OMG more cat fashion!

If you have been following my blog for a while you will know that I love cats. A very lucky owner of a gorgeous feline friend, my cat Mickey rather likes  his bow ties when he feels like dressing up!

However it is NOT EASY to take photos of these little creatures.. They fiddle, they jump, they want to sniff your camera, they want treats!

I have recently discovered an amazing boutique on ETSY which not only stocks awesome handmade feline fashion, but the photography is beautiful! Check out these fun fun fun photos and buy a gift for your puss.

I want to live in Moonrise Kingdom

Its been a couple of months since I have seen this film but I think of it often because I loved it so much. Too long ago I have watched anything so sweet, funny, clever, touching and extremely well styled at the same time. This is a film which will make you remember your first teenage love, those long summers when you were little and it will also make you somehow believe in future. And it really made me want to produce that amazing shoulder bag/carrier so I could take my cat with me everywhere 8))

Bob The Big Issue Cat (L.O.V.E)

OK so this post is not about style or fashion or design, not even vintage. It is about big issues and love and things that touch my heart.I am visiting LA right now and the homeless issue is a problem here just like in other big cities. It makes me think, what can we do, how can we help? If each of us helps a little, gives a little, if we share with others, it really will make a big difference. I want to share this amazing story about an extraordinary friendship, the friendship between James and Bob:

One day about a year ago I was strolling through Denmark Street in London’s West End and I saw a tall man selling Big Issue magazine. A gorgeous ginger tabby is leisurely sprawled over his shoulders, like a fluffy scarf. I had to look twice! The cat seemed so relaxed and happy and I was instantly mesmerized. Do you know how hard it is to convince your cat to go anywhere with you???  Well, not Bob! Bob is happy to roam the streets of London with James, his kind owner. James has told me that he found Bob in his neighbourhood some years ago, he was injured and being picked on by foxes. He took him in and looked after him until Bob got better. Then one day, when James felt that Bob was well again, he opened the front door to expect Bob to run for freedom…But Bob wanted to stay. And he stayed forever. And he comes out with James every day, they walk together, ride the tube together and eat together. I have met them a couple of times since and Bob always looks so well, he has the softest fur and is super friendly and calm. You can see how much these two love each other! These days you can meet them mostly in Angel, so do look out for them, donate some spare cash and give them some love – it will make your heart sing!

CAT walk this way

New cat accessories coming up soon on www.redhairday.co.uk as little Mickey has finally signed the modelling contract with us.

He was playing hard to get and so it took  some organic chicken and a few kitty treats to bribe him! 

He also insisted that his little brother Ikea will get in this  shot   8)

All profits will be donated to a private cat rescue Little Darlings in Chingford, East London. These ladies work so very hard to rescue, rehome and help all these kitties in every way possible.
