August 28th is National Bow Tie Day! Maybe you look good in a bow tie, but no one can pull off this handsome look quite like our feline friends.

Dressing your cat up can be tricky business. Many cats aren’t too enthusiastic about being asked to wear a costume for their owner’s amusement. But slipping a bow tie around your cat’s collar can be a smart compromise between looking dapper and keeping your feline comfortable.

In celebration of National Bow Tie Day, here’s a salute to some very fancily-dressed Instagram cats.

After a long day strutting around in your bow tie, it’s perfectly acceptable to make like Mr. Bruce Miesy–who’s sporting a multi-colored plaid design from the House Of Harrie Hattie–and enjoy a well-earned nap.
