cat coloured trousers

be fashionably feline colour co-ordinated
  [vote for,

a range of trousers that are cat coloured. not only will you not clash with your pet in the colour dept. making you look a style fool but their hairs will not show up on your clothes when you leave the house.

among the range of colours comes: white with black splodges, black with white splodges, tabby, ginger, calico, persian blue, siamese cream with points (seal, chocolate, or blue – lilac is out of stock sorry), & burmese brown

each pair of trousers comes with a back pocket complete with a very slim, palm sized hair brush, in the event of an unexpected encounter with the wrong breed.

tails are optional.

Too many trousers! [gnomethang, Oct 05 2004, last modified Oct 21 2004]


       Now just where did you get the inspiration for this?   

       Sounds nice, but you have to ask yourself, would you really want to turn up to a Halfbakery International Conference on Clapledon Common wearing white trousers?

       I hope they're not feline fur trousers.

       When I had a black & white cat, she left black hairs on light-coloured stuff and white hairs on dark-coloured stuff. My black cats (of blessed memory) left grey hairs everywhere. My two grey cats leave different shades of grey depending on which would be most conspicuous, and my three tabby kittens (see Calendar for details) have multiple choice options. I'm past caring. + for the thought.

       this cat is behind any idea that involves color co-ordination (the last vestige of the budget decorator). If you don't have enough skill/talent, or money/other resources most mishmashs of things can be made decent looking or even quite nice by going with a matchy-matchy "color theme".   

       Now you just have to get the cats "on board". They might find it demeaning (they should be flattered)to be a decorating item. But then, aren't cats known to be a little bitchy. They'll get just have to get over it. After all who feeds who.

       believe me, Cat would not go shopping in these pants :)

Our Siamese Chocolate sems to shed his weight in hair every day in inverse proportion to you trouser colour as per [angel's] anno.

       I like to say that - I pick up enough cat hair, I could knit myelf a new cat!
po, Jun 21 2003

       The alternative would be to dye your cat to match your trousers of choice. Not a simple task so I say +

       [po] Knitting your own cat from the droppings. Maybe you could post the idea. It's 2(or more)CatsCrafty. When life gives you lemons make lemonade. Clean up cleaning up. You could even mix the lemonade angle in with the cleaning up. Sell these hand-crafted one- of-a-kind gems at a cat-craft version of a lemonade stand (sell that too!) and then you'd r-e-a-l-l-y clean up in a "lemon-scented" way.

       Cool. But wouldn't the trousers fade if you washed them? Would you have to lick them clean after every use to make sure they stay the same color as your cat? Or would you get your cat to do it?
Jezzie, Jun 22 2003

       There's no need to skin a cat.   

       Coat your trousers in double sided sticky tape. In the spring, just when the cat starts to shed, roll the cat liberally over your trousers. How you explain how you did the crotch area is up to you.
FloridaManatee, Jun 22 2003

       I guess the range of patterns should become more complicated when you have more cats. Currently I am back up to three cats mad. That equates to black, white, orange, brown, beige.   

       (Furry) pastry to you!   

       BTW: can I have whiskers too?

       Consider donning a pair of those Yetti boots (made popular on the alpine slopes in the early 80s) next time you stand in the kitchen and make tin opening noises.

       Transparent trousers that get slowly covered with cat hair so, after a while, they seamlessly blend into your cat's fashion sense. If [angel]'s assertion is true that they deliberately shed hairs to conflict with whatever you're wearing, then they're going to tie themselves up in knots.
PeterSilly, Aug 13 2003

       I'm sure I shouldn't argue on this subject with someone called [thecat], but I really don't fancy a cat knitted from droppings. Eeeee!   

       And keeping on topic, what about tumble-drying your cats repeatedly and then removing the sheets of lint from the filter. These could then be fashioned into strides (or shirts or cardies) that would be guaranteed to not show the fluff.
