Putting a cat hat on a cat.
There’s something about cats that makes feline fans want to own more than one. Maybe it’s because they’re relatively quiet and independent most of the time, or because their capricious personalities mean that a kitty might not be in the mood to play at any single moment, and so it’s nice to have another source of animal companionship.
But just because you want a second cat doesn’t mean you can have one, though. Aside from space and budget constraints, cats, like any pets, need a certain level of care, and so one cat may be all you can handle. You can still double the feline fun, though, with these new cat cosplay items from Japanese manufacturer Necos.
This April Necos’ Colorful Cat Fluffy Cat Ears series will turn your cat into…another cat.
▼ The seemingly redundant naming of Colorful Cat Fluffy Cat Ears makes a certain sort of sense since there are two pairs of cat ears present.
In keeping with the fancy atmosphere, many of the hoods have regal or playful-sounding official color names, such as “lemon yellow,” “scarlet,” and “violet,” though apparently “pink,” “white,” and “black” are good enough for the rest of the set.
But even though half the set gets high-class color names, you won’t be able to select the hue you want, since the Colorful Cat Fluffy Cat Ears are offered on a random basis, and you won’t know which you’ve gotten until after you open the box.
At just 500 yen (US$4.70) each, though, it shouldn’t hurt your wallet too badly to splurge on more than one, and if you are lucky enough to share your home with multiple cats, you’ll want to pick up a couple different hoods anyway.
