Whoever that is, they appear to be the honey badger of cats.  Positively enjoying the armor.  My cats go all floppy and turn into whiny biatches when I dress them up.

Now I have to go and spray paint my cat brown.

Lando Lincoln: Now I have to go and spray paint my cat brown.


I was thinking the same thing. I'd just need to dip her mane, the rest of her is the right color.

/and she's a ragdoll, too, that I managed to adopt from a rescue. They really do let you do just about anything to them.
//except brush her. Only other people can do that, not her owner. . . :/

That cat looks ready to pull the arms off a droid.

A really terrible shop at that.

Great concept, poor execution, awesome looking cat.

Only if I was a nerd like Subby, NERD! *pushes up his glasses* Strictly speaking though, I am a higher class of nerd though. I don't think about imaginary spaceships that fly by magic, I am a space nerd and demand spaceships that are possible. All hail Space X! Not that Star Trek Wars weren't alright I guess, I enjoyed the first three of course with Woody Harrelson as Luke. Though Jedi is the best one of course.

Motherf*cking NOBODY tells me how to dress up the cat I don't own and would never dress up. Big mistake, Subby.

When cosplaying with a cat, I find it easier to simply dress the humans around the cat.

The orange tabby can be Spot, just by adding black pants and the appropriate Starfleet uniforms to the people holding him.

The black and white Boston thumb cat, who is legitimately huge, can be Chet from Christopher Moore's vampire novels just by re-dressing the humans as a Midwestern aspiring writer-vampire and a 26-year-old redheaded vampire and taking said cat to the right party, ideally one where everybody's read 'Bloodsucking Fiends' and 'Bite Me.' (We did not shave him, but after he had surgery and was shaved anyway, we did pose with him for one picture. It made up for the vet bill somewhat.)

The black cat can be everyone from Thackery Binx to the black cat from Coraline, depending on how one's little goddaughters feel like dressing to pose with him. And the white-and-tabby cat managed to look absolutely precious with our little niece, who handmade her Mildred Hubble costume to the 1986 movie specs and pleaded for me to rework last year's Elphaba costume as Miss Hardbroom. (We take Halloween a bit more seriously in our household than most. It is a high holy day to crazy cat ladies and the children people inexplicably trust us with.)

But then, my cats do not generally wear clothing. That's what godchildren and little nieces are for. Cats actually have some level of dignity.

HAHA,  I have a cat that looks almost exactly like that one.

@ subby - Yes, I would.

@ just about everyone else - why do people do shiat like that to their pets?  It's not right.  (And yes, some_beer_drinker, that shiat was funny as hell.)

I wouldn't dress the cat up.  I'd just name it Chewy and let people figure it out for themselves.

I've got *THREE* cats that look like that, a tortie Persian, a blue Persian, and a red tabby Persian.

Never has the idea occurred to me that I should be so mean as to make them wear something they don't want to wear, and that isn't necessary for medical or health reasons.

Well, sometimes I throw a sock over their backs, because that's funny.

I'm amused, because my Sir Robin is somewhere around 32 pounds.  Mrs. Samurai gets upset when I call him "Robba the Hutt" or "Sir Cumference".

If that outfit was like $50 instead of $500 I'd buy two for my cats.

My cat doesn't mind having things put on her but she's a monster and nothing would fit.  She's 78 cm long and 18 lbs and in great shape.

OMG, I laughed so hard and was trying to do it quietly that a coworker thought I was crying.  That's absolutely hilarious.

The two pedigreed Persians we have both have that "break", the line above the nose.  I guess that's what the breeding standards call for in a "show cat".

The non-pedigreed cat doesn't have the break.
