A former Indonesian school teacher named Fredi Lugina Priadi becomes a tailor for cat outfits, creating unique costumes and cosplay outfits for cats.

This 39-year-old man had been trying a handful of businesses before finally found this strange yet unique love of creating outfits for cats. Fredi has even tried running a motor repair shop before this.

This tailor gives the people the option of choosing the many ranges of costumes that he has for people that love to dress up their pet cat either going from superhero costumes to even the traditional Indonesian wear.

“At first, my cousins who love cats gave me the idea to make these costumes and I thought it was weird,” said Fredi.

“But it turned out to be funny to see them with costumes,” he said, speaking from his rustic workshop with a sewing machine in Bogor just south of the capital Jakarta,” he added.

Since setting up his online business three years ago, Fredi earns around $210 a month, with an average of 4 costumes sold daily. The price for his costumes ranges between $6 to $10.

A loyal customer, Risma Sandra Irwan, has bought at least 30 of his costumes. Her cat, Sogan, would wear them on special occasions like Eid al-Fitr or Christmas.

“It’s for fun only…it can relieve our stress,” said Risma.

Though Fredi has received some negative comments saying that it’s cruel to dress up an animal, he advises buyers to not keep them in the outfit for too long.
