It has long been believed that cats don’t like being dressed up. The founders of Mochi Couture, the first clothing line made specifically for cats, challenges that notion.
According to an interview with co-founder and CEO of Mochi Couture, “it’s not that cats don’t enjoy being dressed up. Just like dogs, cats all have their own distinct characteristics and qualities. Some cats actually really like being dressed up and others take some time to adjust to it. One of the main reasons for this misconception is because there is no brand in the market tailored specifically for cats. This usually results in cat owners purchasing dog clothing usually designed for smaller canine breeds. Since the clothing isn’t made for the unique structure of a cat, it’s immensely uncomfortable for them. Think about being fitted into a coat that’s three times smaller or larger than your size. Pretty uncomfortable huh? That’s why we designed Mochi Couture, to make adorable and comfortable clothing specifically for cats. Fashion should be accessible to every furry (or not so furry) companion because why do dogs get to have all the fun? (The American Reporter)
Furthermore, many cats actually can benefit from cat clothing. For example, cats with obsessive self harming habits, those who have had a surgery that makes it dangerous to lick their stitches, and cats who don’t have enough fur to regulate their temperature in cold weather (such as Sphinx cats). For these reasons, Mochi Couture is purrrfect.
But that doesn’t mean that it’s for everyone. In fact, Mochi Couture does not advocate clothing for all cats. They make it aware that it’s important to slowly accustom your cat to something new and avoid clothing them for long periods of time. It’s also important to be aware of your cat’s particular personality and never force your cat to do something it does not have to. Basically, cat clothing it’s simply adorable and perfect for several occasions, but just don’t overdo it. Also, for comfort and safety reasons make sure that you only purchase clothing designed specially for cats by a reliable and trusted source like Mochi Couture.
