What? Cat Wigs?

I have a soft spot for cats. I love cats. I have two kitties now here in Florida and four other kitties back in Hawaii and Tokyo that my parents and sister are taking care of.

Over a month ago, I was reading People magazine when I found a cute and hilarious book review. It was called {GLAMOURPUSS} - a book about cats in wigs. A girl named Julie Jackson realized there are plenty people who dress up their dogs in tons of costumes, but she couldn't find none for her cats. So, she decided that she would created wigs for her kitties. Hilarious.

Julie summond her friend to take some photos and here is the book she just published. Aren't they adorable? She sells kittie wigs on her website Kitty Wigs. If you a cat lover, you should definitely check it out.

Model: Chicken in Electric Blue wig $50.00

Model: Shaft in Bashful Blond (Sold out)

Model: Chicken in Pink Passion kitty wig. $50.00

I honestly believe this Chicken is a natural super kitty model! Look at her face - I can't stop laughing. So cute.

All of her kitty wigs comes in a cute package just like this one with detail instruction. I have been telling my family that I'm thinking about getting these wigs to my kitties, they tell me don't be stupid. But I'm thinking about getting them and put them on my cats. Oh they will hate me for it.

I'm not that fond of cats so I have to say these quite creeped me out. But i thinks its hilarious too! Haha.

Katrina said...

These are hilarious!! I think the wig on the cover of the book is my fave. The blue lowlights really bring out the cat's eyes.

My neighbor has a beautiful Siamese with violet eyes. I can totally see her rocking one of these wigs.

Thanks for stopping by my blog! :)

Andy Tan: Oh, you're not a big fan... But wigs suit better on the cats than dogs! ha ha

Katrina: Siamese with violet eyes - I would love to see her with the wigs!

Jennifer said...

WOW those are hilarious and disturbing at the same time! I just cant imagine it! I guess perhaps thats why Im a dog person :)

Barefoot Chic said...

Jennifer: Yes, I think many people are creeped out by those cats. LOL

Julie said...

Thanks for your post about Kitty Wigs - I'm the creator. I couldn't have done it without my amazing photographer (furtographer) and friend, Jill Johnson. The funny thing about all this is, the kitties really love the attention!

You never know what will happen when you follow your dreams - I ended up with a book about Kitty Wigs. So keep dreaming - go go go!

I'd love to put one of those on my cats, but I think I'd just get scratched for my trouble...

Kristin said...

OMG, my cats would freak if I tried that out on them. Ah ha ha. So funny!

Barefoot Chic said...

Jdaneil4's Mom: I know, they are true models! Meow~:)

The Blond Duck: Yes, they look like those super model posing for Victoria's Secret, right?

Amber Page Writes: I know I'd probably get scratch too! LOL

Kristin: I just want to see if my cats would stay for it - I just want to see them in it! :)
