You Can Now Buy a Tattoo Sleeve for Your Cat

(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 Tattcat tops are available in several designs and styles. Each is priced from £16.18. Airie told Metro

“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.

While you’re here…
…We have a tiny favor to ask of you. Government think tanks have teamed up with social media companies and Google to censor independent media websites and government criticism. Despite this big tech crackdown on the free press, we have been very fortunate, and tens of thousands of people continue to read The Mind Unleashed every single day. But we need your ongoing support to keep working as we do.. And because we value open and accessible information for all, we would never hide our content behind a paywall. Unlike Fox News or CNN, our editorial independence means we set our own agenda and voice our own opinions. We are not subject to the whims of billionaire shareholders. We are editorially independent, and that makes websites like this an important part in the war for truth and justice. Hopefully we’re wrong, but without your help, we're afraid big tech companies may soon make The Mind Unleashed algorithmically disappear from the Internet. We need your support to keep delivering quality independent news. Every contribution, big or small, will go directly into funding independent journalism. Thank you. Click here to support us
