A friend of mine, knowing that I just started a cat blog, sent me the above invitation a couple days ago. Not knowing anything about Creatures of Comfort or United Bamboo, all I saw were the words ‘CAT CALENDAR PARTY’. I got very excited. Very, very excited. I tried to get pretty much all of my friends to go with me to what was sure to be a magical night. Unfortunately, no one could. Whatever. I’ll go on this amazing journey alone.
Thursday morning I spent about 20 minutes trying to decide the perfect cat themed outfit. I’m crazy that way. Unfortunately, no one at the party saw my awesome fashion because I only spent about 20 minutes at the party. Apparently, Creatures of Comfort and United Bamboo are clothing companies. Very high end clothing companies. I had no idea. I walked in expecting to see little cats in outfits every where, but just saw a bunch of people way richer than I shopping for clothes that cost the same amount I pay in rent. No biggie.
On a small tour of the shop, I did spot this guy, though.
His name is Q (I forgot to ask the owner whether she was a big Star Trek fan or a big James Bond fan), and he is 12yrs young. He was sporting a lovely little hoodie, and was chilling on the couch all on his own. He is possibly the most chill cat I have ever seen. The owner eventually picked him up, and swung him over her shoulders where he just sat. No complaining from this little guy.
After saying goodbye to Q, I wandered over to the area where they were actually selling the calendar. The calendar was being sold for $48, so it was out of my price range, but it was gorgeous! Triple thick pages bound together gives the calendar more of a book feel than something you could buy at a mall kiosk. The photos were just amazing, too. I found out later that all the little outfits the cats were wearing where actually outfits United Bamboo sells to humans. Very cute.
Part of me really wants to frame this. It’s so rad. Here are some images from the actual calendar:
I also found this great behind the scenes video from The Stylish.
If you would like a cat calendar of your very own, they are for sale over at UnitedBamboo.com. Just $45! You can also find all the fashions from the calendar available for your cat on the website! PLUS, grab the 2010 and 2011 cat calendars for the discounted price of $20! Awesome.
