"If you have any creature in the house with a head bigger than a walnut (including boyfriends), you need a Kitty Wig™."

I wonder if they're just porcelain doll wigs. If so, I bet they make porcelain doll Afros, which is what my cat requires.

Ah, yes. Saw these funny things yesterday. I wouldn't mind having an animal that has pink hair like me.

And they're brought to you by the same people who've brought you Subersive Cross Stitch.

For some reason this reminds me that Jerry Falwell supposedly started the Moral Majority after seeing a photo of Debra Winger kissing her dog.

Forget about euthanizing pets, can we start putting some of the owners down?

You know, that made me laugh, but there's no way in hell a cat is going to let you put a wig on its head for more than 2 seconds ... unless you're willing to bleed.

Whoops. 'Subversive.'

If I tried this on Victoria or Disraeli (er, my cats, not the historical figures), I'd expect to find myself out on the street in no time flat. There's only so much the human servant can get away with.

Between these and SoftPaws, my army of feline drag queens is nearly ready to march. I'm just looking for a really good portable karaoke machine that can be armed with a laser sight.

Sadly, only a creature with a head smaller than a walnut would buy those.

Uh, no. My dog would not be open to wearing a kitty wig. Not to mention that they didn't have her color... she's a natural redhead. (Yes, yes, carpet and drapes.)

I've got one cat who probably wouldn't mind this much. He's the one who lets me dance with him and put underwear on his head (sometimes at the same time). The other one, though, would probably eat the wig, if I could get her to sit still long enough to put it on.

I do like the copy on the description pages, though:
Blonde sets off your kitty’s eyes and makes your kitty look tan.

But where do their ears go?

You have GOT to be kidding me.

I was really hoping they had a red bob wig so I could make my chihuahua Maude look like her namesake, Maude Lebowski. I was also hoping it'd cost less than twenty bucks. Sadly, I was let down on both counts.

(But I did discover that my dog is on the first page of image search results for Maude Lebowski. Rock!)

Presumably, they're so furious that their ears are stuck in the "laid back" position, tucked neatly under the wig.

I was going to make a crack about genetically-engineered pet monstrosities, but then I remembered the "teacup poodle" store in my neighborhood.

People are weird, and sometimes I think people with pets may be stranger than most.

Bashful Blonde Kitty Wig™
$50.00


I think one day my moral compass is going to snap too, and I'm going to start selling useless crap to people foolish enough to buy it for way too much money. Might as well be on the winning side of consumerism.

Blue wigs really DO make anyone sexy. I'm so screwed now.

Awesome; drag kitties.

I wanna get one just so my wife's fat little girl cat can finally live up to her namesake: All Purpose Cultural Cat Girl Nuku Nuku.

Looks around ... Looks in mirror ...

Nope.

Does every wig come with a complimentary set of falconer's gloves?

Because that's what it would take to get one of these on my cat.
