So, a while back I learned that Kitten Belly Fur is the softest thing in the world. Coincidentally, I once worked on an experiment that required me to save cat fur (but not of the belly variety).
The experiment was based on a theory that one could collect a bag of fur that was bigger than the cat from whence the fur originated. Obviously, the answer is yes, if you collect fur for years. I had no interest in conducting a lengthy experiment, so I decided to figure out “How quickly can one collect a bag of fur that is bigger than a cat?”
This experiment required meticulous fur brushing and the highly specialized use of lint brushes for specimen collecting. I used the highest quality safety equipment and the judicious application of treats to collect the cat’s prized fur.
After weeks of collecting, I discovered a terrible flaw in the experiment!! Cat shedding is seasonal! The experiment would have to be conducted in two phases. Aaargh!
It took 22 days to complete the summer experiment. The winter experiment was never completed, as I became obsessed with trying to make snow…
Anyway, I have a bag of cat fur somewhere. I saved it in case I ever need cat genetic material.
Today I was alerted to the existence of a book (thanks N1!) that would allow one to actually make things from cat fur!! I can’t believe I have a bag of cat fur and didn’t even think to turn it into a book cover, or a coin purse or a tote bag (to carry a cat who”s fur was used to make the bag..)
My entrepreneurial skills must be slipping!!
If you study the cover of the book, you may be amused and disturbed of the idea that the cat on the cover is sniffing a tiny doppleganger made of it’s own FUR!!!
Oh, and you can make a fur pin cushion AND a merit badge!! Words fail me.
So, the Question of the week is:
Why was I not the one to see that cat fur crafts was a viable craft idea?
It’s got to be plural. Mr. Donut isn’t funny, but Mr. Donuts is. Can you imagine NOT laughing, every time you call your cat “Mr. Donuts?”
“Mr. Donuts! Hold still, while I apply a lint brush to your belly… Mr. Donuts! Get my hand out of your mouth…!”
