I recently read a joke about how the Internet consists of 30% porn, 30% cats and 40% everything else. It's probably not far off from the truth: cats can become celebrities overnight for simply having the right grumpy face, while people will spend their nights on Reddit looking at Imgr posts of everyone else's cats. It's not surprise that the Feline obsession has made its way into fashion: from the Marc Jacobs cat flat, cats have made it to the runwalks, Urban Outfitters, Romwe, Lookbook.nu and every other fashion outlet you can imagine. We're only a step away from reaching he dedication of Egyptians to their cat pals, and mummifying them as if they were gods them in order to bring our companions to everlasting peace with us.
The Ballet Cats is a very small online destination that will satisfy the cat lover in all of us. I can't tell whether they are just really, really into cats or, like me, think that this whole cat obsession is getting ridiculous, but I do love the ironic undertone of their collection. It's quite affordable as well, with sweatshirts under $50 and flat-rate shipping to the US at $10.
My favorite, however, is not cat related: the pillow at the bottom is called "Oh fuck, you just crushed the entire Liliput village", and, true to its title, depicts a scene of slaughtered Liliputians. I'm not usually one for gruesome, but this is just too awesome to pass by. My couch needs one, now.
