Cat’s Cure For Decision Fatigue

Wherever in the world you’re visiting from, I wish you a good morning, a good afternoon or good evening. It’s Mondays With Merlin and you’ve made a good choice by landing here. I can’t say the same for my choices of Halloween costumes. I can’t decide. What do you think I should go as? In the meantime, I’ll soak up the sun puddles. It’s every cat’s cure when they can’t decide.

Research has shown that having too many choices causes something called decision fatigue, making it difficult if not paralyzing to make the best choice according this intriguing article http://www.nytimes.com/2011/08/21/magazine/do-you-suffer-from-decision-fatigue.html?pagewanted=all

  1. Hi Layla,

    Since Merlin is contemplating a pirate costume as one possibility, he might want to go with Captain Jack Sparrow. Then he’d be the coolest cat in the neighborhood provided he’s a true Johnny Depp fan!

    Then again, if he wants to go with something more recent, Iron Man is pretty big right now. Gotta love Robert Downey Jr.

    If he’s into the Gods, then how about going as Thor?

    Hope I didn’t add to his decision fatigue by providing three suggestions!

    Wait, he can always go as his own cool self! Decision fatigue issue solved?

  2. Well our silly Mom doesn’t do Photoshop so we have to put up with little stuff. But it is just as much fun. There is no way we are putting on a costume for real. WE can’t wait to see what you decide Merlin. It should be fun.

  3. Merlin and Sam are sharing the same conundrum regarding Halloween costumes! They’re both already well dressed for what they both enjoy doing – sunning themselves…. 🙂

    1. @Ingrid, we agree. Some cats don’t mind but ours will only tolerate something for a quick photo op.
      @Pam, maybe sun puddles could be a costume.
      @Caren, okay, we think they are creepy too.
      @Milo & Alfie, you have the right idea.
      @Rumpy, dogs can do it too 😉
      @Kitcaboodles, Gris Gris was thinking of Zorro.
      @Angelina Jolie, thanks, he’d make a fine wizard.
