Allison Christy, who owns a spynx cat named Barnabas, began sewing clothing for the hairless feline last summer during the COVID-19 shutdown. 

Barnabas Apparel grew into something much more than a small Etsy shop, Christy said, and the clothing line expanded into more than just for cats, too. "I have since grown into making cat and dog accessories for animals of all types, as well as started working towards a line of matching human merchandise."
