Cats in Ties! Make your cat a Tiecat too.

08 Oct

Just more proof that cats officially own all humans and also the internets.  Have you seen this tumblog about cats wearing ties?  It’s pretty much one of the most adorable things ever.

I’d love to dress up Otoro like Wei-ling has been demonstrating her her extremely patient kitties with their hats and being breaded.  However, Otoro is somewhat less tolerant and I enjoy actually have a face, so the full on costume is out of the question.  My answer?  Catis in ties! Have you seen this tumblog? 

Many cats who wouldn’t let you dress them up are already accustomed to wearing one article of clothing – their collars.  So it’s easier to dress them up a little bit with simple collar decorations.  The first time around, I made a dress shirt collar tube/sleeve I could slide over his collar and a small tie out of pin striped fabric.

It was OK, but the edges didn’t hold their shape very well. And the dress collar kept getting turned around.

Next I cut out collar, tie, and bow tie shapes out of felt, and included small tabs to sew onto the back side so I could slide them onto his collar. I did this freehand, the shapes are not too complicated.

The collar wasn’t the best, but the tie and bow tie were much better now!

And there you have it!  A well dressed kitty who won’t be too upset about putting on the fancy wear. 🙂  Enjoy!  Hope you share your pictures of your well dressed kitties too!
