    My partner and I have matching cat sweaters which we wear to ugly sweater parties. On the way to one such party, we stopped over at my mother-in-law’s house, and I think she put it perfectly when she asked “could you guys be any more gay?”. Answer: no.

    I can’t be the only more interested in the women wearing the sweaters than the sweater itself, can I? Like do they like do they get to keep the sweater or would they agree with the sentiment I think they look fabulous in their outfits.

    i’ve always been a % dog person, but between this and the weather whiskers app i’m starting to change my mind. AS, could you please stop making me question all the decisions i’ve taken so far?

    jk, don’t ever stop. but now i want a cat, a sweater with a cat and to dress my future cat with a sweater with a cat.

    I think that “Ask Me About My Cat” sweater might be my christmas present to myself. You know, for when I feel like being alone, and I am incapable of telling people this, so I get caught in conversation. This sweatshirt seems perfect for avoiding that!

    Also, it took me forever to realise that #10 was the silhouette of a cat’s head. I thought it was like the outline of a state or a country or something and was wondering what that had to do with conversations about cats. Unless it was the outline of that Japanese cat island. Anyway.
