    *shuffles slowly towards the exit hoping nobody notices kittens stuffed in boots*

      Puss in boots?
      Sorry. Couldn’t resist.

    This would totally be me if I worked somewhere with pocket-sized anipals! How could you resist?😍

    And now I know why it’s called a happy coat (google Marimekko iloinen takki [=happy coat], I’m terrible at linking). I’d fill ALL the pockets with cute kittens!

        Thank you!

        I bet there’s a few Sugar Gliders in those pockets.

    My very first job out of high school was in a pet store (many centuries ago, when they were popular). We wore aprons that went around the neck and tied in back. I always brought the strings back around to the front and tied them there, thus making a pouch. I ALWAYS had something furry tucked in there. And yes, I usually (and honestly) forgot it was there. I’d go to eat my lunch, and a small fluffy head would pop up, rather curious about the interesting smells.

      Awww. Ever go to take the apron off at the end of the day and find a passenger that you forgot?

      • Duckie June 20, 2016 / 4:46 pm

        Yes. And Siamese kitty was QUITE vocal about being awakened. Had to heat up gushy food before I was allowed to leave.
        Next day a family came in and took him home. They’d seen him being carried about the previous day and wanted a feline pocket pet. They came back with him weeks later. He’d grown significantly and couldn’t fit in a pocket anymore, so he occupied shoulders instead. He remembered me and I got a purrub. But it was obvious he ruled the roost, and they had no complaints. They brought him back several times while I was there, and each time they were more and more under his paw.

          That’s a wonderful story. *heart is all warm and gushy*

          A vocally loud and demanding siamese? Who’da thunk it?

    It might be worth getting fired for…

    What could be cuter than a man with pockets full of marmelade.

    Trevor, Get yourself an orange smock/happy coat. Maybe you can slip by loss prevention security that way. Just trying to help.

    Anyone else reminded of the Puppy Coat from “Andy Richter Controls the Universe?”

    • Murray C. June 20, 2016 / 11:42 pm

      What have I missed???😦

    Trevor wisely keeps his head down to foil surveillance cameras but I bet the kitties can be identified using feline-recognition.

  10. Dana June 20, 2016 / 10:55 pm

    I must rush out immediately and get me one of those smocks. Kitties are included, right?

    It kind of looks like the one in the top pocket has spotted a fishy he simply must touch. . . .
