The well-dressed British Shorthair was in peak Shakespearean form.

— -- A well-accessorized cat rode the subway in Moscow for an unusual Shakespeare celebration that took place inside the Russian capital's public transportation system.

The British Shorthair was invited on board a subway car as part of the Moscow Metro's celebration honoring the 400th anniversary of William Shakespeare's death.

The cat was dressed in dapper fashion, modeled after the cat painted with the English writer in a famous portrait.

The subway ride the cat took, on the Arbatsko-Pokrovskaya Line, was part of the U.K.-Russia Year of Language and Literature program and Moscow's "Poetry on the Metro" project.
