Felines Go Famous For Wearing Hats Made of their Own Fur
The story of The Cat in The Hat might need a new sequel now that this couple has begun creating caps made from cat fur.
Photographer Ryo Yamazaki and his wife were brushing their three gorgeous kitties and all the fur on the floor sparked an idea. What if the clumps of shed fur could be made into a hat worthy of Versace?
So, they used a felting technique and made the first of what have come to be known as Nukege hats. Nukege is the Japanese word for shed fur or hair. They’ve made hats with rabbit ears, a crown shaped hat…even a baseball cap.
Ryo shares adorable pics of the ‘the cats in the hats’ on his Instagram feed, called Rojiman. You can tell from their calm demeanor, the cats don’t mind wearing these quirky lids, which are lightweight—and because they’re made from hair, have a familiar smell.
