Cat Fashion at the Los Angeles Feline Film Festival

Lindsay and Sabrina

It’s 10 pm on Sunday evening. Three hours past Friskies o’clock. Marcy stares at the front door, glowering and whipping her tail back and forth.

At 10:05 pm Cynthia bursts through the door with a bagful of cat loot and an iPhone full of pictures.

Cynthia (hysterically):  Marcy! The Los Angeles Feline Film Festival was even more awesome than expected!

Marcy:  Oh yeah.

Cynthia:  Yeah! It was… epic! Just…epic!

Cynthia hurriedly fumbles for her phone while talking a mile a minute.

Cynthia:  OMG. You should have seen all of the cat outfits. I was going to do a proper post first about the festival but I can’t wait. Let’s look at all the cute cat attire right now.

Cynthia drops her phone.

Cynthia:  Oops.

Marcy:  How about you get a grip. How about you feed me first.

Cynthia:  Here – snack on this. Cynthia throws Marcy a treat packet. Natural Balance was there handing out yummy cat food samples.

Cynthia retrieves her phone and enthusiastically shoves it in Marcy’s face.

Cynthia:  Check out. These. Awesome Cat Outfits!

Cynthia:  Everyone was so cute. And so friendly. And so … happy.  Maybe instead of giving people Prozac, doctors should prescribe Puddy Cats!

Marcy rushes to hide under the couch.

Cynthia:  What’s wrong?

Marcy:  Those are the scariest pictures I’ve ever seen.

Cynthia:  Really? Why?

Marcy:  I thought you were alone in your insanity.

Cynthia:  Nope, Marcy. There are thousands and thousands and thousands of us crazy cat people out there. I think we are going to make the world a happier place. One cat at a time.

Marcy:  And armed in cat ears?

Cynthia:  Yes!

Marcy:  Oh my gatos.

Keiko Lynn In Cat Tights In Paris

keiko lynn: Le Chat Noir

Marcy is hard at work on the computer. Cynthia enters.

Cynthia:  Watcha doing, Marcy Cat Cat Cat?

Marcy:  Blogging.

Cynthia (startled):  Oh. About what?

Marcy:  The fabulous Keiko Lynn of … Keiko Lynn posted a pic of herself in those cat tights you’ve been slobbering over for a year. 

Cynthia:  Ohhhhhh… how beautiful! That pic was taken in Paris.

Marcy:  I know.

Marcy glares at Cynthia while swishing her tail ominously back and forth.

Cynthia:  Okaaaaay…

Marcy goes back to editing her post. Cynthia thinks for a moment.

Cynthia:  You know, Marcy, just because we aren’t bloggers that jet set to Paris and take fabulous photos in cat tights doesn’t mean that what we have to say is diminished.

Marcy:  Really?

Cynthia:  Yeah. We’re on a different path at a different pace. And this (almost) year we’ve been blogging has been absolutely amazing and life changing! We’ve met so many wonderful people! We’ve had so much fun!

Marcy:  Yeah…

Cynthia:  So that pic above is just fantastic inspiration of what one can do with creativity, passion, hard work, and business savvy. And that, from a girl who grew up in my hometown! We’ll get to Paris, Marcy!

Marcy:  Yay!

Cynthia:  So – what did you do with the post I wrote today?

Marcy:  I deleted it.

Cynthia:  Why?

Marcy:  It was stupid.

Long pause.

Cynthia:  Okay. So. I guess we’ll go with your post about Keiko Lynn’s cat tights.

Marcy:  Well, yeah. You can’t go wrong with a photo of a cute girl in cat tights in Paris.

*Woo Hoo! Cat tights are available at ModCloth! Where else, right?!*

Throwback Thursday: Cat Fashion From 100 Years Ago

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

Cat Stockings from 1914


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!

New in Cat Clothing for Humans

Cynthia:  Marcy, look at these cool cat tights! Should I get a pair?

Marcy:  Are you 12?

Cynthia:  Um… no.

Marcy:  Are you a Harajuku girl?

Cynthia:  Noooo…we don’t live in Japan.

Marcy:  Is it Halloween? Is it April Fool’s Day?

Cynthia:  It’s June.

Marcy:  Do you have legs like that? Or do you have knee wrinkles, purple veins, and wobbly thighs?

Cynthia:  Okay, you’re being mean.

Marcy:  No. I am saving you from yourself.
