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!

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 :-)

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

That was the easiest part!  Just slap some felt together with hot glue, and you've got yourself a hat.  I'm picturing the old lady in your icon wearing such a thing, and it's ridiculous.

I have dachshunds- they need weiner costumes!  Maybe I could make one a bratwurst, one a hot link and the other plain ol' hot dog!  The kitty is purtier than a dragonfly at sunset!  PS.  My cat was named Cannoli- if only I could have had a costume for her (as a cannoli, of course)!

That is just too adorable! Congrats on making it and getting it on the kitty! My cat is huge, that would be so funny on him. He's already mustard colored. He is the kind of cat that lets you do anything to him, so he probably would like it. YES, a cat dressed as a dog is HILARIOUS!!  Grin

Someone else suggested to me, too, and you're both totally right.  It got me thinking that maybe I should do a whole series...sushicat, anyone?
