Battersea Cat Visits Royal Wedding Milliner

Share with fellow dog lovers!


As Anglophiles anxiously wait to catch glimpses of the glamorous wardrobe worn at Prince William and Kate Middleton’s upcoming nuptials, one feline follower of fashion has already enjoyed a preview of the chapeaux that will crown the coifs of the royal wedding party, and found a place to hang his hat in the process.

Found trapped inside a cat box near the offices of high profile hat maker Philip Treacy, Production Manager Jutta Friedlander proved that compassion is always in fashion when she brought Bogart into the Treacy workplace, where a team currently creating hats that will appear on heads heading to Westminster Abbey for the royal I do’s lavished cuddles and care on the abandoned cat as he milled around the milliner’s workplace.

Brought to Battersea Dogs & Cats Home by Friedlander, Bogart found a temporary home in the shelter’s Cattery, which was opened by Camilla, The Duchess of Cornwall in October 2010. Following a seven day wait to see if Bogart would be claimed, Friedlander returned to officially adopt the style-conscious cat, who will curl up in front of the television set on April 29th with his new pet parent and barking brother Dargo (a Rottweiler) to see the wedding hats made by his friends at Philip Treacy.
