Animal Love: Cats

I must have been living under a rock because I only just discovered My Cat from Hell on Animal Planet. I know that every episode is pretty much the same — play with your cats, people! But I got utterly addicted. Both Grace and I have been trying to find ways to make our homes even more cat friendly, the ultimate dream being this Japanese designed home. So when “cat” was one of the most requested animals for Animal Love, I was only too happy to oblige. I do have two cats at home (see all the D*S team pets here), so I try to keep my cat lady tendencies (somewhat) under wraps, but not long ago, I saw a super cool girl on the L train with an awesome tapestry cat tote (sort of like this), which has inspired me to embrace my cat lovin’ side in fashion and at home. So let’s be brave together and let our cat lady (or guy) flag fly high. — Amy Azzarito

    I have a Dolly Parton “Coat of many colors” cat clothing story for you guys:
    When I was in Kindergarten I had a blue jumper and I told my mom I was embarassed to keep wearing the dress because I felt like everyone else had more clothes than me. I had just adopted a cat from the Human Society, so my mom embroidered a little cat face on the front and I LOVED it. It was so sweet of her to do, I wish I still had the jumper.

    Here are a line of wire felines I recently made for Jonathan Adler (each approx 2′ x 2′).

    Nice work, Amy.
