I thought it was funny; I’m an Archie McPhee fan and it’s a very clever send-up. Then he sent me a link to “CATPRIN, a tailor for cats.” I thought this was VERY funny. I especially like the introductory text and the instructions:
CATPRIN, a tailor for cats. Ever imagined dressing up your lovely cat into a fabulous beauty? You don’t have to dress her everyday, in fact she might not feel comfortable with a dress on for days. Just dress her up only on special occasions like her birthday, takes a photo and that should leave you lots of memories and fantasies.
Dress me up! Please! Meow…..
Have fun with CatPrin
- 1. Dress her up. Cheer or yell, do whatever you like to enjoy the moment with your family.
- 2. After you are enough with your joy, take a photo! Take some poses and leave her some cute photos!
- 3. Remove her clothes and give her a hub, say “Thank you!”
Don’t forget to “hub” her! Otherwise, how will she know you “are enough with your joy?” Here is one of my favorite CatPrin outfits (with description):
Leopard’s Hat and Shawl, 5,300 Yen
Wow! Kind of scary! Am I?
Cute cat becomes gorgeous and wild leopard! A single shawl acts as a foppish muffler as well. The back of both the hat and the shawl are textures of tartan check, velcrod, and can be attached or detached easily.
I need to look into this revolutionary new fastener – “velcrod.” Japanese technology is always so far ahead of the rest of the World.
Here’s one more choice ensemble and description:
Anne’s Housekeeper Package, 3,800 Yen
A Cat with long red hair!? Here comes the Star of the masterpiece “Anne of Green Gables”!
Let her play the leading role in the masterpiece “Anne of Green Gables”! Isn’t her coquettish red hair cute? Let’s give her a broom and this lady with little red hood , is likely to start cleaning up your room. 🙂 The country-tone blouse are made of the same material as the hood, presenting a consistency in the appearance. The yellow flower in the center of the collar is impressive as well! All ornaments are velcrod and can be attached or detached easily.
Ha ha! What fun! But, at some point, the insecurity begins creeping in. Am I turning into a “Crazy Cat Lady?” Yes, I talk to my cats. Yes, I cuddle and hug my cats and kiss them on their little heads. Yes, I made each of my cats her own little hand-crocheted afghan. Yes, they own about five hundred toys. Yes, I do bathe them occasionally. Yes, indeed, I do call them my “kitten children.”
Nevertheless, I’ve given it considerable thought, and I’ve decided that, though I’m clearly a “crazy lady,” I am NOT a “Crazy Cat Lady.” These are the reasons I protest a designation as “Crazy Cat Lady:”
And now, the ultimate tool has been provided by Archie McPhee. I took the “ARE YOU A CRAZY CAT PERSON?” quiz thoughtfully provided with their item description of the “Crazy Cat Lady Action Figure.” Here are my results:
See? I am NOT a “Crazy Cat Lady!”
Can you get more scientific than that? Not only has this test definitively confirmed that I am NOT a “Crazy Cat Lady,” apparently, I am not crazy at all! What a relief!
Sheesh – all the money I’ve wasted on therapy! Then again, perhaps counseling has prevented the possibility of my “someday” qualifying…
