Moccasin Monday!


May Ling here.

Wanna know a secret about my Daddy?  Of course you do!

He has FLAT feet.
Like tortillas.
His podeya...prodera...pordiaris...foot doctor said they were the flattest set of gunboats he's ever seen!  Mommy says he needs some Ancient Romans to build him arches.

So, Daddy has problems finding shoes that are comfortable.  In fact, most of the time he just wears socks.  Which drives Mommy insane because he wears 'em outside, too--like when he waters the garden and stuff.  His socks are a disaster when they hit the laundry basket!  She's been threatening to buy him slippers for years, and Daddy has always categorically rebelled against any type of casual footwear.

Until now.
This year, for a variety of reasons, Daddy capitulated during the annual Slipper Conversation,* and chose a pair of moccasins made out of BISON, of all things.  We were all shocked and amazed that when they arrived, not only did Daddy like them, he likes wearing them!

It's been a couple of weeks now, and they are getting suitably stinky.

Nothing quite matches the experience of inhaling  the delicate, yet heady, aromatic blend of eau de Daddy and Bison bison.

Kitties, for your information:  I inhale. 

Oh, yeah.

Happy Monday!

  1. To each kitty her own: I take fresh new yoga straps over stinky slippers any day.

  2. Oh! Oh! Oh!
    MY Daddy's slippers smell like Valerian!!!
    Mes LOVES them!

  3. We're more into the bottom of the shoe. You should smell the ones that Mommy wears into the chicken coop - YUMMY!

  4. Does your Daddy sweat catnip perchance ?

    Mirsku is very jealous, He is off to research bison behaviour and odours in an attempt to make himeslf even more appealing to you, May Ling!

  5. I'd bet The Shepherd would like those slippers!

    Me - I love my Crocs - Just the plain old ones - comfy... T.

  6. I hate shoes. I own many pairs of Minnetonka Moccasins... mine are Mooseskin. And I also have Minnetonka slippers.

    I also have many, many pairs of Kino sandals (which are my preferred footwear most of the time) and a few pairs of Keds sneakers for when it's cold and can't wear sandals and ONE pair of sneakers for the gym---out of absolute necessity---which are only on my feet for the obligatory allotted time and off they come.

    So... Me and Scott are sympatico when it somes to shoes!

  7. That look on May Ling's face after sniffing made our human laugh! Purrs!

  8. Oooooooooooooooo!!
    Look at the effect of those slippers :o
    That Daddy/bison mix must be really good ;)
    Purrs Tillie and Georgia,
    Treasure,Tiger, JJ and Julie

  9. It sure looks like eau de Daddy and bison bison is an irresistible combination. I guess this is why our peeps keep the shoes hidden in the closet, isn't it?

  10. Gorgeous May Ling! We think you have fallen in love! LOL!! Take care

  11. Good Grief, May Ling! You DO Like those bison slippers, don't you? We have never explored shoes. Maybe we should try?

    The Chans

  12. ha ha - you are so cute. Now I'd be going ewwwwwwwww!

  13. Nothing better than the smell of Dad and bison to make a kitty sleepy
    Hugs Madi your bfff

  14. we guess that is better than dirty socks. :)

  15. We think you'd better get a few more pairs of those moccasins for your daddy to wear. We wouldn't want any kitty battles over his stinky shoes!

  16. Charlie loves my stinky moccasins also....

  17. Wow I never heard of shoes made of bison! Glad your dad found the shoes he likes....and obviously you like it, too!! Eau de Daddy & Bison bison must smell reall good. LOL!

  18. May Ling, you are so funny! Thanks for the smile.

  19. That is as good as window whiffs!

  20. May Ling, you are sure enjoying those shoes, girl.

  21. OMC May Ling! This post made us giggle!

  22. MayLing, I wonder if those taste as good as they smell. I'd like to give them a nibble.


  23. May Ling, you look like you are in seventh heaven inhaling your daddy's bison slippers.

  24. Little Reading Room! HA!!!!
    You know what you have to do several more pairs as back up when this pair wears out. Mom always says when you find something you really like stock up 'cause they prolly won't be there again if you don't!

  25. mol! shtinky shoe bliss :D we bet those slippers would be nice to chew least Pip does...

    Pip, Smidgen, Minnie, HOllie

  26. May Ling, Are you sure you like eau de daddy. We think it is more likely the Bison Bison. Don't start chewing those things. Your mommy may never convince him to get another pair. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Josette

  27. Nothing like a good smelly shoe. Just don't pee in that shoe. Daddy probably wouldn't like it.

    We used to have a cat who enjoyed sniffing on my daughters work shoes. (she works in a restaurant) After months of sniffing he then used that shoe as his toilet!

  28. May Ling you looks like you is in heaven!

    Sasha lubs shoes too, but we gots no bison slippers here. We bets they taste good too, MOL

    Sasha, Sami, & Saku

  29. eeewwww!!!...seriously May can't pawsibbly find that "odor" ummm...satisfying??? What am I missing???...*snicker*

  30. My cats do that on the shoes of visitors we have! It's so gross.

    Tell Daddeh that I have flat feet too. Only the cool people have flat feet!

  31. Uh, You better not let Daddy watch Dances with Wolves, ha ha ha ha ha!

  32. We can't say we've ever tried.

    The Paw Relations

  33. Bison are in short supply over here. Might try pig loafers!

  34. Me too like to whiff in smelly shoe´s , May Ling :)

  35. I guess we all have little quirks. Haha!
