Of course they do! What exactly does this fine fuzzy feline expect? This cat scans wider than normal due to these gaudy striated blotches!
Here’s a tip for our self-conscious pet: the next time you happen into that upscale catberdashery out at the new lifestyle center, why don’t you check out the finery that all the other cool cats are wearing? I bet you’ll see chalk-stripes, and wide-wale, and multi-color weaves, and herringbones, and houndstooth — ALL of them running from head to tail! (Or, in the case of the subtly-striped, ultra-formal evening attire that gives a puss that striking white cat or black cat look, running from head to tails.)
So, le chat, if you seek fashionable flair, in one of your next lives why don’t you don a coat of a different color, n’est-ce pas?
