Ok, that's cute.

I'm sorry to see this blog perpetuating the sizeism of the fashion industry. The average cat is a size 10, but you won't see that reflected here or on the catwalk. Plus size kitties=more to snuggle.

Claw reduction is a big controversy this season.

spot on parody.

And really, the tough thing to do in cat fashion is accessorize appropriately. (Self-link - I have rad cats.)

There aren't enough scraggly tomcats who are being positioned as trendsetters when in reality they're just colorblind and create their outfits by throwing darts at the laundry hamper.

That would make it spot on.

What would really make it spot on would be some shots of effortlessly elegant cats on bikes.

Oh good! Orange is in this season. My marmalade tabby will be happy to know. My Calico, on the other hand, is going to be QUITE VOCAL about her displeasure. As she is about EVERYTHING.

As a connoisseur of parody, I proclaim this excellent and perfect in tone.

Sartorialist site......scroll down to the picture of the kids on the beach...then read...

"As you may or may not know I taught myself photography by shooting my own kids."

and try not to picture that in a very wrong way...

heh

I like this. A lot. I wish I had first seen it several months in the future when it has more than 7 posts.

Plus size kitties

One of mine weighs 21 pounds. He's the one that always wants to lay on my lap.

As a fan of the Sartorialist, I find this to be the best type of parody - very knowing yet not too snarky. It is good to see that some people still realise that you can be clever without being too catty (see what I did there? Huh? Okay, I'm going now ...)

This is really good.

I like cats, and I hate this site -- it actually makes me sad. they're stray cats, and homeless cats who spend their lives outside, badly fed and in danger and in the cold make me sad. give them a bowl of cat food and some clean water instead of taking their picture for your silly blog.

also, The Sartorialist is a textbook case of involuntary humor -- that guy takes pictures of people who are about to get into fashion shows (ie fashion editors, buyers, stylisys, etc) and it's somehow supposed to be a representation of reality -- street style. yeah, it's the street style of people who get a shitload of designer clothes for free, get invited to every sample sale on earth, and can afford 500 euro handmade shirts and 8,000 euro handmade suits. it's fashion porn as realistic as the San Fernando Valley porn -- in terms of looks, size, everything, the realism level is the same.

but then, as the average 14 year old who has just downloaded "Lesbian Vibrator Gangbang Bukkake Bitches no. 64" likes to think -- dream, really -- that he has just witnessed realistic female behavior, I'm sure the Sartorialist aficionados seriously think that all the people in the Sixteenth in Paris, downtown Milan, and Lower Manhattan dress the way the Sartorialist's models do. (more power to the guy, by the way -- wasn't he a clerk at Brooks Brothers or something? he's found a way out of retail hell, more power to him and his site)
