Evening Cat Wear

Making cute things for my cats, is something I enjoy and I hope the cats appreciate. I am certainly nutty about my cats and I am sure it shows.  I wanted my cats to be able to go out into the evening and be well dressed and I think that this bowtie does just that. 

It is made to be strung onto an existing collar. Simba (or any of my cats) has never been good at posing for photos so I used some computer trickery to give you an idea of what it will look like on a cat.
