  1. Theses are really cute. Don’t know how practical but they did make me laugh and just might make a few for my cat loving friends! Thanks!

  2. I made one of your crowns just the right size for my cat and for a few of my friends. Cats hate to be dressed though. Look at those precious little faces and how upset they are.
