The Peacat


The extremely rare Peacat, sadly these shy beautiful creatures were very nearly hunted out of existence but some still survive. They became quite a talking point among the ideal rich in the 1920's. A few escaped from their gilded cages and are now reported to be living in secluded parts of the British Isles. In a way their rarity now works in their favour, the police are inclined these days to write off reports of cats dressed in peacock feathers as hoax calls.

  1. And there I was thinking it was a cat in drag... or a peacock in cat?

  2. I love the mental image of the cat being in drag.
