From my experience with cats, they would actually want ear warmers; thus the reason they are always sticking their heads up inside lampshades when the lamps are on. One of them likes to situate her head directly beneath the bulb, with her ears going up either side of it.
I dont know i seem to remember a certain cadillac cat from the heathcliff cartoon sporting some leg warmers and liking them. sure she didnt need them but she wanted them.
as for the "Cryptic is still working on the new hair physics. Don't worry, soon all you furries will get the perfect overly sexualized humanoid animals that you fantasize about all day. " While I like humanoid overly sexualized most anything... she had hair... she had a full head of hair not a mane but hair, to not offer a cannon look seems wierd if not wrong to me.
