This is my boyfriend's kitten, Delicious (that was the only alternative to the first name he picked out, "Ugly").  He's an art student, and for a project, he wanted to put her in a food costume, at which point we both thought of a hotdog, and I remembered seeing this thread awhile ago:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=13773.0

So with a few modifications, we made her costume. 






I added batting to the inside of the pieces to make them puffy, but this decreased the costume's coverage, so if I were doing it again I'd make the individual pieces larger.  And of course, we topped it off with the pickle hat. 

She looks more hot-doggerly when she's walking around and not squishing the costume, but she looked so sad that I didn't want to further break her spirit by making her get up.  Actually, I don't think she minded that much; she's a very permissive cat.  She hasn't tried to take her revenge...yet.

That is one extremely tolerant cat.  I especially like the pickle hat.  Very cute!

Oh poor kittie! It's funny though. I would so try to dress my cats up in something like that.

I'm not a hotdog-eater, either, unless it's the veggie kind.  And no scratches at all--she's very sweet.
Glad you like it :-)

A hotcat, you'd have to call it. The pickle hat just completes it Smiley It's so darn cute!

ooh my! That is seriously the most adorable thing ever.

And I love how it's kinda like a paradox because dogs and cats are viewed as enemies... and you have a cat dressed as a hot dog. I don't know... it sort of makes sense  Huh
