Who says couture can't be fashionable and practical?
A rescue kitten named Wasabi-chan is proving that statement true after photos of the itty-bitty furball went viral showing her dressed as a mushroom and in other adorable crocheted ensembles.
But the stylish kitty's purr-recious sartorial selection stemmed from necessity more than vanity. Wasabi-chan was attacked by a crow on June 2, reports Mashable
, and suffered a fractured upper jaw and split tongue. She required a catheter to feed, but kept wiggling the tube out of her mouth. Thus, her owner, who goes by the Twitter handle @jessiepon
, crafted a series of costumes to keep Wasabi-chan still during feedings.
More than a month later, the bright-eyed furbaby
is on the mend, and looking as cute as ever. Here's hoping there's a new wardrobe in her future to match!
