The second installment of United Bamboo’s beloved cat calendar went up for sale last week. And last night, we feted the cattastic calendar at Creatures of Comfort (205 Mulberry St.), where framed prints of the cats done up in RTW United Bamboo frocks are being auctioned off to benefit Animal Haven and Kitty Kind (as if you needed another excuse to go to Creatures of Comfort).
Beyond raising funds to help the kitties, the best part about last night’s party was the chance to see the glorious calendar in full. On the flip side of every catetorial calendar page, there’s a kitty bio (including their pet peeves) and super cute anecdotes about them. Like how Oscar, Mr. February, is blind and has cheated death twice and does NOT like it when you blow on his whiskers! And that Egon lived in Istanbul for a while. And that TJ loves seaweed nori. Of course he does.
But we’re sure you want to know more. So we bring you, exclusively, the backstory behind the United Bamboo calender cats.
