I've always loved duct tape.  Making things out of duct tape was a hobby of mine back in grade school, and has stuck with me for years to follow.  When I decided my cat Schrödinger needed a bow tie, duct tape was the first material to come to mind.

What You Will Need:
Duct Tape
A willing cat (preferably one that doesn't eat duct tape!)

Note:  No kitty cats were harmed in the making of this instructable. 

Step 1: Make the Base of the Tie

Cut a roughly 10" strip of duct tape.  Being very careful to get it straight and not leave any bubbles, fold it in half and line up the ends.  Press the sticky sides together to create a sealed piece of duct tape cloth.

Cut another strip of duct tape of the same length.  Overlap your last piece of duct tape cloth about 1/2" onto the new duct tape, making sure that the long edges are parallel.  Line up the edges and fold the duct tape in half, sealing the sticky sides once more.

Make sure to trim all the edges leaving no leftover sticky spots.  Remember, this is going on a cat.  Cats have fur.  and teeth.  and claws.  Cats really don't like getting duct tape in their fur, or they can use those teeth and claws to inform you of such.
So cute :3
I think he likes it! :-)

Nice! We give our regal kitty Charles a toilet paper ascot on the regular. He loves it. We will have to give this a try and see if he is in.
