Ellis, best known for his humor blog Books of Adam, his book The Blunder Years, and his portraits of everyday people on Reddit, has been the talk of the site’s r/aww community thanks to these tiny hats for cats.
Over the past two weeks, Ellis turned a pile of construction paper into cute headwear for his cat, Maxwell, and posted photos on Instagram. They include a graduation cap, a nurse’s cap, and a fez.
Ellis adopted the handicapped kitty on July 10.
“So yeah, I’m not just a writer and illustrator, I’m also a friggin’ milliner,” Ellis wrote on his blog. “Are you jealous of my skills? Are you impressed I know the word milliner? I thought so.”
A milliner, by the way, is a person who makes hats for women. Or, in this case, cats.
