We can't decide whether it's cruel or adorable to dress animals up in costumes, but one thing is for sure: Photos of cats in ridiculous outfits are always hilarious. (The furball in photo No. 31 does not seem to agree.) The Algonquin Hotel hosted a birthday party for Matilda, its kitty mascot, yesterday; the festivities included a fashion show that saw felines in all manner of silly getups, including one completely inexplicable pink number that featured cat-sized sunglasses. We don't understand it, but damn if it didn't make us laugh.

How many years has the Algonquin been doing the cat fashion show? I write about NYC animal history, and would like to add this to a post I am working on. Even if it's fairly new, it will be history someday! www.frenchhatchingcat.com

Anthropomorphism is any attribution of human characteristics (or characteristics assumed to belong only to humans) to animals, non-living things, phenomena, material states, objects or abstract concepts, such as spirits or deities. The term was coined in the mid 1700s.[1][2] Examples include animals and plants and forces of nature such as winds, rain or the sun depicted as creatures with human motivations, and/or the abilities to reason and converse. The term derives from the combination of the Greek (nthrpos), "human" and (morph), "shape" or "form". As a literary device, anthropomorphism is strongly associated with art and storytelling where it has ancient roots. Most cultures possess a long-standing fable tradition with anthropomorphised animals as characters that can stand as commonly recognised types of human behavior. In contrast to this, such religious doctrines as the Christian Great Chain of Being propound the opposite, anthropocentric belief that animals, plants and non-living things, unlike humans, lack spiritual and mental attributes, immortal souls, and anything other than relatively limited awareness.
