Yes, it’s cat video week on Vegansaurus! Woo!
Julie Klausner attended the Algonquin Hotel Cat Fashion Show, a benefit for NY SAVE, and made this really wonderful video about it. Cat “mew-dels” willingly wearing clothes! To help other, needy, naked cats! Hosted by the Algonquin’s own Matilda, herself a rescued cat.
Man, I love it when animal people take it several steps beyond.
OMG EDWARD IS THAT YOU??!!!!
Nope, it’s Edward Cullen CAT! He (or she!) was one of the many entrants in the North Shore Animal League’s Fashionable Feline Extravaganza! It was held yesterday in the Algonquin Hotel in New York City, to celebrate Matilda the cat’s (of the Algonquin Hotel Matildas) birthday. Also, of course, as a benefit for the “largest no-kill animal rescue and adoption organization in the world.”
Refinery29 was at Wednesday’s Extravaganza, and oh, the pictures they’ve posted. Oh, the indignities these Fashionable Felines suffered. Although dressing a hairless cat (why hairless cats? It seems so cruel) as the Mad Hatter or “ancient Egyptian” is still significantly less insane than tattooing the poor creature.
