Cut two squares out of the felt so it can be folded in half to make one triangle shaped ear. Fold the square diagonally over the head band and glue together and in place on the headband. Do the same with the second square of felt. Now you have the ears for your cat. You could also use polar fleece or fake fur for these.

My 9 year-old son wants to be a cat for Halloween. Any ideas on how I could cheaply make this costume? Do you think he will get teased?
By Sandy Gerber
A black jogging suit, stuff it with news paper to make him a big fat black cat. Add a head band with some ears added, make a tail add a puffy ball to the end, and don't forget to put a collar with some ID tags on him. You could also get him a rubber mouse.
You could do the same as suggested only use beige for the running suit. Affix several rows of fake fur around the hood making him a lion, Stuff a panty hose leg with batting and wire-wire so you can position it not to drag the ground- no one would dare make fun of the king of the jungle. Rent the Wizard of oz and take make-up tips from there.
