Social media users are dressing their cats up as Donald Trump and posting hilarious images and captions lampooning the US Republican hopeful who is emerging a front runner in the race for the white house.

The poor cats are being made to wear tufts of blonde hair, shirts and ties and posted with the hashtag #trumpyourcat to Instagram.

The trend began on 'Donald Purrump' Instagram account which told users to trump their cats and gave them instructions on how to go about it.

“#TrumpYourCat #JustDontTrumpAmerica 1.Brush your cat 2.Form the hair you brushed into a toupee 3.Place toupee on cat 4.Share w/ @trumpyourcat.”

The account which so far has 20,000 followers has over 200 posts of cats sporting Donald Trump’s famous hairstyle with its trademark pompadour. Accompanying the images are equally hilarious captions commenting on his policies and other snarky comments.

A prankster captioned their picture: "I'm not a debater, I get things done."

Another posted "I look forward to the debate on Thursday night & it is certainly my intention to be very nice & highly respectful of the other candidates."

Another commented on Trump’s vision for America, “I think he’s a wrecking ball for the future of the Republican Party with the Hispanic community and we need to push back. We need to reject this.”

Other users took the opportunity to make a quick buck. "When was the last time you saw a Chevrolet in Tokyo?" @realdonaldtrump THE TIME IS MEOW! Pre-order the #TrumpYourCat catnip "campaign button."

A photo of a stylish cat insisted that the hair was indeed real hair. "Come come, look... Is it mine?"
