Cynthia: This is what I wore last Wednesday to celebrate National Feral Cat Day. Cat ears and an Anthropologie Corey Lynn Calter skirt.
Marcy: Wait. You celebrated? I thought you were supposed to cry. I mean, that’s what you usually do.
Cynthia (ignoring her): It occurred to me that I frequently wear Anthropologie clothes when I am out doing cat rescue. So I thought I’d share.
Marcy (alarmed): Oh no! Are you going to post another hundred photos of yourself?
Cynthia: Umm…let’s see…1..2…3…4… Nope. Only four. You know, Marcy, many of our readers are Anthropologie lovers and they may appreciate this.
Marcy: Fine. It’s Anthropologie in action.
Cynthia: Here I am wearing Anthropologie’s Charleston Henley Blouse when I was accepting a grant on behalf of The Kris Kelly Foundation from the Pacific Palisades Women’s Club. This photo is from The Palisades Post.
Cynthia: Here I am wearing an Anthropologie Deletta tee when I was helping out a family in Cerritos.
Those are kitties in the car. I had humanely trapped them the night before and in this picture they had just been spayed/neutered by FixNation. After recuperating for another night, I released them to their original location – the family’s backyard. And that is where they happily live today. The process is called TNR (Trap/Neuter/Return) and it is the most effective and humane way to reduce the feral cat population.
Cynthia: Here I am wearing Anthropologie’s Elkanah Jacket. That kitty and 8 others were living behind a motel in Los Angeles. We humanely trapped all nine. Five kittens we adopted to great homes and four adults had to be returned since they were semi-feral. They have an excellent person feeding them and are doing great.
Cynthia: And here I am at the opening of PetSmart in Los Angeles wearing the Abbreviated Blazer and the Loosened Shelby top. The Kris Kelly Foundation shows their adoptable cats and dogs here. PetSmart Charities donates space in their stores, as well as money for spay/neuter programs to 501c3 rescue groups.
Cynthia: The blonde in the white shirt is the beautiful Kris from The Kris Kelly Foundation. I learned how to do TNR through her rescue.
Marcy: Oh I love her!
Cynthia: Me too!
Marcy: You know, Cindy, just because you wear Anthropologie doesn’t mean that you haven’t already fallen into the abyss of Crazy Cat Ladydom. You’ve been bonkers for a while now.
Cynthia: I know, but I love you sooo much!
Cynthia spontaneously scoops up Marcy and gives her some smooches.
Marcy: Oh geez. Here we go again.
Cynthia, you look so adorable in your Anthro outfits.
Marci, you also look adorable. Have you gained a little weight? It looks good on you.
From Cynthia: Thank you, Anonymous!
From Marcy: Thank you, Anonymous! Sadly, no. I have not gained any weight. I am just puffy in this particular picture. Cindy is limiting my Friskies intake and quite frankly, I am wasting away. Please talk to her for me.
You do such good work – from a fellow animal love, thank you!
Awww… thank you, Lisa! Love that you are an animal lover too!
Cynthia is the cat whisperer and does it with style!
Oh Kris, you win! I know I am not always the most pleasant when we are out there and you are snapping away with the camera. In fact, I am quite embarrassed that I can get so snarly about it. But, looking back, I am very happy to have them. Thank you!
Oh! I love this! You are an amazing human being, Cynthia! I love that you have found your passion. And look at all of the good that you do. You are beautiful inside and out. I love your cat ears. Your outfits are fantastic! Tell Marcy I liked them a lot!
And tell her her fur is a gorgeous pattern!
From Cynthia: Thank you, Jenni! Marcy is still mad at me for not letting her go live at your house.
From Marcy: Thank you Jenni! I think you are pretty gorgeous too! Us blondes need to stick together. So when can I come over?
I think doing a montage of pictures dressed in Anthropologie for different events was a great idea! I also love the cat ears with the Corey Lynn Calter skirt outfit you put together. By the way, where did you find the cat ears? It's hard to find good cat ears.
Thank you!! It was so bizarre – I was looking at my rescue pics and realized I had been wearing Anthro a lot. Wish I would have been more careful about getting better photos but I am usually quite irritated with my friend who takes them when I am trying to do rescue stuff. Now I'll be nicer. lol
I got the ears at a dance shop called Shelley's here in West Los Angeles. They came with a cat tail. I bet you could find them at a costume shop or a pop up Halloween store.
