How to Watch the Oscars With Your Cat

First, you must be on the same page about what outfit to wear.

Mr. Ted E. Bear started with his sparkly silver fedora but soon changed his mind after watching the red carpet.


Does this hat make my face look fat?

Upon seeing the glamorous stars, he wanted me to dig out his Christmas tie and decided to prance around our mini-manse until dinner was served. I on the other hand, held firm with my first decision – my leopard print onesie (click here to see me in all of my glory).

You also must have a signature cocktail.  We settled on Kir Royales for the Oscar evening (Teddy was overly cautious (and scared) of the bubbles when trying to drink, therefore I had to polish off the champagne alone – poor me).


First pour two ounces of Chambord in a glass, top with champagne and if you wish, garnish with fruit.

Be sure to have good eats that appeal to the both of you.  I found sushi with tuna, salmon and shrimp – three of Ted’s favorite.


Fancy feline feast.

And sweet treats are also a must – I found a pretty cupcake for Teddy and I to share.

Whiska lickin' good!

Whisker lickin’ good!

We both had the stars we could NOT wait to see. Mine was Bradley Cooper (duh) and Ted’s was, well…Ted.


My bear’s favorite bear.

After all of the excitement, Teddy could hardly keep his eyes open the rest of the telecast.

Does this show ever end?

Be sure to have entertainment to keep your feline awake, as I accidentally fed Teddy too much fish and frosting.

Maybe cat nip for next year’s treat?

    Humm…I have a sneaking suspicion that Teddy may not have been 100% thrilled with his hat. My 21 year old tux cat Jack has a strict no hat rule. I have tried a snappy vest on him but that did not go over too well either.
    Love your choice of cocktail for the evening! 😀

    Ahhh, Bradley Cooper, is it? Maybe he and Ben will do a movie together and we can get tickets to the premier.

    • Yes! I’ve been a fan of BC since his small role on the TV show Alias. (I like to think I knew him when….) Premier tix to a movie both of our crushes are in? DONE and DONE!!

        I almost spit out my tea — you were a fan of “Alias,” too! The title music is now stuck in my head. I loved that show. LOVED it. But I loved Michael Vartan. I had dreams of him driving up in his big, white, Beemer. When he and Jennifer Garner got together in real life, I was so stoked. Then she stole my man. Dang, that was an awesome show. I knew I liked you.

      • Ha! We’re definitely two peas in a TV watching pod! Michael Vartan was who I wanted JG to end up with. I LOVED them together, too!!

  3. Love it and love chambord – did everyone win who you wanted to?

Holla at me!
