Fancy dress hats for cats

Pet owners can now turn their cat into the king of the jungle - by giving it a hat with a lion's mane.

The hand-made lion hats come in a variety of colours and can be bought in golden brown, black, grey, ivory and husky.

Designer Yumiko Landers, from Seattle, Washington, explained how she came up with the idea to create the hats for cats.

The 39-year-old said: "Every cat we've ever known believes they're the master of their domain.

"So I thought there's no better way to represent that by making them look like a true lion.

"The idea of hats for cats came from my sewing group and the theme of the week was cats and dogs.

"I couldn't have guessed the product would be so popular. We continue to receive orders from all over the world."

The hats can be bought online from Etsy, a website that sells handmade or vintage items as well as art and craft supplies.
