BEST SHOP CAT (2006)
Vincent Mona Lucero 2544 15th St.
In the confines of this oh-so-au-courant boutique, nobody is hipper than Vincent, the gray-and-white feline who bounds to the door to greet visitors, appraise their footwear and, occasionally, escort them to the counter to peruse the shop's fresh and stylish clothing, jewelry, cards and accessories. Owner Mona Lucero may have her own line of separates and handbags, but this is Vincent's world: He even gets fan mail and doles out advice on the shop's website, www.monalucero.com.
