Love Harry Potter, The Hunger Games, or Twilight? How about Mad Men, The Smurfs, and True Blood? No matter what your fandom, chances are that FürButtons has the purrfect cat collar to represent you (and your cat's!) unique interests.

FürButtons founder Allison Way began knitting collars for her own pets and was so pleased with the results that she was inspired to set up shop. Her fashionable pieces of feline neckwear are not meant to restrain your cat, but rather are "a means for your kitty to fashionably express his/her inner personality."

Each collar is hand-knit with love, and the whole operation was inspired by Way's beloved cat, Sir Winston Churchill. While telling the touching story of how he came into her life, she writes, "A police officer found Winston, along with his brothers and sisters, abandoned in a dumpster. The kittens were in bad shape, but Winston was the worst. He traded in one of his nine lives and came home with me. Sir Winston Churchill is now a big, happy, and healthy kitty. He models and approves all the collars that I sell on Etsy and is paid for his efforts ... with treats."

Stop by the FürButtons Etsy shop to to check out the rest of the hip selection of styles for your pop-culture-conscious kitty!
