Kate Beckinsale is well known for her kitty-themed Instagram pics, but the British star's latest post of a rather grumpy looking Christmas cat is the best one yet!
By, 24 Dec 2019
The avid cat lover shared the hilarious post last Thursday. It shows Clive the cat sitting under the Christmas tree in a full Santa Claus costume.
A new grumpy cat?
But it's the look on Clive's face that had everyone in stitches. It's fair to say that he looks less than impressed with his festive get-up!
Have we finally found a worthy replacement for the late, great Grumpy Cat?
Looking through Kate's Instagram page, you'd think Clive would be used to dressing up by now! Previous pics show Clive dressed as a gipsy princess and even a lobster!
Kate is a self-confessed cat person. When asked about her love for kitties, she said:
"I'm very much a cat person. Cats are easier than dogs. You don't have to walk around with a bag of poo like you do with a dog...I hate to walk around with a bag of poo."
But despite Clive's gruff exterior, Kate assured fans that he's a very happy cat and that he doesn't really mind the costumes!
When he isn't playing dress-up for his cat mum, Clive loves finding comfy little snugs to explore. Kate said:
"Clive's favourite things in the world are suitcases and boxes and bags, if you bring home a pair of sneakers or take out bag, he's immediately inside it."
Clive has a cat sister named Willow and Pomeranian dog brother, although you'll never catch them in a Santa costume.
Cats in costumes
So remember, as hilarious as they are, cat costumes are only suitable for some pets.
Never force your cat into a costume. If they seem uncomfortable or put up any kind of struggle, then put the costumes back in the box.
