A suit of mane hair is the ultimate accessory, says the mane owner who says the item is his personal feline attraction.
“The only problem with the cat suit is it doesn’t last forever,” says owner Jason Cottle.
“I don’t want to lose it.
It’s one of the only things that I’m willing to sell.”
Cottle, who lives in New South Wales, is known for creating the “Coulomb” cat suit and sells it online at his site, The Cat Suit, as well as on Instagram and YouTube.
Collom says the suit, which he says cost about $2,000 to make, is made from an animal fur that has been stretched into a bunting and a special nylon webbing.
It has been described as “a mane-shaped fur hoodie”, and it features a hood that folds down, like a hooded coat, to hide the body.
In his video, Cottles owner explains how the coat, which was created using his own hair, has been a great success.
“[I’m] not even making money on it, but it’s a fantastic product,” he said.
However, Cuthlum says he doesn’t make money on the cat suits himself.
He says the cats are a valuable asset to the local community.
“I do have to pay the fees and taxes that go with these suits,” he says.
While he has seen a significant increase in cat suits, he doesn: find that cats in cat costumes are a “problem” for locals.
“There are a lot of people who don’t know cats and are not comfortable with them,” he adds.
The cat suit can cost as much as $800, but Cottls owner says he’s not worried about the high price tag.
“It’s a little bit expensive but I’ve always been very grateful for what I’ve got,” he added.
