As a cat owner, there aren’t many times when I feel even the slightest hint of jealousy towards dog people. After all, cats are the best animals, and I’d always prefer to scoop poop out of a litter box rather than use a plastic bag to pick a steaming nugget up off the sidewalk. Dignity, people!
However, when it comes to pet fashion, I’ll admit that dog owners have it good. They get to bedazzle their canines in all manner of ridiculous costumes, while most smart felines will show you their kindly claws if you so much as pop a reindeer hat on their head.
Enter the bow tie! As a piece of kitty fashion, they’re an easy way to spruce up your cat while not stressing her out, mainly because they’re basically fancy collars. That being so, here’s a snapshot of dapper cats showing off their neckwear.
The look on this cat’s face lets you know that he’s totally enthralled with his natty green bow tie. His name is Beans, and he’s a 2-year-old chap who resides in Melbourne, Australia. That’s fine bow tie country.
You can totally get into the seasonal swing of things with a bow tie. This ginger-and-white champ was all about showing off his neckwear during Thanksgiving.
The much-maligned black cat is an excellent foil for some top-notch bow tie action. Consider this feline’s fur as but a blank canvas to be perked up by a vivid bow tie. The matching yellow in the cat’s eyes and the neck accoutrement is a savvy touch that will not go unnoticed.
Out portly pal here is at the forefront of feline neckwear, combining a tartan bow tie with an excellently starched collar. It gets no more formal than this.
This cat is named Muta the Munchkin. His terrific posture and tasteful blue bow tie lets you know that he’s all about maintaining a sense of decorum and upholding formal social norms. Quite the crusader.
Here we have Rollo. He’s a Scottish Fold who obviously has impeccable taste in bow ties. That’s obvious enough from the picture. As for his shocked gaze? I can only assume he’s suddenly realized he is not following Taylor Swift’s cats on Instagram. Sottish Folds unite!
