‘Way!’ Yelina grinned, holding up the little super-suit. ‘C’mere, Boomers.’
Boom-Boomed Kitty eyed the thing in his mistress’ hands, dubiously. When she was in this mood, it was hard to tell what she was up to. Often it involved peculiar, often vexing behaviour.
When she got him in her lap and made clear her intent, he began struggling to get away. He was not about to wear silly human clothes again! Didn’t his mistress realise that, unlike her, he wasn’t born into this world naked?
‘Hold still, Boomers!’
He sighed, relaxed, and steeled himself to endure this ordeal.

Boom-Boom Kitty looked up at his mistress pleadingly, but said nothing.
‘It’s okay, Boomers,’ Yelina said reassuringly, seeing his look. ‘This won’t hurt a bit.’
Boom-Boom Kitty thought about struggling one last time as his head was covered up, but he sighed and allowed his mistress to inflict this last indignity.
