Yes, I can has cheezburger

I like to poke fun at Etsy. It seems that for every one rea­son­able prod­uct, there are thou­sands of crafty prod­ucts that are a lit­tle too “craft.” These include items made with pop­si­cle sticks, puffy paint, shrinky-dinks, rhine­stones, and assorted garbage.  I am also a big fan of Regretsy for this rea­son.  Until recently, I had pur­chased exactly two things from Etsy: a sil­ver pen­dant and a laser-cut sticker.  Recently, I added a third item to my list of Etsy pur­chases: a cheese­burger.  A tasty cat­nip cheese­burger, to be exact, which I first read about at mod­ern­cat.

It turns out that I can has cheezburger after all, and all my cats now need are cap­tions with bad gram­mar to be lol­cats.

When the burger arrived, it was wrapped in paper, like a real burger.  The cats were instantly curi­ous, even Ebenezer who is immune to cat­nip. There was a slight skir­mish, Ebenezer got slapped, and The Precious grabbed the burger.

Since then, Norman has pretty much claimed it as his own.

The cheese­burger itself is of sur­pris­ingly good build qual­ity. The buns and burger are ter­rycloth, with felt cheese, let­tuce, and tomato. For a hunk of sewn fab­ric, the price seems a lit­tle steep at first, until you real­ize that crap­pier toys are sold at Pet Smart for about the same price. And those man­u­fac­tured toys do not have the lol­cats cachet.
