Have you seen the latest trend in cat hairdos?
Trumping cats they call it. It's the practice of taking the tufts of brushed off fur that you get after grooming your cat's coat and setting them up on Kitty's head to make them look like Donald Trump's iconic hairstyle. Add a serious and dignified look and the resemblance can be quite striking!
The term "Trump Your Cat" is now a hashtag on instagram, Twitter and other social networks. Feast your eyes on these specatular Donald Trump lookalikes - which do you think pulls it off the best?
I think cream and red colored cats have an unfair natural advantage -
But really, any coat color can be Trumped. Tabbies -
Tabby and white -
White cats -
And even black cats -
Hmmm, wait a minute. I suspect the last one cheated!
Actually, I found a few other suspicious photos of cats which were trumped with something other than their own clumps of hair!
What do you think about this Burmese-looking cat, is that his hair up there?
How about this black Persian cat?
This doesn't look like discarded post-brush hair! Not only foul play but I suspect an accomplice too (unless a silver tabby can have a red tail AND be extremely flexible with it!)
Ok, some people really took this too far, using props! -
I guess sometimes you just have no choice but to fake that hair... How else is a Sphynx cat to participate in the fun?
I actually think some use of props can be legit, as long as the hairdo is done properly -
But in the end, it's all about displaying a Trumpish attitude in front of the camera. And yes, most cats can pull an "I can run this country" cattitude fairly naturally (or at least "I can run this household"), but for a purrfect Trump Your Cat image, I prefer cats that can pull off the famous "You're fired!" look too!
