Shark Week is the best. Even my cat Luna thinks so.

And what better way for a fancy predatory jungle cat to celebrate Shark Week? Wearing a shark fin costume and destroying all the tiny things in the apartment is definitely the way to go.

The costume only consists of a shark fin and is really easy to make, in case you have a tolerant cat that might want to be a shark for shark week. :D

Step 1: what you'll need:

  • fabric glue
  • a piece of grey felt (those printer paper sized ones you can find anywhere work!)
  • thin elastic
  • cardboard from a cereal box or something similar
  • sewing machine or needle & thread
  • pins
  • paper to draw shark fin on
<p>I love this! It's adorable and it'll give people a chuckle, and Sushi won't even care about it, since I'd just attach it to his harness.</p>
very nice cat)))
jessyratfink that is cool! :D
think it would work on chihuahuas too?
Definitely! I think it would look awesome on a chihuahua. :D
Poor little baby looks like she thinks you are going to make her go under water to fool people with it, lol! Make her some butterfly wings, that would be cool. I think I'll suggest it to my kids for their cats, but they are getting on in years now and may not be as tolerant.
At first, I thought Jezebel, BoingBoing, Gizmodo, LifeHacker, ohdeeoh, and CRAFT were other cats in your house. Pays for me to read all of the article! I like this especially during shark week.
Hahaha, that is absolutely adorable! Very nice! You should do other holiday kitty costumes :)
That cat is not scared of no stinking shark!
Very nice, quality work even though it is a small project. None of my cats celebrate shark week. Maybe you'll create another holiday costume.
this made my day
Great!!...Great handwork and great thinking!..5 stars!!..... <br>
One of my cats would tolerate this. I am imagining Jaws music playing as shark-cat creeps stealthily across the floor and pounces. <br> <br>I must make one for the dog and take him swimming. That would be hilarious.
Very nice! I'd love to make one and make even more funny videos than I usually make, but my two cats would totally freak out, one would panic and jump all over the place and eventually get hurt trying to take it off, the other would just freeze and stay terrified until I get pityful and set her free.
Very cute! Has she figured how to get out of it yet? Have you ever noticed how kitties seem to know when you're video taping and get curiously still and camera shy. Once the button is turned off. Zoom!
She never quite figured out how it was attached because her fur was covering the elastic. :P
jajajajaj! Okey! is a good costume, but... Is the less scaring shark I ever seen!
She's terrifying only to plastic straws
This is the most wonderful instructable I've seen! very nice
Hahe what a cutey. Its nice the little Luna like wearing costumes. But does she like the water the sharks are in. :)
Ha, she actually likes water quite a bit. We have a huge refilling water bowl, and sometimes she'll put both her front legs in it. More often than not when you pick her up she's wet from something. :P
My fiance definitely loved this. Nice work. <br> <br>p.s. What pretty white kitties you have. Did you make the
Costume is adorable, but of course, I think your kitty, Luna would makes any costume look adorable!! <br> <br>Very beautiful kitty ;) <br> <br>Beth
Sooo cool do u think this would work of dogs?? cause if i would that would be awesome!!
Oh, definitely! I was running out of time to get this posted before Shark Week, though, so my gigantic dog didn't get a fin. :P
=( no fin for big dog =( but still my dog can get 1 cause he's the size of a cat lol and plays like 1 2
its just elastic cant see why it wouldnt
Cool Bananas I know you'd like them monkey kid lol
I'm glad I'm not the only one with extension cords and power strips all over the place. Cute chark. (or is she a shat?) Cute LunaShark.
Haha, yeah... our living room has one outlet in a really awkward place so we have to feed it power. :P <br /> <br />I like chark!
Ridiculously cute :)
It seems every stitcher needs one thing - a very tolerant cat!
haha cool <br>luna is such a tolerant kitty :) <br>
This is too cute! I would make one for my cat but he would never forgive me. Your cat seems to actually like being dressed up (at least in the pictures)!
