Pretty Kitty Spring Cat Hat
It's been a hot minute since I've featured any new and exciting feline headwear, so I was excited to discover I Heart Needlework, an Etsy shop devoted to offering knit and crochet hats, costumes, accessories, and apparel for people, pups, and of course, kitties!
Lion Mane Cat Hat
Owner Meredith Yarborough tells me that she's been avid cat lover since childhood, and her inspiration for starting the shop was to share her appreciation of the feline race with the rest of the world.
"You see so many creations and items catered to dogs, but not nearly enough for cats, and they need to be recognized too," she says.

Frog Prince Cat Hat
Meredith's adorable creations range from jaunty springtime bonnets, to costumes, cupcake hats, cowls, and more. Her feline designs are modeled by her patient and handsome kitties, Bullwinkle (primary tabby model) and Sparrow (black and white alternate hat model). Before they started a life of cat hat modeling, the two brothers were rescued at about 8 weeks old, and haven't looked back since.
"Bullwinkle is the most docile and accepting cat you will ever meet," she says. "He doesn't discriminate, but shows an equal love for people, other cats, and dogs."
