Unitasker Wednesday: Cat wigs

Cat WigI should be able to post a photo of a cat in a wig and nothing else … but it’s too much fun not to elaborate on this ridiculous product for a bit.

Cats and dogs aren’t people. They are domesticated animals, and I’m fairly certain they couldn’t care less about how they look. The purchase of a wig for an animal has little to do with the cat and everything to do with the owner. The wig is obviously entertainment for the owner and the poor cat has to put up with wearing a wig until the perfect picture is snapped. After that picture is snapped, the wig instantly becomes clutter. I have cats, and I cannot imagine them putting up with this nonsense for more than a few minutes. My suggested alternative: Skip the whole process and just learn how to photoshop your favorite celebrities’ hairdo onto your feline friend.

The one pictured on the right would have to be Cher, right? Check out more cat wigs at Kitty Wigs.

    What weird owners. ..I agree, wigs just add more clutter.

    As a cat owner who has actually considered buying a cat wig (yeah I know, crazy) I agree that the price is insane and that it would become clutter after the photo shoot. Here are my ideas:

    1) Buy a doll wig instead, they should be roughly the same size and probably much cheaper.

    2) Create a wig swap program, where interested cat owners can trade their wigs to other cat owners and eventually just give them away once the photos have been taken.

    3) Call the SPCA on myself.

    Want to be totally creeped out whilst we’re on the topic of wigs?…. Baby Wigs…


    We don’t need to preach though, the whithering looks the cats give their owners is enough to burn a hole in their souls without us wading in too 🙂

    This would drive my cat nuts! I can’t imagine any animal wearing this thing for long.

    My dog has two items of clothing:

    1. Collar, useful because it carries name, address, phone number, and rabies information

    2. Backpack, rarely used, but it was helpful when she was a puppy. Fill the sides with water, wears her out a lot faster than walking alone. See Cesar Millan. Now that I think about it, I could probably sell the backpack…

    This is a great unitasker! I’m glad to see it’s not a kitchen item this week.

    Dave Bullock, my daughter has a build-a-bear from a birthday party she attended, and this bear happens to be about the same size as our dog. So now we have a picture of the dog in a Rockies cap and sunglasses.

    These cat wigs are awesomely awful, but baby wigs are beyond disturbing.

    Normally I completely agree with unitasker wednesday, however you’ve got this one all wrong!

    I have 47 cats and I gave each one of them one of these wigs. They absolutely love them and are adorable! Every one likes them so much I can’t believe you would put them here on unitasker wednesday! [pout]

    …Aha ha ha ha! Someone had to do it. There’s at least one of these every wednesday anyways.

    Maybe if your cat had kemo therapy done this would have some use?

    I know this is late, but I can’t resist (nor believe nobody else jumped on it)
    If you don’t want to clutter your house with a cat wig, you could always just use a lime
