Talk about Spectacular Cat Present fails, Amazon USA offers, for only $5.79, an inflatable unicorn horn for cats by Accoutrements. The description:
Your cat makes a show of being regal and in control, but you could turn all that around with this Inflatable Unicorn Horn for Cats. It’s a vinyl, 5-1/2″ (14 cm) long unicorn horn with a four-point elastic strap system that holds it comfortably on a kitty’s noggin. Why have just a regular cat, when you could have a uni-cat.
The premise here is that it will demean the cat, and who would want that? I suppose it would appeal to those among us who have a penchant for unicorns and narwhals—obsessions I’ve never understood among skeptics.
Anyway, the accompanying pictures of horn-wearing cats are not a good advertisement for the product!

And a second treat: a very deep cartoon from SMBC:
