Metro Pets

By Sharon Gomes Thomas


When I think of pet fashion, I usually envision a teacup pooch, beautifully groomed and dressed up in a carefully purchased frilly outfit. If you’ve visited a pet store, you’ll know that most pet fashion is geared towards dogs.

But there is no reason why cat owners and their kitties shouldn’t be sporting something fashionable as well. Especially with the colder weather, felines need something beautiful to warm them up.

Head over to The Sophisticated Cat (http://www.thesophisticated a luxury cat boutique for the discerning fashion feline. Pick up the smashing Sparkle Kitty Sweater. This unique handmade sweater is knit from fuschia eyelash acrylic and mylar yarn. Accented with a crochet flower at the turtleneck and a short ruffled skirt, every fashionable feline will want to strut her stuff wearing this dazzling outfit. To make sure you can let your cat show-off, it has a buttonhole opening for a leash-harness connection.

If you’re looking for something a little more silky rather than sparkly, check out their Pampered Pet Line which features beautiful chic, stylish Asian pet outfits and collars. Each piece is skillfully and beautifully made of embroidered silk satin fabrics. You can choose between the Shanghai Oriental Skirt, or the bright Red Satin Dress. This party outfit is perfect for the Holidays or any formal occasion. The adorable dress is embellished with decorative shiny red nail heads and adorned with a big red satin bow with a brilliant rhinestone in the center. Comes complete with a matching hat & leash.

If sedate is not your kitty’s style, then it’s time for the glamorous Bobcat Wig in blue which features a modern bob hairstyle in an edgy and electric shade of blue. Other wig colors available are red, blonde and pink. Lightweight, synthetic and washable, these wigs are carefully designed and feature comfortable lined ear holes and an adjustable elastic strap to keep the wig in place.

Who says humans and dogs are the only ones who can play dress-up? Kitties can play too.
