Back when Tabs was the ruling force in the neighborhood, all of the felines knew that once fall arrived, it was time to turn up their fashion game. Inevitably, hats, jewelry, various accessories and the occasional tuxedo would all show up amongst the gang of felines parading around the circle.
Tabs’s most audacious outfit happened during the fall of 2011 when he showed up for a walk wearing a vegan leather moto getup from head to tail. Yes, they still talk about that around these parts…
One day a couple years ago, in a fit of heartbreak, I donated most of his fall couture to the Smithsonian, but sometimes I wish I could hug one of his old feather boas…
While a little said, I’m comforted by the fact that his legacy will live on through fashion posterity.
Trust me, I tried to get Rosie-Pose to dress up today, but no matter how much I explained that this was the thing to do amongst the cats of the neighborhood, she absolutely refused. She looked up at me and went “MROW!” which, according to Google Translate, meant “NO THANK YOU! I dance to the beat of my own drum!”
So it was a simple collar and her favorite leash today.
Instead of parading around with the other local cats (I could have sworn I saw Harris sneaking around with a red bow tie.), she and Connor Claire spent their morning checking the perimeter for paranormal activity.
Rosie recently watched a documentary about ghost hunting, and is now fixated on proving the existence of paranormal cat activity. 👻🐈⬛
