Before I became part of the cat fancy (I sort of arrived by default), I had no idea what stud pants were. I suppose it is common sense now when I think about it. And it’s all about cat breeding.
Cat breeders sometimes keep their cats in outside enclosures. Jean Mill the famous Bengal breed founder did this for example. I don’t know the percentage of breeders who do. Perhaps a cat breeder can tell me. Or you might like to join in some pet chat generally.
Stud pants are like human underpants, with a hole for the tail! Because stud boys like to spray urine and it’s natural and totally normal but a little difficult for the human companion unless you’ve got glazed concrete flooring and tiled walls throughout the home (and no furniture).
I guess they are made from one size fits all stretch material. This link shows how to make them: http://www.cat-world.com.au/StudOveralls.htm. Or on a discount (useful at Jan 2009) try making them yourself from baby-diapers (nappies in the UK). Just cut a hole in them for the tail.
It probably takes time for the boy to get used to them particularly if he is walking around in diapers. How can he be a top cat? The embarrassment!
