A Message From Ramius

A while back, I called your attention to an item being marketed by Target as "Cat Hats." I explained the evil plot behind such a marketing attempt and I thought I covered the consequences of such wanton disrespect of cats by humans. Apparently, you weren't listening.

A couple of weeks ago, the Mindy person, relative or something of my main servant, "Mommy," alerted us to a website that was selling cat wigs. Excuse me? I'm already covered in hair, why do I want your weird human looking hair on me? Perhaps if I was a Mr. Bigglesworth type of cat I would be interested in a wig for camouflage purposes. (I've seen Austin Powers, I'm not sure if that's really a cat.) I can only hope that those of you with the wee dogs you carry in your purses (WHY? I mean if you can get away from the dog, why bring the ridiculous thing with you? No, seriously, someone please explain this to me.) see the potential here and let the manufacturers know that they are not selling kitty wigs, but more stupid accessories for canines who will allow this type of thing.

To add insult to injury, the Mommy person showed me another Internet trend (clearly the Internet is a place full of evil and villainy) - cat sweaters and internationally inspired knitted cat hats (scroll down to see the each and every country currently represented). Mommy assured me that she would never knit me a cat hat or a sweater, so for the time being I will let her live. It was a bit touch and go there since she just "happened" to know about these sites in the first place - yeah, sure.

The point here is, just because someone else is dressing their cat up, doesn't mean you have to. Remember, we have fangs and we aren't afraid to use them. Don't make me tell you again.

This post was dictated to the Pink Lemon by Ramius in the middle of the night. Unfortunately, he was not available for a photo shoot this morning as he is recovering from the emotional turmoil of discussing such a shocking trend, so he requested that I use a photo he graciously posed for a while back. By the way, if you are on Ravelry, check out the cat sweaters and international cat hats there, I'm not suggesting you actually make them, I'm just saying you should look at them.

Ramius, If your mommy tries to put a hat, wig or sweater on you, you can move to Arkansas and I won't put them on you.

Those are so wrong on so many levels, Ramius. I understand your pain.

Ramius, if by some ridiculous mistake someone does buy you a cat wig, just make Finn wear it - he'll probably think it's great!

Silly stuff. I have to admit that some of the pictures made me smile. But I would not knit similar items for my cats.

I shall not even mention this to my Meezers. They love me a lot, but there is a limit. I understand!
