I see your horned toads and raise you horned cats: Unicorn Cats! Call 'em “Unicats” for short but not for long, since none of the cute & comical felines featured here get a kick out having a horn of their own.



8) Leaning Meower of Pisa

Crafting a unicorn horn for a cat isn't as easy as pizza pie, and don't give me that “it ain't rocket science” stuff because this is a matter of great gravity - literally. Too light a horn will be fragile and floppy, too heavy a horn and Felis Galileo here can't keep his or her head held high. (Unicorn Cat image via Bridget85 at ETSY)   



7) Unicone Cat

Unicorn cat costumes are pretty simple: add one horn to one cat. Even so, Purrphy's Law states that when there's a cat involved, it's fairly likely things will go horribly wrong. Somewhere, the Cat in the Hat is doing a facepalm. (Unicorn Cat image via CHEEZburger Sites



6) Unfunny Bunny

I'd be lion if I said this unicat was happy but put yourself in its place: you finally get to be a unicorn and your owner goes and ruins it by adding a pair of bunny ears. On the bright side, when this cat sits on top of the TV the reception somehow gets better. (Unicorn Cat image via E-Cute



5) My Horn is Blue, Your Argument is Invalid

Doesn't this hefty kitty look a lot like Church, the undead cat from the film Pet Sematary? Church didn't have a horn, of course, he was creepy enough au natural. Logically speaking, this makes the unicorn cat above seem even more terrifying than an evil zombie cat. (Unicorn Cat image via ~Ponys-for-you)



4) Mess With The Cat, You Get The Horn

The nice folks at ThinkGeek call the above accessory an "Inflatable Evil Unicorn Horn for Cats" but let's be clear here: an evil unicorn horn does not an evil cat make. Check out the nattily tuxedo'd kitty above - that expression is pure surprise, nuthin' evil about it. Wouldn't you feel surprised if someone you trusted and loved suddenly strapped an inflatable unicorn horn to your head? (Unicorn Cat image via ThinkGeek)



3) Uni-Cow Cat

Kudos to ETSY crafts-person Xmoonbloom for creating the crocheted horn-hat modeled by the above sleepy cow-cat... no bull! The clever combo of stretchy cap and integrated horn helps keep things in place however much your skeptical pet objects to the situation. (Unicorn Cat image via Whose Roses Are Those)



2) Spiked Lumber (and Drinks)

Either this self-styled lumberjack cat has just cut down a massive conifer without the aid of actual tools he's sharpening up his sawtoothed spike for the next round... or maybe what we have here is a hungover Unicat employing the insulating properties of rotting wood to best effect.

1) This Horn Blows

Yeah, and so does your mom... wait, what'd I say? It's an inflatable horn, duh, and if your mom doesn't blow it up who will? Priced at under ten bucks, the Inflatable Unicorn Horn For Cats is (according to the seller) 5-1/2" long, made of vinyl, installs with a four-point elastic strap system and will “make your dreams come true.” Your dreams, your cat's nightmares. “Cats Love It”, huh? Fluffy begs to differ. 

It seems everyone wants a Unicorn Cat but the cats themselves, which is a shame because both unicorns and cats are totally awesome. Even Nyan Cat is improved by adding a horn, albeit a rainbow-colored one, and cats in general emanate a natural note of mystery that lends itself to association with mystical, mythic beasts. You don't see too many Unicorn Dogs around, now do you? Mmm, Unicorndogs... (Unicorn Cat images via The Keep Calm-O-Matic, top, and SuperSpecialAwesome7, above)
