It’s the purrfect gift for the coronavirus pandemic. If you have to wear a face covering, why not look like a cool cat?

Carole Baskin, the founder of Big Cat Rescue who has been featured in Netflix’s “Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness,” is selling face coverings with her catchphrase: “Hey, all you cool cats and kittens.”

Baskin began selling the items Saturday on tread365.com to raise money to help big cats. The face coverings cost $11, and portions of the proceeds also support first responders.

Tread 365 said on its website that it has “developed reusable face masks that act as simple barriers for your face.”

The face coverings feature Baskin’s signature phrase above a whiskered feline that sports a Cheshire cat look. The masks are available in black or leopard print.

Earlier this month, Josh Pieters and Archie Manners, who have more than 1.3 million subscribers on their YouTube channel, pranked Baskin into giving a remote interview by pretending to be producers of “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” Variety reported.
