Cynthia: Marcy, can you believe this? These cat stockings are from 1914. That is almost 100 years ago. I mean … WOW!

Marcy (yawning): 100 years ago… 10 years ago… It’s all the same to me. I wasn’t around.
Cynthia: Well, I wasn’t around either.
Marcy: Are you sure?
Marcy swishes her tail smugly.
Cynthia: Age jokes are beneath you, Marcy. Don’t go there.
Marcy: Whatever. So what’s the big deal?
Cynthia (excitedly): The big deal is that there were cats on tights 100 years ago! That is incredible! That is bewildering. That is mind boggling.
Marcy: Whatever. Your mind is always boggled.
Cynthia: I mean… here we are… almost 100 years later… and we still want to put cats on tights.

Marcy: Why are you always so obsessed with cat tights? This is like our 3rd post on them.
Cynthia (marveling): Just the fact that there were cat lovers 100 years ago who put cats on their clothes… I don’t know… it makes me feel like I am not so crazy after all. (suddenly) Maybe I could get a pair…
Marcy (horrified): No. Just. No. I stick to my point from four months ago:
If you are not a Harajuku Girl
If you are not 12
If it is not Halloween
You simply CANNOT wear them. I put my paw down, Cindy.
I. Put. My. Paw. Down.
Marcy puts her paw down.
Cynthia: Fine. Whatever. Meanie. (pause) You know, it’s almost time for Halloween. Why don’t I just –
Marcy (yelling pleadingly): No!
Cindy, ignore Marci the brat cat and get your cat tights on. Just for spite, pair it with a poodle skirt.
Hmmm… I do believe that you and Marcy are in cahoots and you are both making fun of me! Hmmm… I will have to investigate this further. LOL
Ooh, those thigh-high looking cat tights are awesome. I dig them!
Lisa! I cannot recall where these were sold but there is a more subtle pair – although not as striking – on the ASOS website.
Oh! Those vintage tights were gorgeous. I love the sheen of the fabric. So pretty. I prefer the look of the tights 100 years ago. They are more subtle and chic. If you can find some like that, you should get them. Marcy will never know. ; )
Hi Jenni! I did find a more subtle pair on ASOS. It really just blows my mind that there were cats on tights a hundred years ago. Marcy is growing out her claws in anticipation of me bringing a pair home. 🙂
