Exotic Pets – for love or for show?

Savannah Breed Cat vs Common Barn Cat

…we would have never wanted  to make a show out of their life, or to tell how much they cost because they were family members, not things to buy and sell. (Helene, about her cats)

A cat that costs 8000 dollars? Would you like one? Insane, you would say, though still the thought might stay somewhere deep in your mind and  come out from time to time. A cat that costs 8000 dollars. Hmm, and what kind of animal it shall be? With golden fur and diamond eyes? If you are interested, just have a look at this scenario (the link to the original video is below).

Nice peaceful animal, looks like a properly-cared for pet. And beside this beautiful animal there is a beautiful woman, dressed in expensive clothes, with a proper make-up and hair style. But the most surprising thing is that this lady is wearing sheer tights! And the cat even doesn’t try to tear them! Actually, little bit strange for a proper cat, isn’t it? Immediately like a flash, a memory from my childhood. A small and a very sweet kitten is playing in the grass, I come up to this wonderful creature and he immediately climbs up my leg instead of a tree. Doesn’t matter that it is summer actually and I even do not wear tights or trousers.  My leg seems to be quite good for his sharp nails. He is extremely happy, and I have some red bleeding scratches. If I was wearing tights, like this lady with her cat, I sure would be much more disappointed, as this would add to my injury also money loss.

I would not say so, this is just a normal experience of a normal child who loved this crazy small creature even though this kitten didn’t cost 8000 dollars. Actually, he didn’t cost any money, but surely he was more valuable than any treasure in the world. Valuable, because his mother was the favourite cat of the family, who was able to catch mice and play with kids, who always came to give a hug when her master was feeling not good, who wasn’t afraid to fight with other cats when they were coming to her yard. And we would have never wanted  to make a show out of their life, or to tell how much they cost  because they were family members, not things to buy and sell. They were not for creating the image, but for life. They were fighters and would never accept eating artificial food in front of camera just because their master wants to show how she cares. They were real.
So, dear pretty lady, properly dressed, with cared face and in thin tights, would you like to be shown like in a zoo? Or would you like that somebody feeds you in front of camera for a show, even though it is your favourite food? Or maybe somebody shall tell how cheap or expensive you are? Put yourself in place of the cat which you love so much. Do you love it as a family member or as an expensive thing? This is the question.

Eastern Europe: Pantyhose As a Sign of Financial Prosperity

January 17, 2013 under Travel

As you can learn from the history of hosiery, it was always regarded as something of higher class because simple peasants in villages could not afford it and only the wealthy would wear it.

In Eastern Europe this still holds true.  Here are some references for your interest from a variety of Eastern-European sources where women equate pantyhose with money.  Pantyhose as a sign of Financial Prosperity!

Russian Deputy, Nina Ostanina, as a response to accusations of blackmail, makes a statement to show that she has enough money in order not to engage in criminal activities:

“I have enough money to buy myself a skirt and a pair of pantyhose!” – Nina Ostanina, Russian Deputy

Nina Ostanina at a talent show and a nice blond host in pantyhose ГђВќГђВёГђВЅГђ° ОстÐ°Р“ђВЅГђВёГђВЅГђ°, ГђВєГђВѕГђ»Р“ђВіГђВѕГ‘‚ки

Nina Ostanina is a mature lady on the left in a black knee high dress. At this concert the blond host is wearing pantyhose, but Nina isn’t from what it looks. Could it be in fact true that this poor deputy engages in blackmail because she doesn’t have enough money for pantyhose and a skirt?

Svetlana Hodchenkova, a Russian actress, came to a fashion show in a strange outfit, according to a Ukrainian 7 Day Newspaper.  Despite the cold weather, she was wearing a fur coat and sandals worn on bare legs and the media was quick to issue a mocking headline to address such nonsense.

Is Svetlana Hodchenkova saving money on pantyhose? Newspaper Headline, mocking her bare leg appearance

But it looks like she changed her mind when it came to getting attention of the opposite sex.  Smart move, Svetlana!

Natalya Tolstaya, a Russian psychologist/sexologist/writer, gives as an example of a greedy husband, saying that a woman should not beg her husband for some money to buy pantyhose.  She mentions all sorts of pantyhose scenarios in her videos. If requests are received, I’d be glad to retrieve them for you.

According to Natalya Tolstaya, the ultimate example of having a greedy husband is having to beg him for some money to buy pantyhose.

Natalya Tolstaya is the lady in the middle. Do you think that this hosiery clad trio has generous enough husbands who give them money for pantyhose?

 

Would you like to imagine what people would think if a woman would come with bare legs to a business meeting?  I hope you read this article with a sense of humour, but keep in mind that in every joke there is a part of truth.

 

*Thank you to my Ukrainian and Russian friends who helped me to put together this article – Pantyhose As a Sign of Financial Prosperity.*
