Cat bling

I went out today to look for some cat accessories for when I get Miss Sophie home. I had no idea of the world into which I am, apparently, about to be initiated. You can buy just about any piece of crap precious item imaginable for your kitty. Here are some samples:

A pet carrier, which can be worn like a handbag, for when you want to take your pet for a walk. That would be a walk where you do the walking and your pet looks out in embarrassment from the frilly pink face hole.

Of course, depending on how much your pet weighs, your shoulder may get sore. In that case, pop your little darling into the pet stroller!

What pet could be happy without a collar? You have your choice of the trendy bandana collar or, for the more sophisticated lady, a delicate jewelled number.

Your cat must have exercise, particularly if she is an indoor cat. A floor-to-ceiling cat gym should solve that problem.

And finally... what kitty household is complete without a self-flushing, self-washing cat litter box?

Poor Sophie. She's going to be horribly disappointed when she finds out her new mummy bought a plain, carpeted scratching post from The Reject Shop and will be buying an ordinary old $5 litter tray with no lid and no flush at all, self- or otherwise.

Maybe just as disappointed as cats have been from The Beginning Of Time to see there'll be no self-flushing stuff til the 21st century ... Oh wait, they've been fine! I bet Miss Sophie will be ultimately happy too :)

Hi Femina and thanks so much for visiting me! - I am really enjoying your blog and Miss Sophie is just adorable, such a pretty cat. (She looks like a jewelled collar girl to me;)!)... I am finding your posts of your childhood abuse really interesting and helpful, I went through something like this when I was little and am looking forward to reading more...
Take care chick and have a good weekend.

WOW! That is seriously out of control! I can't believe you can buy a pet stroller! More to the point, I can't believe that there are people who actually DO buy them! Perhaps the same people who employ the services of the "Pet Photographer" I saw driving around Camberwell last year?!

I would just like to have video footage of a cat using a self-flushing litter tray. I think there would be additional puddles to clean up due to fright!!

Love it. Ohh, people can get interesting when pets are involved.

(I used to get pet stocking food things for my guinea pigs for Christmas. But that was the only time I did anything sad like that! The only!)

Oh my gosh those products are amazing! I think I could even have fun shopping for a cat even though I do not even own one. You know you are going to have some fun arent you? Miss Sophie is a gorgeous name!

Femina said...

She's really just Sophie, not Miss Sophie, but given that she hasn't been formally introduced to you all yet I thought it was better to use her formal name! ;)

One more week until I can pick her up... even without the cat bling I'm super-excited!
