Bored? Out of work? Poor? Decorate your cat!

6 Jan

The Jerome is surprisingly willing to be adorned. Here he models a sparkling diamond pendant on an elegant silk ribbon and a hand-tatted lace collar.

If one happens to be un- or under-employed, snow-bound, or restless in some other way and temporarily impecuniary, one can re-create this look for one’s own darling feline companion with a few inexpensive items.

If one doesn’t have the Hope (or other named) diamond around, one can use a costume glass pendant. If one doesn’t have silk or velvet ribbon at hand, one can use recycled Christmas (or other gift-laden holiday) ribbon. If one doesn’t have the skill to tat up a collar, one can find an old doily and carefully remove the middle so it fits over one’s cat’s slender head.

The Jerome is looking rather like The Falstaff, but it is surely due to an unflattering camera angle.

    I’m impressed that your kitty tolerated such elaborate decor about its neck. But he sure is handsome in it.

    He’s surprisingly tolerant of things around his neck. He doesn’t like to be picked up or held (unless he’s being carried to his food dish), and he’s only interested in being petted for a few minutes per day, but I can put just about anything around his little neck (and he lets me trim his claws, too). Your furry friend is also very charmant!

    THAT IS SO ADORABLE. I JUST THIS MORNING RAN ACROSS A HYSTERICAL WEBSITE THAT SELLS PINK, BLUE, AND BLONDE KITTY WIGS AT THE COST OF 50.00 PER WIG. THE BOY CAT LOVES WEARING THE WIGS…HER GIRL CAT DOES NOT…MY CATS WOULD NOT ENJOY IT AT ALL. MY DAUGHTER, BEFORE PASSING IN OCT. 2009, WORE MANY WIGS BECAUSE OF THE S/A OF CHEMOTHERAPY AND YOU HAD TO WATCH OUR OLDEST CAT AS HE WOULD HIDE HER WIGS.
    YOU HAVE CERTAINLY DONE A LOT OF REMODELING…WORK…WORK…..
