This is going to sound like my Academy Award moment – but rather than apologise for it I am just going to own it! Last weekend I was super-honoured to win the Best Dressed award at the RSPCA NSW Cat Film Festival – an annual event which highlights the work of the RSPCA and includes a fantastic compilation of the most hilarious cat videos the interweb has to offer. What made the award even more special is that it wasn’t something I was planning to enter – one of the lovely volunteers picked me out and asked me to participate. Over the last few years I’ve been becoming more and more committed to wearing feline fashion on a daily basis, and so it was really moving to win this award. I really don’t know what there is to aspire to next in life!
My outfit for the evening – obviously my new favourite – was the Need I Say Amour dress from Modcloth perfectly paired with the Up Your Alley Cat Flat in Stripe – also from Modcloth. As always, ModCloth never ceases to amaze me (and wildly exceeds my expectations) when it comes to feline fashion. In my experience to date their clothes are always excellent quality, great fit and great value for money. They offer sizes and styles to suit every shape and preference. It’s rare to be able to shop online with such confidence – however my Modcloth experience has resulted in many fantastic outfits and hardly any returns. Best of all, it comes with fantastic customer service and a really strong commitment to international customers.
An extra honour on the night was following in the footsteps of last year’s winner – my dear friend Dr Anne Fawcett of Small Animal Talk. It’s no secret that vets and vet nurses are my heroes and Anne is no exception. As well as working long hours in two practices, she writes a blog which is extremely informative and educational for the veterinary community and pet owners alike. She’s also an amazing photographer, and I’d like to acknowledge and thank her for several of the photos in this post. Anne’s blog has helped me learn a lot about the issues facing older pets such as my beloved Archibald, with topics such as dementia in pets and feline renal disease. I highly recommend her blog to anyone who is interested in companion animals.
So now to my acknowledgements (strangely they didn’t hand me the microphone on the night for a lengthy acceptance speech)! In addition to Anne, I’d like to thank my husband Dean and my wonderful cats Archibald, Atticus and Sam for all their love, support and daily inspiration. My sincere thanks to the RSPCA NSW for a fantastic event and for the tremendous honour and prestige associated with this award. And to ModCloth again for their fantastic commitment to the very best in feline fashions!
And of course thanks to you – my dear readers – for stopping by and taking the time to read up on our latest adventures. We can’t thank you enough!
Liza and Archibald! x
