats just do not like shoes or booties, lol. It's kind of like watching them walk in snow when they're not used to it. Step step, shake shake, step step, shake shake.

Beautiful toys.

Andree said...

You have a priceless friend in EJ. Truly a gift to have someone that generous in your life. Sometimes we just need to accept what our kitties tell us they want to do. Kenggy is stunning.

meowmeowmans said...

Amin said...

What a kind thing to do for a kitty,
I am sorry it did not work out!
We ♥ Kenggy, the brave kitty! :)

It was a nice thought that EJ had.
Kenggy had different ideas. It is wonderful that she can walk even though she doesn't have her front paws. I think she is just beautiful.

lupie said...

Kenggy looks so adorable with the little boot! :)

But, cats being the 'higher kind' will not adhere to what we silly humans have in mind! :)

Hugs to Kenggy - she is lucky to have you (she will be thinking it is the other way around - cats, again, being the 'higher kind')

Beautiful cat.

Amin said...

Interesting story.

Ballicai said...

*grin*, very cute. Momma jokes around about making booties for us Ballicai, but we probably wouldn't wear them. :)

Puss-in-Boots said...

I'd hate to try and get something like that on my cats' feet. They would not be impressed...

Amin said...

I had never tried!

Ashkarya said...

Well, you tried, but I think Kenggy knows better :-)
