    I was wondering what everyone's opinions were on applying temporary tattoos (like the ones for kids) to your sphynx cats. I've seen quite a few pictures of cats with these decorations on them and I'm intrigued.

    But I'm also a little concerned about whether this is harmful or not. What is they lick them? Will it irritate their skin/oil glands? ect. I know they're safe for children, but I don't know if it's something I'd want to put on my cat. Any input?

    A few folks here put temp tats on their cats. I want to try it also but haven't been able to get an answer. I even contacted a seller on Ebay that has temp tats, but she only knew that they were safe for kids, not Sphynx cats. I'm gonna' subscribe to this thread to see if anyone knows where to get them.:ThumbsUp:

    I put them on Nofuratu. Never had any probs with him getting sick or irritated skin from them. I always put them on a place where he cant lick so it lasts longer.

    Temps are going to be part of Harry's halloween costume this year. He's gonna be a punk so we need a mom tattoo and some skull and crossbones. Also a mohawk if anyone knows where I can get a kitty size one :BigSmile:.

    I've done it dozens of times. My favorite is a transformers tattoo I put on Butterball's head right between his ears.

    That is the one and the same Butterball. He's a lizard hunting, tattoo getting, bath hating, toilet paper eating, maniac!

    My 3 year old daughter covered herself and my kitty from head to toe with temp tattoos. I had to bring her to the vet that day for her shots and lets just say the office almost ppd them self. my vet wasn't concerned as long as they are non toxic plus Veve never cleans her self anyways. They mostly washed off or peeled off that night. I wish I would had taken pics of it.

    I love Butterball! He is so awesome! I watch all his videos, and I've showed them to my family. They all think he's hilarious.

    yes! You can go to etsy.com and look up hats for cats. Theres a girl that knits hats for cats and sells them for $12 - 14 each and thers a tie on cap one with a mohawk!! Its the funniest thing! I showed one to my friend who crochets and she tried making on for Nofuratu but it was too small...he has a big head...if you know someone who knits they dont look hard to make. You just need to make the ear holes big enough.
    The pictures on etsy are so funny because the cats are furry ones....and they are all just hanging out wearing these knitted caps....with flowers and Mohawks...LOL

    Etsy has a lot of great stuff for cats. If you do a search for hairless cats you'll find a fleece sweater with a shark fin on the back that sticks up. It's pretty awesome. The same woman also makes ones with bat wings on the sides.

    Where do you get BBall's tats from? I want to be sure I'm getting 1's that are safe for cats? Or are you just using 1's for children?:BigSmile:
