That's right. I'm posting two cat-based blogs in a row. I'm just going to admit it: I'm going through kitten withdrawal. Ever since Cyrus the cat (and his owner, our housemate) moved out, I've been desperately wanting another little animal to snuggle with. Don't get me wrong--I love my husband, and he rocks at snuggling, but there's just something so awesome about having a little kitten lay with you while you watch a movie or something.
Honestly, f I weren't married, I'd be pretty concerned that I was on my way to becoming the "crazy cat lady".
But I digress.
Due to my cat obsession, I stumbled upon this gem: a hoodie with a little pocket that can hold small animals (exactly like a cat, or even a small dog--yippee!!). It's called the Mewgaroo Hoodie, and it's basically a sweatshirt featuring a specially-designed pouch precisely made for keeping dogs, cats or other small pets feeling cozy, safe and close to their owners.
The company that created this spectacular sweatshirt is Unihabitat, a Japanese pet supply company. Okay, so admittedly you'd probably look a bit funny if you were to walk around downtown wearing one of these. Especially since the hoodie isn't just a simple sweatshirt with a pocket. Of course it isn't. It's Japanese, after all.
The Mewgaroo Hoodie takes pet lovin' even further. Much further. Unlike all those, what they call "boring, run-of-the-mill hoodies not made with animals in mind", this sweatshirt also features sewn-on ears and paw pads to complete the proud animal-lover look.
Here's a picture of the sweatshirt on a model to give you an idea of the entire look:
Soooo, yeah...this isn't something I would personally wear out in public. But still, if I were at home with my cute little pet (once I manage to trick my husband into getting one), I can definitely see myself wearing this. In fact, I kind of like the quirkiness that the sweatshirt offers, at least for home use.
But obviously, the real breakthrough with this hoodie is in the pouch. Anticipating that some dogs and cats are prone to shed, the perfectly pet-sized pocket includes a removable lining for easy cleaning. I think that's a great feature.
This sweatshirt seems so well-made and really thought out; I really love it! So where can we all go to buy one??
Well, unfortunately I fell in love with the product before even looking at where I could buy it...The entire product webpage is currently catered only to Japanese-speaking consumers (SO unfair!), so we can only hope that it will soon be available for wider release before too long.
I'll keep all of you fashionistas posted on an international release, which I'm sure will occur before very long, as the product is getting a TON of worldwide media attention.
So, let's all cross our fingers and hope that this is something we can buy before Christmas, and that we'll all be snuggled up with our little furry friends by the new year!
