This is so off-topic - and yet somehow related...

So finally an excuse to put cat-pictures on the blog (tip from Laura for these Cat-Tastic fashions). Now I had just posted about the fantastic science section at Kinokuniya bookstore in Kuala Lumpur. Well, well. It seems this cat is also all dressed up for Kinokuniya - though probably in Tokyo):


Hey - c'mon. This is related to the previous post :) . And just for the heck of it, here is a bonus pic:

Now, I hope my cat - Billy the Kit (yes, he is from New Mexico) - also reads this post and learns a bit about fashion. Forget about dressing up, he makes it harder for me to even blog:

"Billy the Kit"...nice combination of Urdu and English for a name. This is at least better than my friend's dog's name, that is Billy.

Good catch. Yes, I had to find a name that balanced out New Mexico (where I was at the time) and Pakistan. So of course he is also Bill-ly.

Hi, Salman –

Wow – those cat pictures are really something. Just what kind of research are you doing in Malaysia, exactly? ;)

The “Haute Cature” fashion designer’s comments on that website were great – I like that after you dress your cat up, you should “cheer or yell.” (I think more detailed instructions are warranted. Are you yelling FOR the cat? AT the cat? What should you yell? “Tuna!”?) Your cat looks like he is really doing his best to help you compose your blog postings – using both paws AND his face. He also looks very content, despite his lack of “haute cature.” My cat also likes to be very near to my computer when I am writing, and sometimes gets very opinionated about which one of us is allowed to be on the keyboard at a particular time. She also likes to walk across it at inopportune moments. But perhaps I am just not recognizing her genius in typing words like “llkejjrjrklseee.” Maybe she is trying to tell me something in Icelandic?

P.S. Sorry for the deleted comments. I was trying to undo the username Google had assigned me. Better now. Phew.
