For the recently passed National Cat Day, I decided on a classic pink chiffon tutu. Thankfully, my Paris designer already had my measurements so it could be air shipped in time for my photo shoot.

Though I sometimes wonder why there's no National Human Day, I always quickly realize: humans are here for us! We try to be kind so long as they keep a steady supply of Temptations on hand and pause whatever they're doing when I'm in the mood for head nuggies.

I do think it especially appropriate that National Cat Day falls in October just before Halloween. The eve of All Saint's Day just wouldn't be the same without us!
