Yes, unicorn horns for cats are an actual thing you can buy. [Title shortened.]
Metro [UK] ^ | 1 Jul 2014 | Caroline Westbrook

So just what do you get for the cat who has everything? Well, how about one of these – an actual inflatable unicorn horn designed specifically for the feline in your life.

The item – yours for a mere £6.40 on Amazon – will not only look very fetching on your kitty but may also help you realise your dream of turning your pet into a mythical, magical creature.

Alternatively, it may just make them look like a cat with a large inflatable object strapped to their head. But nonetheless we are assured from the box that ‘cats love it’ (yup, the one in the above picture looks like he’s having a whale of a time).

Of course if you don’t want to splash out for the actual inflatable horn – especially given the obvious possibility for your cat to get a little over-enthusiastic and burst it – you could always try turning your cat into a unicorn via more unconventional methods.

For starters, we have this gorgeous ginger kitty modelling this ambitious effort:

We didn’t have unicorns in Texas and didn’t even believe they existed, but I have dated so many California girls now who seemed to accept them, that I’m just not so sure anymore.

One thing about the cats at the link, they all look so incredibly happy about their unicorn horn.

Where is that sarcasm thingy?

Not sure I’d want a kitty as a pilot - you know how they are around birds.

I’ve never known a cat that would put up with having that thing on their head.

Dogs, on the other hand...

I have heard that the meat essence of a unicorn was irresistible to the right winger hunters, but to extinction?

The horror.

I can still dream of a future of unicorns running between the windmills of my dreams and dodging the carcasses of bald eagles as they deliver rainbows and enlightenment.

Is there really a lot of difference?

Someone here on FR who knows how should send this to Greg Gutfeld at Fox News. He will manage to turn it into something funny on either The Five or Red Eye. He has long been a unicorn fan and always makes fun of his buddy Andy Levy, who has lots of cats.

I searched for a way to send it to him, but all I could get was FBook and Twitter. I don’t do either one.

You can get unicorn meat in cans. I’m not good at posting graphics, so here is the link.

I kinda agree with you. I don’t even think Mikey would try it.

The meat in a tin I mean.

I actually considered buying one of those horns for my kitty last Christmas, but got her reindeer antlers instead. ,

One time we broke the horn off a unicorn and put two cat ears on each side of his head. It was really funny and looked like a cat mule but with with blood all over his head and face. It looked like John Kerry if he hit his head on a cactus and had cat ears. Then it died.

Then, I put the horn on a sperm whale that washed up on our beach and it looked like Al Gore with a unicorn horn put on his head.
