Humor blogger and author, Adam Ellis (Books of Adam, The Blunder Years), recently adopted a three-legged kitten named Maxwell.
"They don't know how he lost his arm," he writes of Maxwell's handicap. "But I assume it was a shark attack, like that surfing girl in Hawaii.
In order to cut down on a surplus of construction paper that had inexplicably invaded his home, Ellis decided to start making tiny hats for his newest housemate, who has been modeling them with varying degrees of enthusiasm.
Designs channel everything from Pokémon and Final Fantasy, to a pirate, Mad Hatter, and coquettish nurse.
(In case you can't see it, the diploma reads: "Bachelor of tossing kitty litter all over the damn place.")
It's true that I have been known to bust out a pair of scissors and craft some pint-sized feline headwear of my own (see my interpretation of Princess Beatrice's fascinator here), but I'll admit that Ellis has me beat.
His designs are not only pop culturally aware, but also contain a certain depth that my one-dimensional designs lack.
Check out more of shots of Maxwell in his hats here, and follow Adam on Instagram where he promises to regularly upload new designs. You should also definitely read his post, 7 Reasons Getting A Kitten Is Awesome And Also Terrible.
