Calling All Crazy Cat Ladies

Don’t bother asking me whether I’m a dog person or a cat person, because I have immeasurable affection for both species. (I also love, though strictly from afar, foxes, coyotes, wolves, lions, leopards, and essentially anything else you might find on your average safari.) But I’ll confess: I cultivate a soft spot for felines that runs deep. I strongly identify with their capricious temperaments, desire to hide for days beneath beds, couches, and appliances, and frank disinterest in displays of physical affection except when it suits them. Okay, so I’m probably going to be alone for the rest of my life, but at least I’ll have cats, and these adorable gold Vermeil Cat Face Studs. I might as well have a sign on my face that says, “Don’t touch unless I’m purring.” [$32, Catbird]
