There are a lot of up-sides to being a parent: I never have to make my own toast in the morning, there’s always somebody I can send to do laundry, and some days, when I lack inspiration, I can get the child to help formulate the MS-QOTD.  Then, when I asked her today, she immediately gave me…  Cat Pants.

And then, I thought about it.

And then I thought about it again.

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) is actually torn on this particular question, asking: How would a cat wear Cat Pants: Figure 1 or Figure 2?

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.


  1. I would also have to side with figure 2. I feel like the pants of figure 1 would be more restrictive of natural feline moments. Pants version uno would probably be more entertaining to watch, but figure 2 is more practical…probably.

  2. While figure 2 is more visually appealing, figure 1 is more practical. When the cat needed to use the litter box, they would have a difficult time getting figure 2 off. Of course, if they got the pants on in the first place….
