Tiny cute knitted scarves for cats – Neko Mufflers – are the latest feline fashion trend for cat-owners who should already know their pets don't care to wear clothing.
Neko Mufflers stand a better chance of being accepted (OK, tolerated) by your cat because they feel a lot like collars. Their wearing position around the cat's neck also protects them from being easily gnawed by an annoyed kitty's choppers.
The scarves come from Col.Japan and are made from washable, non-toxic acrylic yarn. They feature a natty red & navy design in a bold yet slightly random interwoven pattern that appears sumptuous and handmade. The scarves are highlighted by an integral polished brass badge upon which your pet's vital ID info may be engraved, thus negating the need for a boring old run-of-the-mill collar.
Col.Japan offers Neko Mufflers in two sizes. Medium (21-25 cm or 8-10 inches) is recommended for cats from six months to 2 years of age while Large (26-30 cm or 10-12 inches) is ideal for cats two years old and older. Priced at 1,980 yen (about $17.60) each for either size and attractively gift-boxed, you can order your cat their very own hipster scarf at Amazon Japan. (via PR Times Japan)
