Ever since my youth hood, I've had a slight obsession with felines. Cats have the potential to be hilarious, mysterious, sly, grumpy, self-righteous and, of course, absolutely beautiful.
That goes for all types of cats, too. From the giant furry beasts -- including cheetahs and lions and bobcats -- that freely roam around expansive terrains to the domestic variety that claw at curtains and rub against your leg when you walk in the door, cats are creatures that deserve adoration.
Over the years, cats have gained popularity momentum. Blogs and websites are dedicated entirely to their existence and yes, they've even sauntered their way onto the runway.
Cheetah and leopard prints have been a longtime favorite, but the cat madness doesn't stop there. Funky feline earrings, shirts, sweaters -- even purses showcasing a cat snout or whiskers are available for you to purchase and wear with pride (cat pun!).
Check out some of my favorite cat inspired fashion items below. Everything is priced under $50. Featured at top left is Etsy seller Emandsprout's Embroidered Kitty Flats ($25). Various sizes are available.
