Calling all cat ladies! Kitties are having a fashion moment.

Feline-inspired motifs showed up in Stella McCartney's pre-fall collection, on the fall 2016 runways at Chanel and Loewe, at Gucci's 2017 resort show and, most recently, on Giambattista Valli's spring 2017, er, catwalk.

As if on cue, the Cats musical returned to Broadway in August. And then there is social media’s kitty wonderland. Taylor Swift, Dita Von Teese and Katy Perry like to pose with their furry friends on Instagram — @aleistervonteese has his own dedicated page. Of course, few can rival the grimace of Grumpy Cat (@realgrumpycat), the 3.2 million followers of Nala (@nala_cat), or the pampered life of Karl Lagerfeld’s five-year-old pussy, Choupette (@choupettesdiary) who boasts a Shu Uemera makeup collection, a fashion line, a book and made headlines as the proud owner of one of Dyson’s new $399 Supersonic hairdryers that her two dedicated maids now use to tame her mane. Talk about the cat's meow.
