This Inflatable Unicorn Horn For Cats, it vibrates?

I will get you for this.

Oh yes I will.

If you want to sell it, you should probably choose a less "I swear to God if you press send you are dead buddy" cat to promote it.

However, this will not prevent me from pleading with Shepherd to get one for our youngest cat.

Reminds me of that thing where if you die in your apartment, your cat will eat your face.

Oh course, an inflatable narwhal tusk might interfere with that.

I like to think the extra several days for processing involve rainbow and magic dust application.

One of these days the cats are going to make us pay for this.

It will probably involve poop.

Way to ask for getting one's throat slit in the middle of the night!

I desperately need these for my cats. Then I will let them go outside.

Hmm. Do the horns come with little video cameras in them? Marketing opportunity!

I'm fully confident that our cats would love this!

And, relatedly, the comments are great:

A mysterious cloaked figure seems to be flying around, trying to chase my cat and drink its blood, presumably to maintain a tenuous hold on physical existence. I want to take this opportunity to remind this figure that slaying a cat wearing a unicorn horn is a monstrous thing.The blood of a cat wearing an inflatable unicorn horn will keep you alive, even if you are an inch from death, but at a terrible price.


Or:

I thought it would be fun if my cat looked like a magical unicorn of medieval lore. Not so fun is that he has taken this unicorn mythology a bit too seriously around my girlfriend. Lately, whenever she approaches or tries to pet him, he darts off wildly in a rage. "Only a maiden pure may tame the unicorn!" he says. Jackass.


Or:

I can't wait for him to take his catnicorn horn and mount his majestic roomba steed to joust the dog in the ultimate battle for the living room.

Mr. Whiskers gives this catnicorn horn two polydactyl thumbs up!



I never am creative enough to think up clever reviews, though.

No one noticed the cat tank shown as a related item? I like that even better.

I know the model. Her name is Spyke, and she purrs more and louder than any cat I have ever met. She also kind of drools, so when she's purring she occasionally makes this super loud purr-slurp noise.

Last time we were visiting, she tried to sleep on Mr. Mustachio's face.

Spyke's mom is the model for The CrazyCat Lady Game. (They have a normal amount of cats, but her boyfriend is a metal dude, and you know about metal dudes and their cats.)

Ooh, thanks for inspiring my Halloween costume. Pissed-off unicorn cat.

I feel like this entire situation occurred via a series of whimsical mishaps when an innocent cat fancier bid sight unseen on a shipping container full of factory reject/mislabeled adult toys.

"Cats love it!"

I am a lawyer, and I can say with certainty that based on the picture, this is blatantly false advertising.

okay technically it falls within the vague "puffery" exception

(Spyke probably did love it, because ATTENTION ATTENTION ATTENTION. But Spyke is not a representative of all cats. She's a special cat.)

I hope y'all have browsed through the customer image gallery. It is truly magical.

that cat should be the dictionary illustration for "nonplussed"

I broke down and bought one of the meme-tastic Magical Unicorn latex masks to be used as part of my H'ween costume. That's right - I said part. The other part may or may not invoke 1930's Germany.

A plastic horn for your pussy? That's some pretty tenuous "plausible deniability" for your sex toy purchases.

Thank god I signed up for that Amazon Prime membership.

I've always wanted a pet narwhal but have neither the time, money nor pool-space to keep one as a pet, all I have is this lousy tabby cat. Then, through some sort of cosmic synchronicity, I happened upon this product and knew what had to be done.

I found the strap, to hold the horn to the cats head, a little flimsy. Luckily I found an open minded veterinarian who was willing to attempt grafting the horn to the cat. The procedure was expensive, more than I expected to pay for a cat-narwhal conversion, but I don't blame amazon or the manufacturer for any of that seeing as I went behind the scope of this products intended purposes.


Someone's getting poop in his shoe every day!

Yeah, that cat looks appropriately unhappy...

I am staying with a friend who has the world's most cranky, depressed, emo, hates-the-world cat. I really want to see her attempt to put this on that cat.

The intersection of the weird and wonderful of the Internet - smart-ass Amazon reviews, silly things to do with pets, online shopping, unicorns, and cats.
