Remember the other day when Binga was wearing butterfly wings in a vain attempt to catch bugs? Those wings have been sitting around for a very long time… since 2011, in fact! And you know who wore them first?
Sparkle! The butterfly getup was one of several outfits my human got for her, Binga, and even Boodie that year. If you want to see the original blog post, it’s here.
Halloween was not a holiday Sparkle looked forward to. She was not really one for costumes. She was also too small for this outfit, as you can see. My human had a hard time keeping it on her. It kept slipping around. To give you an idea of how small she was, the wings even fit me, although I don’t have a photo of me wearing them.
The dog that lived here is gone now too — she was only here for less than a year after my human brought me home. I think the dog felt bad for Sparkle having to wear that costume.
And Sparkle really did hate that costume — she let my human know that in no uncertain terms! I don’t know what happened to the antenna part of the outfit. I think moths ate the feathery parts and it got thrown out.
