“A cat’s got her own opinion of human beings. She don’t say much, but you can tell enough to make you anxious not to hear the whole of it.”
— Jerome K. Jerome, English writer & humorist (1859 – 1927)

“Welcome to KCAC’s 2019 Fashion Pet of the Year award show with Sir Percival Smith.”
“Thank you, Nigel. I am so excited to preview some of the new feline fashions that have arrived at Kane County Animal Control. For example, this year’s summer and fall fashion statement is worn by the queen herself, Mesa, a 7-year-old Domestic Shorthair.”
“She definitely answers the question once and for all, ‘Should you wear white after Labor Day?’ ”
“And what’s the answer, Sir Percival? We definitely want the final answer to this question.”
“Well, of course you can, dahling! Feline fashion in the 21st century knows no bounds!”
“Aaannnd, notice her gold mask that accentuates her facial structure and cheekbones. Not a lot of other cats would dare take that risk, but, that accent along with the flowing gold and black raccoon tail — well, all I can say is she is workin’ the red carpet tonight!”
“She is all of it, Sir Percy. And I hear her one true addiction is to get petted morning, noon and night. Although her brother, Yuma, is also a fashion feline, she is fine if adopted separately from him. He tends to weigh her down (no pun intended) and cramp her creativity.”
“Well, Nigel, she has a tendency to throw her diva-ness around, so she would do well as an only feline!”
“With a personality like hers, I would totally agree! She definitely fills up a room.”
“That’s all the fashionista news we have time for today. This is Nigel and Sir Percival, saying goodbye from the Kane County 2019 Fashion Pet of the Year award show.”
