Glamourpuss: The Enchanting World of Kitty Wigs
Submitter: I’m told a former director adopted a cat and went through a phase where she purchased a bunch of cat books in 2009. Somehow, despite terrible circulation, two made it to 2018 without being weeded: Glamourpuss and Cat Yoga. [Glamourpuss] is by far the funniest. It was checked out 5 times in the first year, but never again. The book is so bad, our consortium wouldn’t even add it to our online catalog.
Holly: My sides hurt from looking at these pictures. Too funny! I have to question a consortium that won’t add a book to the online catalog, though. Is there fine print somewhere that gives them veto power over collection decisions at the member libraries? Hmmmmm.
Every one of those cats looks like it is plotting the death of the person who put the wig on its head.
I’d be curious to see the forearms of the photostylists who dressed the cats.
I can almost hear what these cats are thinking to themselves right now:
Hilarious. Maybe if the book were in the online catalog it would get more attention! People love cat photos.
I would think that even if this doesn’t get checked out much, it definitely gets looked at a lot in the library.
If I was supposed to be studying, I’m sure I’d rather be looking at cats in wigs.
Those cats are TRULY OUTRAGEOUS!
Well, they now have a follow-up coloring book, Marie Catoinette. https://www.kittywigs.com/
This site used to sell the wigs. Almost made me want to get a cat just to wig it! I’m definitely a dog person.
Funniest thing I’ve seen all day!! That consortium must have had no sense of humor.
BTW it is Nico, not Niko. What a terrific band!
That tabby IS. NOT. HAPPY. Not one bit. The black cat in the yellow wig is just gorgeous!
I’m disappointed that all the wigs are photoshopped. Have cat photographers no standards these days?
This is simply the best.
