'Do I come out of the Closet?'
Dear Dr. Basil
I don’t know if mew can help me, as this is something very purrsonal and private, but I don’t know who else to turn to… *SIGH*
I have this huge whopping monstrous secret that I’ve been keeping from my furrmily for quite some time.  The reason that I’m writing to mew is that they are now becoming suspicious of my activities and are asking questions every time I pop out of the cat flap and to be honest I’m running out of excuses.
Mew see my enormous secret is that on the quiet I’m a memfur and the lead in a Troupe of Morris Dancing Cats!  This is the headline:-  
~ Morris & Co with their Blinging Ringing Bells ~
Come and experience the Marvellous Morris & Co in a Bellinging Extravaganza of Bells, Bopping and Merrymaking.
Be Enchanted and Bewitched by Bells!
Plus the fact that we are now getting quite furrmous is also piling the purressure on.
The utter humiliation of telling my furrmily that a big burley ginger Tomcat like myself dances with many bells on my fluffy tail is killing me, so my question to mew, Dr. Basil is:
Do I come out of the Closet and come clean, revealing my secret passion of dancing with many bells strapped to my purrson?
Yours most secretively and immensely despurrate
Morris the Dancing Cat
(Address withheld)

This is my Expert Reply 
Notice how I use the colour purple to raise the conscious mind into making the right choice, thereby releasing any angst or latent fear.

Dear Morris
Bells, you like dancing with bells?  And whistles too? No, ok fine.  I see your point Morris, mew don’t want to be seen as anything other than the persona mew have created in your home environment ~ Mr Big Burley Strong Tomcat ~ and mew don’t want to been seen as ~ Little Miss Girly Kitteh Dancer with Bells ~ Mew are living a secret double life, this isn’t good for your mental well-being and making excuses when trying to hide your activities will only add to your purroblems.
My advice to mew today is from The School of Tough Love – T.S.O.T.L. – Mew need be proud of your achievements whatever they maybe, don’t concern yourself with what others think of mew. There are always going to be those in the world that don’t understand mew, but if mew spend your life in fear what others think, mew are robbing yourself of the chance to be happy and mew are actually cheating yourself out of exciting future experiences brought on by an unreal fear of how mew think others will judge mew.
Remember, that if its not hurting anyone and mew don’t have a purroblem with it, its ok.  What anyone else thinks is null and void and completely irrelevant, if mew are happy - do it, if mew aren’t - stop.  Its as simple that.
Others’ issues are not your purroblem, it’s fur them to deal with, as they obviously have deep seated concerns themselves that they need to address and deal with*
(However, if mew are feeling any sort of anxiety I recommend that mew have a good healthy dose of catnip before, mew won’t care two purrs after a good hit of the really strong stuff.)
So stand up tall, open that closet door wide, get your freak on and show the world what mew can do ~ Shake that furry body, jingle those bells and be proud of who mew are Morris! Rock on dude and more power to mew!
However, if mew really can’t face the reality of revealing yourself in the immediate future, my other suggestion is mew wear masquerade mask, thereby hiding your true identity from the world – nevertheless mew must be aware that this is only a tempory fix – like a small band aid - and not a valid solution to your long term dilemma, mew will still be in the same situation mew are now, but only worse.
(*If your family have any issues with mew getting your freak on with bells, I suggest mew bring them along to The Saturday Solution Clinic for some open furrmily counselling sessions with my esteemed colleague: Dr. K.B. Dundee who will be more than happy to assist.)
Morris, I do hope that The Saturday Solution has helped mew, and if mew need any further consultations, purrlease don't hesitate to MEOW me!
Yours most sincerely
Dr. Basil
@ The Saturday Solution Clinic T.M.

Todays Moral Code is:

If mew can relate to this purroblem or feel that mew are in need of any assistance, purrlease leave a comment to: Dear Dr. Basil.... or email me directly and I'll get back to mew.

Thank mew all for joining me today on The Saturday Solution with Dr Basil, and if you've missed this session don't forget that I'll be back next week with another open clinic and case study.

Until then, Keep Calm and Purr
