Let me introduce you to Catpool, the Merc with a Meow.
The people that run Cat Cosplay have come up with a pawsome way to celebrate the release of 20th Century Fox's Deadpool. They've dressed up one of their feline companions in Deadpool's iconic red-and-black costume. It includes pouches, a pair of miniature swords mounted on the back, and even a see-through mask with white eye holes.
According to Cat Cosplay, Catpool's mask was the most challenging aspect. They spent two weeks patterning the mask so it fits comfortably around the cat's ears and whiskers, and doesn't prevent the cat from munching on its favorite treats.
Before you start planning to make your own Catpool you need to consider that the cat modeling the costume has over 5 years of experience, so unless you have Deadpool's healing factor I wouldn't advise trying to squeeze your pet into one with no extensive training.

Based upon Marvel Comics’ most unconventional anti-hero, DEADPOOL tells the origin story of former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson, who after being subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, adopts the alter ego Deadpool. Armed with his new abilities and a dark, twisted sense of humor, Deadpool hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life.
Deadpool hits theaters on Feb. 12, 2016.
