European Cat Girl: Melisa Minca of MeowNEKI NEKO


Cynthia: I was scrolling through Effortless Anthropologie‘s Blogroll and noticed that a few European blogs had been added to the list. I clicked around, quite enthralled at the beautiful moodiness of most of the fashion photography, and by chance found Melisa Minca of MeowNEKI NEKO.

Cynthia:  Melisa Minca is a fashion blogger and photography student from Bratislava studying in Edinburgh. I am not sure why she named her blog after the English word for the sound a cat makes with the actual Japanese word for cat since most of her photos are of fashion and not cats. However –

Marcy:  Would you get to the point already!

Cynthia:  My point is that I find these two cat inspired photographs of Melisa Minca to be intriguing and beautiful.

Marcy:  I heart them too.

Marcy:  See Cindy, us European women are intriguing because we feel beautiful in our own skin. Unlike you American women, we are not obsessed with having perfect hair, a wrinkle free face, big sexy boobs, and big poofy lips.

Cynthia (insulted):  Hey! We’re not all like that! And anyway Marcy, you’re from Texas, not Europe.


Cynthia:  Yeah. Paris, Texas!

Marcy’s claws start to extend, her tail puffs up, and her ears point back.

Marcy:  See Cindy, us European women…

One hour later.

Marcy continues to lecture Cynthia about why European women are so cool. In retaliation, Cynthia puts on an herbal face mask, some teeth whitening strips, deodorant, and with a big smile says “Have A Nice Day” over and over and over.

Check back tomorrow to see who wins this really stupid and not very intriguing cat fight.

    I have to agree with Marcy. European women are more subtle and original in their style. You can usually pick out the American women in the streets of Europe …we look shiny and contrived, like we put too much effort into it.

      That is so interesting!! I really was amazed at how the European bloggers felt so … well… European. You could not use the words cute or quirky when describing them. I also noticed that they don't use as many accessories as the American fashion bloggers. Very interesting. Thank you so much for stopping by and commenting!

    I love those pictures. Oh no! No cute or quirky? I could never be a European fashion blogger. They are so chic!

    I was driving home with the kids yesterday, when a beautiful little black cat darted out across the road in front of us. She jumped into some bushes and ran up a slope. She had two collars. One with diamonds and the other was pink with a tag. I had never seen an outdoor cat with such a fancy collar.

    The kids hadn't either. We were sure she was lost. So, I parked my car and ran across the street to get her. She came to me and I scooped her up and ran with her to my car. In my car, I was able to read her tag. I callee the number and a woman answered. She lived down the street. Apparently "Fiji" is an outdoor cat. I pulled up with her. The poor old lady thought I was nuts. I gave her her cat and drove away. But now I know! Cats with collars are outdoor cats, too. ; )

    Marcy would have been so mortified.

      Oh Jenni!!!!

      You are a hero!!!! Seriously. That woman should not have looked at you like you were nuts. Because really, chances are a cat like that IS lost. Please please please don't hesitate to do that again. It kind of makes me nervous that this black cat is so friendly. And, darting in front of cars. Ugh. That's dangerous for her on two counts. Ah well… Thank you for stopping and investigating! What a story. You are wonderful!!!!

      i'm not mortified, jenni! i think you are the cat's meow =^-^=
