A heady mix for the ladies (some ladies – I shouldn’t generalise) of cats and shoes. These are Vogue photographs and although it is not stated by Vogue, as far as I know, the cats are purebreds in my opinion and I have, for the fun of it, identified the breeds. I can’t identify the shoes. I’ll leave that to the ladies. Although I realise they are all “flats” – shoes without tall heels. These go in an out of fashion. Flats are always in fashion for the spouses or girlfriends of short men. When the famous Polish tennis player, Caroline Wozniacki, was dumped by Rory McIlroy, MBE, the world No.1 golfer, she said it was the first time in three years she has worn flat shoes. Rory is 5 feet 9 inches tall, which is short by pro-golfer standards but he hits the ball further than nearly all of them!
Bombay cats have a coat of black patent leather. The head and eyes are similar to the American Burmese in my opinion. It is somewhat extreme with overly large and round eyes. The coat is superb. Black is usually an unpopular colour but this coat is pure luxury.
These are Himmies or Himalayan cats (pointed Persians). They are modern versions of the traditional cat.
The cat in this picture has to be an American Shorthair in my opinion. It is in the face. American SHs often have silver tabby coats like this cat. It suits them.
My thanks to Catsparella for the idea and the pics.
