    “Gilding the lily.” It’s like putting make-up on a baby. C’mon – cats are so cute, they don’t need wigs!

    We sell this at my work. As some employees were looking at it, I asked aloud, “Who makes cat-sized wigs?” Apparently at the back of the book is the web address of a company who designs them. So there.

    These people need some gay friends: the styling is absolutely horrendous.
    I guess they don’t have to be gay, but it couldn’t hurt.

    But… one of the very cutest thing about kitties is their perky, pointy ears! :(

    Yeah, but who did the music for the video? That is some total MegaMan 2: Flashman stage stuff goin’ on there!

      I know the exact moment of MegaMan2 Flashman’s theme you’re referring to. It corresponds to 0:31 in this video.

      Nice catch!

    Future historians can only speculate on what caused the Great Cat Revolution of 2010…

    Yeah. They really, really need a style consultant. These wigs are *so* mismatched to their fur, it’s like nails on a blackboard.

    But maybe that’s the point.

    im totally amazed how can a cat keep quite when it has a wig on it. It looks so funny but i still cant get to the thought of cats with wig…

    I saw the picture of the cat in the blue wig at the top of the page and I honestly thought it was for a review for Avatar.

      I saw the picture of the cat in the blue wig at the top of the page and I assumed it was just another Lady Gaga video.

    My cat would freak if I put a wig on her.

    There are several problems with this.
    For one, these are all synthetic wigs, which never make a cat look its best. Two, having a color consultant work with your cat is vital. The wrong color wig will just make your cat look cheap. And thirdly, proper fit is very important and often neglected. Have your cat’s wig slip or come off at a social event can be so humiliating.

    I think this is a horrible way to treat a cat, granted I love cats but I not putting them in stupid wigs or outfits.

    I saw the cat in the blue wig on the cover and assumed he was supposed to be Andy Warhol. It is, isn’t it?

    (Disclaimer: I don’t know who Lady Gaga is)

    This is a definite ‘pet peeve’ for me. I love dogs, well big dogs at least, and dog owners who dress up their dogs or treat them as their own kids (instead of having kids) makes my want to vomit in my mouth a little bit. Cats with wigs…I hate cats so this seems silly to me. Of course if we are talking about bobcats, purrrrr.

    Siamese cats are naturally elegant, cheetah-like, fast, sporty, intelligent, very attached, loving, but also strong and physically active animals. They are fast sprinters and very good climbers. It’s kind of sad to see them put up with glasses and wigs as child replacements.

    I once met a cougar with a wig – but that was entirely different.

    All of these cats remind me of Lady Gaga.

    @Dhalgren: “Cats with wigs…I hate cats so this seems silly to me.” I’m sure cats hate you too. Even more than they hate wearing stupid wigs.

    So what are you saying? That the other cats are butterfaces? Shame on you!

    I love all these cats. The concept is so ridiculous yet so well executed anyone who can’t laugh at this has cancer of the cute!
