Indonesian tailor makes cosplay costumes for cats

Indonesia's cat fashion

It may not be haute couture

but Fredi Lugina Priadi has found a lucrative market

for unique cat costumes

His business now generates up to $210 a month

(SOUNDBITE) (Bahasa Indonesia) CAT COSPLAY COSTUME MAKER, FREDI LUGINA PRIADI, SAYING: "My cousins who love cats gave me the idea to make these costumes. At first, I thought it was weird, 'why do animals need to wear clothes?' but it turned out to be funny to see them wearing costumes."

Some online commentators consider it cruel

but others are embracing it

(SOUNDBITE) (Bahasa Indonesia) 31-YEAR-OLD CAT OWNER, RISMA SANDRA IRAWAN, SAYING:" It's for fun only. Sogan has a TikTok account and looking at pictures of cats wearing costumes like these can help to relieve our stress, and I, as the owner, can have fun with the cat. After all, my cat tends to be quiet and happy."
