A fairly common way for (sort of) animal cartoon characters to be dressed is for them to have human clothes above the waist and nothing below it. Look for pictures of Donald Duck (and Scrooge, Huey, Dewey, and Louie), Porky Pig, Winnie the Pooh, Yogi Bear (well, he only wears a tie), Top Cat, etc. The rule seemed to be to give them a little bit of clothes to signal that they were intelligent creatures, but it didn't matter what else they wore.
