Takako Isawa’s brilliant advice on how to dress cats, is probably applicable across species. I can think of a few women who would love to be treated with such celebration and love. Are you listening, men?
“1. You need to dress a cat. And you will say to a cat together with a family. “It has changed just for a moment”. [ "it being very dear" or ] You will pass pleasant one time.
2. If a family and a cat become fortunate, you will take a commemorative photo! Therefore, please photo your cat lovelily with much trouble.
3. If it finishes taking a photograph, you will make it remove clothes from a cat immediately. You will say then, without forgetting the language of gratitude to a cat. “– be flooded — a way — good — having done one’s best — ! — ”
Or, translated: “First, dress her up. Cheer or yell. Do whatever you like to enjoy the moment with your family. Second, after you are enough with your joy, take a photo! And third, remove her clothes and give her a hug, say ‘Thank you!’”
Ok, well maybe the “enjoy the moment with your family” bit is a bit intimate for a human being, but … many women I know wouldn’t be averse to a bit of dressing up in beautiful hand made clothing, followed by cheering and gratitude, once those clothes are removed.
Isawa has published a book called “Fashion Cats,” (available in November) featuring enugmatic images of her pets dressed in her homemade designs.
The cats, the clothes, and mostly, the cats expressions, are a joy to behold:
