A woman’s cat is reaching unexpected heights of viral fame thanks to an adorable home-made crown.

Pixie, 11, belongs to Beth Wilson, an artist from Portishead, Somerset. She runs business Doodle Cats and has recently been focusing on craft and jewellery making.

“Surrounded by wire and beads, the idea popped into my head to make her a crown and I got kind of carried away,” Wilson told the Press Association.

An hour later, Pixie had a crown fit for a queen – something she definitely deserves. “I’m chronically ill and she looks after me so much,” said Wilson. “I would be lost without her.”

Wilson posted photos of Pixie modelling the crown on Twitter, gaining over 800 likes.

So what’s next for this creative genius? Wilson says she plans to make crowns for her two other “gorgeous” cats Molly and Arty.

A trend may well be starting.
