If the internet can agree on one thing it’s this: Cats love their cheeseburgers. Ever since the dawn of the first internet cheeseburger cat meme on Icanhascheezburger.com, cats everywhere have been asking for cheeseburgers in record numbers!
It’s about time that Notso Kitty paid homage to the “cats who love cheeseburgers” craze with a brand new Cheeseburger Cat Hat! What took me so long to think of this? Perhaps since I have been a vegetarian for the past 15 years, cheeseburgers are not at the front of my brain….. But clearly they should have been!
I began construction on the Cheeseburger Cat Hat this Saturday by identifying how I would make the individual parts. I decided to make the bun, lettuce and cheese out of felt. The burger patty, tomato, and onion slices would all be made out of hand-painted glittered-styrofoam. I got to work cutting out the pieces and painting the parts— by the end of the day I had the individual components completed (save for drying time).
I decided to put my cheeseburger on a blue glittery plate— a true blue plate special. I constructed the base to be able to sit upon a cat’s head with felt lining and a bit of elastic.
Construction was complete when I topped it off with the “sesame seed” (rhinestone) bun.
The next step was getting this puppy on a cat. Fluff was available for modeling duties this morning (lucky him!) so he got to do the honors. He didn’t mind this hat too much— he actually liked how easy it was to swat off his own head 🙂 After a few minutes of his patience I had captured these fantastic shots of him in the Cheeseburger Cat Hat.
Yes Fluffy! You CAN HAS A CHEEZBURGER! 🙂 Now your cat can too courtesy of the Notso Kitty Shop!
