Over the Counter # 5

Catching my eye this week as it passed under my scanner and over my library counter was:

Glamourpuss: The Enchanting World of Kitty Wigs.

Yep, you read that correctly - kitty wigs. The book is captioned photos of cats wearing wigs....

From the publisher Chronicle Books:

"Glamourpuss -- According to, we have officially reached "totally new levels of redonkulessness." The Kitty Wig craze—sprung from the feverish imagination of Julie Jackson and her purring partner in crime—has swept the globe. Glamourpuss presents 60 stylish portraits showcasing furry models in the most fetching custom-made cat wigs ever created. The chic felines in this delightfully odd book answer the age-old question: what on earth do cats do all day? Make no bones about it—these utterly fashionable minxes are the hottest pet trend since cats in hats!"

Need to know more? Want a kitty wig for your pampered puss? Check out the author Julie Jackson's website. Photos by Jill Johnson.

(Over the Counter is a new feature at A Bookworm's World. I've sadly come the realization that I cannot physically read every book that catches my interest as it crosses over my counter at the library. But... I can mention them and maybe one of them will catch your eye as well!)

I've seen this somewhere and really wondered why someone felt the need to put wigs on cats.

Talk about ridiculous! With all the need in this world for basics like food and shelter, people would spend money on a wig for a cat. Want to buy a wig? Try buying one for a needy cancer patient. Money better spent.

I'll admit it, I'm officially disturbed. :-S

Kaye~ I couldn't have said it better myself!
