(TMU) — If you’ve ever looked at your Sphynx cat and thought something along the lines of “this feline needs a tattoo sleeve,” then you’re in luck. The Etsy shop SimplySphynx, run by Airie McCreedy, has all the supplies you need to tat up your cat.
But before you contact PETA, no—Airie doesn’t condone actually tattooing cats. Rather, the Etsy shop owner creates and sells little tops that slide right over your cat’s torso. They make Sphynx cats look rough and tough—which is what cats are going for, yes?
“The idea came to me when a friend showed me a silly fake tattoo sleeve and teased me how I did not have to get ink, I could have gotten one of these (I have a lot of tattoos). I grabbed it from him and thought, ‘If only I knew how to sew…'”
Inspiration for the product didn’t fade, so Airie taught herself to sew. This wasn’t an easy feat considering the sheer fabric she uses to make the tops. But, she succeeded and now runs the successful online shop.
If you visit her Etsy store, you’ll find other cat-related items. From slings you can carry your kitty friend around in to plaid pajamas for the hairless feline, the options are seemingly endless.
Because Sphynx cats lack hair, all of the items are made using feline-friendly materials and ink. This is stress-relieving to pet owners who seek to source the best quality for their fur-less companion(s).
Of course, fluffy felines can also don tattoo sleeves.
After all, any cat can tat.
