Fashion is unapologetically obsessed with cats, and part of that obsession owes to United Bamboo's annual cat calendar. This year's calendar, which features some truly adorable felines, was photographed by Noah Sheldon and designed by Studio Lin.
The calendar retails for $50 and will go on sale on Oct. 1. Later in the month, the company plans to start a blog called Cat Club by United Bamboo, where fans of the calendar will be able to find out more about the four-legged friends featured here. A look at a few of them below.

The boys of 221B Baker Street aren't back for season three until Jan. 19, 2014, but at least we've got Lilly the cosplaying kitten to hold us over until Sherlock returns.

According to Lilly's humans, she fell asleep in the middle of the photo shoot. But this pretend socio-cat is no geek costume amateur. You may recognize her as the most purr-fect Ewok of all time.

In celebration of National Cat Day, take a look at the geekiest cats of pop culture.
Here's a collection of cat burglars that can't keep their paws off their furry companions' beds. And, once they've settled in for a cat nap, there's no getting these kitties out of their comfy spots.

Nevertheless, these kitties prove that you don't have to eat these Halloween gourds to like pumpkins!
