There was even a display case for the slippers when they were not being worn.
The idea proved a hit with fans, with one saying it is ‘even cuter than she expected’.
Another wrote: ‘How do I make these cute slippers? That’s excellent!’
A handful questioned whether the slippers are a hotbed for fleas.
Minira is not the only feline who got new shoes as the crafting craze took off on TikTok and users posted their creations.

Spa day: The cat was also given a mini kitty face mask by his indulgent owner
A tutorial by one TikTok user showed how the slippers were made where they used a glove brush to collect the fur and layered it into a sheet.
They then cut the piece of fur fabric to size, folded it into the shape of a slipper and secured it with glue.
Other users showed a different method, similar to felting, where the fluff was collected into a fur ball and pieces were taken off and stabbed with a needle into the shoe shape.
Some even added decorations to their kitty’s new fashion statement such as hearts, bows and one user made a sticker to look like the Nike logo.
