Fur-ocious Pics From The Cat Fashion Show

If you've been stewing for years about the fact that no one has yet to make a cat-version of Best In Show, brace yourself—our wily photographer (and resident cat enthusiast) stumbled upon this feline-fête that's got our whole office in hysterics. Specifically, the Fashionable Feline Extravaganza, an event thrown by the North Shore Animal League, to celebrate the birthday of the Alqonquin Hotel's resident kitty, Matilda. Part fashion show, part Cat Lady convention, this year's bash played host to a procession of Persians, Siameses, Sphinxes, Cheshires, and a handful a Tabbies dressed up as everything from Edward Cullen to Elizabeth Taylor—plus, what pet party would be complete without an Avatar? So, brace yourself—our gallery of fur-balls is not for the feline faint of heart.
