Now, on to the kittens! 🙂 It’s been a while since I featured our Maine Coon twins, Perseus and Prometheus, here on the blog. They were both desperate to get involved while I was shooting this outfit, so today we have a rare photo of both of them almost being relaxed at the same time. Almost.
Out little darlings had to have some dental work done yesterday due to chronic gingivitis, which apparently is common in this breed (we didn’t know, so we never brushed their teeth). The vet was sure that a few teeth would have to come out, but thankfully it didn’t turn out to be that bad. Now once they are all healed up we’ll have to embark upon a good daily oral care routine. Yes, for the cats. This sounds incredibly challenging to me. If you think it’s difficult getting a normal-sized house cat to do something it doesn’t want to do, try it with a 22-pound Maine Coon. Even keeping their fur detangled is a feat of strength that requires both Mr. Kitty and I, and we both end up exhausted and covered in cat hair. But they are worth the effort, and quickly stop complaining once the treats are in front of them.
Today’s outfit is a bit of a combination of 40s and Victorian-era inspiration. Wearing this, I discovered I’m actually growing quite fond of tucked-in blouses. I never thought the day would come when I would say that. Tucking lends a polished look to an office outfit, especially with a tailored blouse.
Both the blouse and the belt are from eBay. The skirt is from Macy’s. See the brooch (and a previous episode of tucking) in another Victorian-esque office outfit here.
