We love a good Etsy find — especially if it’s something adorable. And these customizable “Purrmaid” necklaces are definitely adorable. What is a “purrmaid,” you may ask? It’s exactly what it sounds like — a cat and mermaid combo.

The necklaces are available from GirlAndHerCat — also known as Sarah Boyd — who creates her crafts from Warrensburg, Missouri. There’s currently a bit of a waiting list for them, since everyone wants one.

In an interview with Mashable, Boyd explained how things took off.

Boyd has no problem making the pieces look as close to a customer’s cat as possible, and that’s because she understands the bond that humans and cats often have. (If you haven’t figured it out, she’s a cat lover herself.)

The pendants are so popular that creating them has become Boyd’s full time job.

Each purrmaid takes, on average, between 3 to 5 hours to create, and they’re currently retailing for $30.

Of course, she doesn’t focus solely on cats.

We want them all, so we might as well add our names to that growing wait list.
