Who needs puss in boots when you can have puss in tights? Hot on the heels of the dogs in pantyhose sensation, cats are hitting back with a new fashion statement of their own: long, lean legs in tights. Prepare to be creeped out.

The leader of the litter is a 16-year-old cat named Gucci, who started the craze recently from her hometown of Gothenburg, Sweden. Gucci’s photographer, owner Katja Wulff, posted photos of the long-legged kitty on Tumblr and a new craze was born, with cats around the world elongating their legs and posting pictures of their own.

News of the trend has just reached Japan, so while we’re waiting to see what Japanese cats will make of the situation, let’s take a look at how the cats of the world are strutting their stuff on the Internet.
