Slippers Anyone? From Cool to Creepy!

Our Rocket Dog discussion on the Petsjubilee forum got me thinking about slippers! Here are a few interesting facts.

~Because of the foreign people being uneducated to the Japanese customs, they would enter the Japanese homes with shoes on their feet. For this reason, special slippers were designed for the foreigners to slip on over their shoes before entering the home, keeping the inside sanitary. They also have toilet slippers because the toilet area of a Japanese home is considered unsanitary.

~Pope Benedict XVI is known to wear slippers which are scarlet red in color. He wears them with white socks.

~Derek Fan, who is known as "The Slipper Man", has made his place in the Guinness Book Of World Records. He wore a pair of dress slippers for twenty-three consecutive years. The twenty-third year was met on June 30, 2007.

Fun and interesting slipper facts. I think Angel would love tearing up those last slippers! Anything furry/fuzzy she thinks is automatically hers and therefore has the right to chew it.

That little kitten in the slipper is soooo cute. The rats are really creepy.
