The cat, covered in dust and standing on its hind legs, bowed to Margarita. Round its neck it was now wearing a white bow tie on an elastic band, with a pair of ladies' mother-of-pearl opera glasses hanging on a cord. It had also gilded its whiskers.

"What have you done?" exclaimed Woland. "Why have you gilded your whiskers? And what on earth do you want with a white tie when you haven't even got any trousers?"

"Trousers don't suit cats, sire," replied the cat with great dignity. "Why don't you tell me to wear boots? Cats always wear boots in fairy tales. But have you ever seen a cat going to a ball without a tie? I don't want to make myself look ridiculous. One likes to look as smart as one can. And that also applies to my opera glasses, sire."

"But your whiskers?"

"Azazello and Koroviev are allowed to cover themselves in powder," the cat objected coldly, "and I don't see why powder is better than gilt. I only powdered my whiskers, that's all. It would be a different matter if I'd shaved myself! A clean shaven cat is something monstrous, that I agree. But I see ..."—here the cat's voice trembled with pique—"... that this is a conspiracy to be rude about my appearance. Clearly I am faced with a problem—shall I go to the ball or not? What do you say, sire?'

—from The Master and Margarita, by Mikhail Bulgakov
