1. What is Plush Cat Club?
Plush Cat Club is a "social club" where plush-size fashion designers, models and women can connect to have parties, shows, and more! We're a unique organization that does events, "informal" modeling, and especially photography!

2. What do you do?
We do A LOT! Events, fashion shows, model auditions, model portfolio photo shoots, parties, designer photos shoots, calendars, and overall promoting the plush-size community!

3. Are you an agency?
Plush Cat Club is not an "agency". We are an unique concept of a "social club" that connects the plush-size community at a grass-roots level. We bring opportunities, helpful tips and advice through "informal modelling" to the average plush-size woman. We're more of a stepping board into the professional plus-size model world.

4. Are you a dance club?
Plush Cat Club is NOT a dance club, but we try to have events at plus-size dance clubs in the Southern California area (and maybe soon in other states). Some of the clubs we have been to are: Club Bounce, Club OCC, Club Moxie, Club Venus, and Butterfly Lounge.

5. How do I become a model for Plush Cat Club?

6. What type of modeling is Plush Cat Club?
Plush Cat Club does "specialty" (aka "informal") modeling. "Specialty" models work for recognition, clothing credit and/or (sometimes) cash. It is a way to bring plush-size designers, models and women closer together. While the "formal", or "professional", plus-size modeling world is still very strict on the size, shape and especially height of a plus-size model, we believe that every woman has the potential to look and feel her best!

7. What do you look for in a model?
We look for good potential in all women. For our Calendar, we try to have a wide range of different looks and sizes to better represent the plush-size community. For other model auditions, it all really depends on the fashion designer and what "look" they are going for.

8. Can I be a model?
To work as a model in the "industry", you would need to go to professional modeling agencies. However, you must understand that the plus-size model industry is still very strict with the size and shape of their models. Plush Cat Club believes that every plush-size woman has the potential to look like a "model". With attention to details such as makeup, hair, clothes, location, lighting, angle, posing and many more, Plush Cat Club can take the average woman and transform her into a beautiful, confident plush woman! So take a chance and enter our 4th Annual Model Hunt starting in June, 2006!

9. Will you take a look at my pics?
We are willing to take a look at your pics and give some advice to you if you are looking to be a "professional" model, but we are not as strict about "size, shape or height" as the "professional" plus-size model industry. Since Plush Cat Club is mainly for "specialty" modelling, we know that each woman can be a Plush Cat Model, no matter what your pics look like. "Specialty" (or sometimes known as "informal") modelling is all about bringing the confidence out and showing a positive attitude about being who we are! We try and choose different models and give new women a chance to look and feel confident about themselves. So take a chance and enter our 4th Annual Model Hunt starting in June, 2006!

10. What is a Plush Cat?
A Plush Cat is a plush-size woman who has been picked to be in a Plush Cat Pin-Ups Calendar! And once you are a Plush Cat, you're always a Plush Cat!
Note: Plush Cat Models picked for one year are NOT eligible to enter the Model Hunt for the next year. Plush Kittens who want to be considered in the next year's model hunt ARE eligible to do so.

To become a Plush Cat, you need to Sign Up for our Model Hunt and be a Plush Kitten first! Then, we choose 20 finalist who receive a FREE makeover photo shoot!
The 20 finalists vote on the 12 who will be in the Calendar!
If you are picked to be one of 12 models for the Plush Cat Pin-Ups Calendar, then you become a Plush Cat! And once you are a Plush Cat, you're always a Plush Cat!
Note: Plush Cat Models picked for one year are NOT eligible to enter the Model Hunt for the next year. Plush Kittens who want to be considered in the next year's model hunt ARE eligible to do so.

12. What is a Plush Kitten?
A Plush Kitten is a plush-size woman who has entered any Plush Cat Club Model Hunt! Once a Plush Kitten, always a Plush Kitten! This means you are still eligible to model for fashion designers and participate in Plush Cat Shows. However, if you want to be considered for the calendar another year, then you need to re-enter the Model Hunt.
