Vintage Coats and Cute Kitty Cats...
The only thing I dislike about vintage coats and jackets is that the arms are always slightly too short, which is the case with this jacket. But I do love it! It’s made from a beautiful heavy wool in a dark blue with red stitch detailing, and a red lining. It also has a fantastic military-esque feel about it and fits like a glove (with the exception of the shorter sleeves which wearing long gloves fixes in an instant).
Funny story – our wee kitty Mocha has taken to sitting on David’s pillow in the morning (early in the morning, before David has to get up, which is early during the week) and cleaning his hair. She’s quite loud about it too and we are unsure as to why – is it because she knows David has to get up so is helping him by saving him some time in the morning and cleaning his hair herself? Is it because she now thinks of him as her little massive kitten David who needs taking care of? Is she doing it because she knows he has to get up and she wants him up earlier so she gets fed sooner?
No matter what the reason, it’s pretty darn cute, and one of these days I’ll get a photo!
Ps) My comment replying may take a while because our internet is going at a snails pace and doesn’t tick over again until the 20th!!
