Ruffles seem to be a real thing among the top-rated Amazon shower curtains, and while I've never actually seen anyone with a ruffled shower curtain, I'm starting to think I want one.

Up next is something a little different. The Gwein Animals Funny Kitten Cat Bathing Decoration Shower Curtain isn't something you'd come across in the average bathroom, but if you're looking for a way to show off your love of cats then this is definitely it. At £13.39 it's on the cheaper end of the scale, and out of 44 customer reviews, 93% gave it five stars. But some reviewers are a little creeped out by the cat's eyes; 'Really cute curtain. Creepy thing is that the cat watches you no matter where you go in the bathroom. He watches us brush teeth, go to the bathroom, and since the image is visible on both sides, he watched us shower. It was so creepy that we had do buy a new liner that was dark. Kids refused to get naked while being watched. But it is an awesome, well made curtain.'
