Had I the heavens' embroidered cloths,
Enwrought with golden and silver light,
The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
Of night and light and the half-light,
I would spread the cloths under your feet:
But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams under your feet,
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.
We are pleased to note that we cats and
dogs are not the only critters out there made to wear things we’d rather not.
Yes straight from the land of the rising sun we bring you ‘Rodent Couture’.
Tokyo-based designer, Maki Yamada, offers a selection of wacky clothes and
accessories for rodents ranging from $3.50 to $18.50. The creations include a
black-and-red ninja suit, a lace wedding dress with matching veil, and a straw
hat with clip-on human like hair extensions. While the premise of guinea pig
clothes may seem ridiculous to some, Yamada truly believes her project is for
the better good of guinea pigs worldwide. “A lot of people get bored with their
guinea pigs,” she reasoned. “They will take photos of them for the first week
and then get bored and don’t care about them. But if you put clothes on them
for a special occasion and post more pictures of them online, you are at least
giving the guinea pig more love and attention.” Her next project will be
outfits for prairie dogs. What next may be a skunk? I’d like to see her try. We dedicate this post to Ann My Pawsitively Pets here for Nibblet.
And if you think those were bad.......kitties run and hide!
