PostApril is Reptile, Rodent Month on CAIS (John Eipper, USA, 04/01/18 3:37 am)
Since its launch in 1965, CAIS (Cute Animals in Socks) has been the premier publication for those seeking the best trends in socks and hosiery for our furry friends. Public response has been overwhelming, with some besocked celebrities like Tessa (below) becoming Internet icons.

Adrian's Malgorzata (Goska) excels as the CAIS Director of Content. Our strong brand in the dog and cat fields is largely the result of her creative vision.

Yet--and in CAISworld, when is there not a "yet"?--the CAIS team has experienced increasing pushback about the canine- and feline-centricity of our coverage. Readers, we've heard your concerns, and with a nod to inclusiveness and to redress the injustice of the last 53 years, we dedicate the month of April to reptiles and rodents. In socks.

JE comments: CAIS content (see www.caisworld.org) is updated frequently, so check back as much as you can. Forthcoming cute galleries will feature socked rats, newts, an iguana or two, and the latest Brazilian supermodel sensation, the capybara. Just be sure to visit CAISworld.org before the end of April 1st, as tomorrow we must redirect our attention to more mundane topics: national identity, Putin the Meanie, Trump the Meanie, Brexit, God, and the ungodly ugliness of Euro banknotes.
CAIS thanks its sponsors Brittney Deater and David A Westbrook for today's stunning images. Paws et sox.
Six Cats in Jackets
(Eugenio Battaglia, Italy

My six house cats have been delighted to see the latest trends in animal socks (see CAIS News, April 1st), but they would like to see some jackets, too.
As soon as they make up their minds (they are very picky), I will send an order. However, they wonder if the winter styles will come out in Angora fabric.
We have also a colony of semi-wild cats, and they most probably will opt for less pricey items.
JE comments: But Eugenio, how would you pronounce CAIJ (Cute Animals in...Jackets)?
Next, we hear from the Marquis de Carabas--neither a good man, nor a brave man, but certainly a fine dresser.
