The feline fashion tail, powered by four AA batteries, is simple to use–just attach it to the waistband of your pants or skirt with a clip. Astoundingly, it sways and curls up like a real cat’s tail. The cat ears are remotely controlled  and can shift into eight different positions that depict a cat’s emotional state.

The startup targets cosplayers (costume players), or people who want to dress up like cool cats during Halloween and other parties.


Twitchy Kitty Electronic Tail can be ordered directly from ThinkGeek for US$34.99 (P1,629). The animated kitty ears are priced at $30 (P1,397). Gianna Francesca Catolico
