Looking Good

My great friend Katie recently reported on the preparations going on with her girl for an upcoming holiday party. I thought you kitties might like some advice on how to help your humans get ready for any holiday festivities (naturally you look perfect exactly as you are).

First for those of you whose humans wear makeup, you don't need to look any farther on tips on how to line an eye. We invented the cat-eye. I don't recommend taking the lining down your cheek as I have here, you really need fur to rock this look. I also wouldn't go for a smokey-eye. If you're like Mom you'll spend a good portion of the night rubbing your eyes and you'll get smokey enough. No need to start off the evening that way, you don't want to end the evening as a raccoon.

If you think hosiery needs some tabby-like runs, well, you have claws, use your imagination. Note: Take this step before the hosiery is put on the leg.

New shoes? Nothing says holiday like a little hairball remnant. Aim for an edge, you don't want YOUR shoes ruined.

New outfit? You know what we say "No outfit is complete without cat hair." Roll around on all the chairs so they get it on the rump when they sit down. They won't remember to look there.

Just think of all the great icebreakers your humans will have...

"Was that a hairball on your strappy sandals?"

"Is that raccoon hair on your butt, or do you have a tabby?"

"I see you have pets, do you have a lint roller for these tuxie hairs on my leg?"

No need to thank me. It's all in a day's work.

P.S. Don't forget next week is Hunt Week. All you have to do to play is post something Hunt related on your blog next week. Her Cheapness is not putting up a prize so it's just for fun.

Awesome tips! I like putting claws to winter tights to make creative designs and to also hear my mom say some really interesting words...

Hey there Fin!

Thanks for the cool shout-out on our party fashion preparations here!

You bring up some very important points. I'm definitely going to have to talk to her about her makeup. I've heard rumors of stopping at the Mac counter for false eyelashes today... I don't know, but that's kind of scaring me.

And, I better save up my hairballs over the next few days!

mew!

Maggie May said...

Great beauty tips, Fin! We'll be sure to pass them along to our mom. She could use all the help she could get!

The Monkeys said...

Thanks for the tips, Fin! Our Mom has a lot of parties to go to this year, so we're looking forward to making it even better for her!

Eric and Flynn said...

That is good advice. We are good at giving the furry rump look. Ginger and white fur makes lovely patterns on black clothes.

Well, Austin, being that he's an HP, has fur that is hard to see - but Jay's is perfect (being a marble bengal, each fur strand has three different colors!). So we're going to grab JayJay and rub him all over Mom's dress! That should take care of dressing her up for this season!

Thanks for the tips!
Hugs & Purrs,
Nico (w/ Austin & JayJay) :)

Oh Fin! You are just too funny! They really should thank you, because if they collect enough of your hair, they can make really neat Christmas presents out of it, too!

You were such a cute little kitten.

Fin, it sounds like you do a great job helping your humans get ready for a party. When I was little, I once chewed my Mom's best dressy shoes. No, she did not think that the little teeth marks around the sides of her shoes added class and style to them. What can I say? They were there on the floor with me and I was teething. Heh heh.

Tuck said...

Those are great tips Fin!

Rupert said...

Wonderful tips! They make my Peoples laugh.

Paws 'n Claws,
