Vintage Catmopolitan Magazine Gives Real Ladymag A Run For Its Money

Sex, Drugs, and Fashion - So goes the 1987 issue of Catmopolitan Magazine, another hilarious parody by author Ilene Hochberg.

Much like the real Cosmopolitan, Catmo delves into topics such as getting your claws into Mr. Right, infidelity, weight loss, and shopping. Next to advertisements for brands such as Estée Longhair, Clawnique, Maidenfur, and Espurrit are articles on "Cathletics and Feline Fitness," "Colorful Collars To Catch His Eye," "The Cat's Out of the Bag - He's Been Pussyfooting Around," and more.

I scanned some of my favorite highlights from the mag below - If you missed my previous post on Vanity Fur (featuring Hissy Miyake and Purry Ellis!), you can check it out here.

"Paws To Catch Your Breath: Cathletics and Feline Fitness"

Stick-On Krazy Kat Klaws - A precursor to Soft Paws Nail Caps, perhaps?

Flea Jeans

Roundup - What Gives Me Pangs Of Guilt? Answer: "Nothing"

Cat diet product promises a slimmer physique caused by the rapid shedding of fur -"Get slim without dieting. Don't give up a single meal or treat. Don't even move a muscle."
