Good news for Tiger King fans who have yet to make or buy a non-surgical face mask: Carole Baskin has got you covered! The animal rights activist has created her very own face coverings and they're perfect for anyone who just can't help themselves from saying "Hey all you cool cats and kittens!" on the reg.

Released in collaboration with Chicago company Tread 365, the dual-layered, washable masks come in two colours - black and leopard print (duh) - and feature whisker detailing, along with the classic slogan. Carole herself introduced them on Facebook via her Big Cat Rescue Facebook page, sharing two pictures in the masks and wearing a very jazzy flower crown.

If you fancy getting your hands on a mask or two, the good news is the company will ship internationally. Each mask costs $11 (around £8.99), although you'll pay $13.50 (£11) for shipping. A portion will "go directly to supporting the big cats" although the brand's website doesn't say how much per sale.

Please note: these masks are not medical grade. If you're looking to invest in a face mask to help protect yourself during quarantine, check out our complete Face Mask Guide with everything you need to know and brands to shop closer to home.

And if that's not enough Carol merch for you, there's also a bunch of Baskin-endorsed t-shirts and hoodies available to buy online now too.

You probably don't need to worry about Tiger King becoming just a fad, either. A number of adaptations of the Netflix documentary series are underway, with actor Nicholas Cage set to play Carole's rival Joe Exotic in one. Earlier this week, American Pie actress Tara Reid revealed that she's in the running to play 58-year-old Carole.
