Blatant Video Theft Corner: Cats in Wigs!

View more news videos at:

Normally when I post videos that originate in the great state of Texas, they are the type that are more likely to evoke a "YEE-HAW" response than a "WTF?" Not today. I give you cats in wigs.

I was surprised to even discover that there was a cat wig industry let alone enough of a following to support a photography book filled with cats in wigs. This is apparently so big that a photojournalist quit her job to just take shots of cats in wigs and make this book.

I guess people just like sexy cats. Who wants to look at some boring old regular cat with no sexy hair-do? Not the good folks of northern Texas.

It's important to note that the cats in the video do not look like they are having a good time. Shaft, the rescued cat from Ft. Worth, clearly does not like wearing sunglasses and I'm thinking that he wasn't enjoying the wig either. I really did like him with the long blonde wig and the little red cowboy hat. He looks like a Lonestar State stripper in that outfit.

It's also important to note that they people in the video refer to the cat owners as "moms." If I am ever referred to as a "cat dad" you have my permission to just put me out of my misery. At that point it probably couldn't get much worse for me.

I also feel as though I should point out that this new practice is heading down a very messy road. Those cats in the wigs look a little too Japanese hentai for me. It starts here but soon we have cat wig pin-up shoots and even sexier cat photos. Then we move on to weird cat people porn and who knows where else. That's not a world I want to raise children in.

I say all of this knowing all to well that I am a hypocrite. Why? Because I have no problem with this whatsoever.


  1. All the weird cat stuff aside, I thought that news segment was horrible. The editing, the reporting. Boooooooo boooooooo!

  2. those cats were wigging OUT........
