Ridiculous... or awesome?

I'm sure those of you with cats or dogs probably already own three of these (or more), but for the rest of us.... these are totally new. Wigs for pets?

If you haven't seen these sites yet, you must. There's one for dogs and one for cats. They will both blow your mind. I'm not sure which is more hilarious - making your dog wear a Sarah Palin wig or making him wear a Bob Marley wig?



Both are clearly awesome. Or weird and cruel, I can't decide. The cat wigs are decidedly cooler though with options like Pink Passion or Electric Blue.

I don't own any pets, but I think pets in sweaters or costumes are adorable. Wigs, however, seem to be taking it a step too far in my opinion, although I could be wrong. Maybe for special occasions it would be ok. Like if your cat or dog were going on a first date and wanted to look his/her best. Or maybe if he/she was getting married or going to prom or the Oscars or something. I mean, there are exceptions to the rule. But for the everyday lounging, sniffing, chewing up furniture schedule of a cat or dog, wigs don't seem necessary. Awesome yes, Necessary, maybe not.

Now gerbils and hamsters on the other hand, they could definitely use wigs. Can you imagine a little hamster with a pink afro, or a blue ponytail? Adorable. Other animals might be able to pull it off too - ferrets come to mind. And maybe monkeys. Anyway, I'd like to hear what you think!

Oooh! I wonder if they have any for fish! I think monkey wigs would be the best, though!! Every time I go to a cat wedding I'm always embarassed by those cats who thought they were too good to wear wigs. They looked so silly!!

I think it's awesome for those people who have the time! I don't. Have you seen Snowy's and Rocky's friend list on myspace? There are a few on there!

Can you imagine going over to someone's house and all of a sudden their cat or dog walks out with one of those wigs on? I would die laughing.

Last year I tried to get my friend who has a cat name Lil Kim to buy the pink wig. She was into it, but never bought it. haha.

Oh my gosh Sara, that is hilarious! I just saw your comment and it cracked me up. I don't understand why she never bought it!? ;)
