A cat wearing a kimono as well as a wig

Taking a cat for a walk is one thing, but making it wear a kimono and a wig is another altogether. A truly preposterous affair that, judging by its expression, the feline seemed all too aware of.

    Hey, cute cat and all but didn’t you get hit with a bunch of snow? Where’s that?

      We did, but that was Monday. Took this on Saturday in Ginza when the weather was much more accommodating!

    This is why I love Tokyo! You sometimes encounter things that you would only imagine to see in a Mamoru Oshii anime (and by that I don’t mean all the pretentious, self-loving cosplayers). I also like the stark contrast of the intricate kimono and the owner just wearing a plain bomber jacket.

      Yes, you really don’t know what’s round the next corner. And I totally agree. He certainly seems to care more about his cat’s outfit than his own.

    Great picture Lee but is the cat cross with having to wear the costume or is it just the typical feline response to you? You definitely have that effect on them!

      Very true! I’d like to think it was just the outfit, but yeah, probably a combination of the two…

      Yeah. The kimono is the first thing that you notice, but I think it’s the cat’s expression that makes the photo.
