Kitty Cat Ears Keychains

Kitty Ear Self Defense Keychain Collection in Assorted Colors

Kitty cat ears keychains are possibly the "cutest" of the bunch. The kitty cat face has a heart-shaped nose, cute little whiskers, and a youthful rounded face shape. They have average-sized ears which make them relatively potent for self-defense.

Kitty cat ears come in a wide array of colors ranging from classics like black and silver to modern colors like chrome and tangerine. This vast selection of colors make them very appealing to both students as well as young adults. They cost a very affordable $6.99 and should last a long time.

Tiger ears keychains are a bit more fierce than the cute kitty cat ears keychains above. These safety keychains have longer ears and longer faces which allow the tiger ear to reach further and with more force. However, they are still very stylish rocking spotted ears which are indicative of the big cats. The color selection of tiger ears keychains is more limited with the base colors of silver, gold and black, as well as teal, orchid, and magenta.

Tiger ears are perfect for any woman who wants a more powerful defensive keychain that still has the cute attributes of the original cat ears. Tiger ears cost $6.99.

Dog Ears Self Defense Keychains

Dog Ears Safety Keychains in Assorted Base Colors

Dog ears safety keychains are a relatively new addition to the cat ears weapon family, and it was about time! The age old question of "are you a cat person or dog person?" finally has the equivalent self defense weapon dilemma!

These dog ear safety keychains are a bit different from the rest of the cat ear keychains. They are made of a strong ABS plastic rather than metal. The "face" and the body of the weapon is more dense and solid than the cat ears. Other than those two things, the functionality is still the same - simply grip the dog ear keychain between the dog's eyes with its ears facing outward and use it to deter an aggressor.

They come in just 6 colors of brown, black, purple, blue, red, and pink and they cost $6.99.

Animal ear self defense keychains are also a relatively new addition to the cat ear weapon family. They're called "animal ears" because of their ambiguous facial features, but they are still quite cute and fashionable.

Animal ear self defense keychains have the same functionality as the other ear keychains - simply hold the animal head through its eyes with the sharp ears pointing away from you and use them in a dangerous situation.

The animal ear keychain collection is designed a bit differently with the ears protruding less and instead tilting inward like a claw. This makes the entire piece very formidable for protection while being more compact.

They come in a variety of base solid colors as well as the special multi-colored chrome version. The cost is $6.99.
