Cat in the Hat: The 17 Best Etsy Cat Hats

Oh, Etsy, you never-ending source of joy.

Today we bring you the very best of cats in hats on Etsy. Yes, you can actually purchase these hand-made items. And if you can get your pet to wear them, good on ya.

I wish I could get my cats to wear a hat. I would buy all 17 of these hats and pee myself laughing all day. But, sadly, my cats are unwilling to work the Etsy aesthetic. I asked my kids how they think these model cats tolerate these Etsy hats, and here’s what they said:

Cookie, age 11: “You have to start them out in hats when they’re kittens. You have to start from Day One.”

The Pork Lo Maniac, age 11: “Composure. Lots of it.” (Composure is a cat sedative we we gave our kitties to help them put up with a long car ride.)

The Peanut Butter Kid, age 8: “First, you have to train it to stay, which would be really hard. Next you have to get the hat that you want it to wear, and let the cat sniff it to see what it thinks. You don’t want to surprise them and say, like, ‘Here’s a hat!’ They don’t like that.”

Little Dude, age 6: “I have no idea.”

Me neither, Little Dude. Me neither.

Take a look for yourself at these amazingly patient cats (and their adorable hats):
