Cat News Friday - Cat hair crafts are all the rage!


Stephanie from Catsparella is into it. So, why not the rest of us?

The new fad hitting the cat world is this - making accessories out of cat hair that would have otherwise ended up all over your new furniture and clothes. The fad owes itself to the popular book entitled "Crafting with Cat hair," written by Japanese author Kaori Tsutaya.

In this book, cat lovers can learn how to make finger puppets, cat toys, picture frames, tote bags, and more. All crafts are doable in an hour's time, and are 100% eco and cat friendly!

Perhaps my favourite idea is that of making cat toys out of a cat's own hair. Cat toys fall apart easily, so from both an economical and practical point of view, it makes sense to create cat toys out of a literally inexhaustible product such as cat hair!

Would you make accessories out of your cat's hair?

I think it is a bit strange, especially since we yak that stuff up sometimes!

The mom says no, because she really doesn't do anything "crafty." So she wouldn't have the patience for it. But it would be fun to have someone else make something from our fur.

Mum is not the least bit arty so we think it's best not to dwell on her arty work!!
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

I don't know if I would do it, it depends if it's easy to do or not I am quiet lazy when it comes to craft work, lol !

Mommy says she just don't know about that. Cod knows, there is enuff of the stuff to go around!

If Mom was going to do that, she would most likely get the fur from all the places we put it anyway ;) heeheehee
The furs Mom likes best are the ones on our bodies :)

That's pretty clever but our mommy wouldn't know what to make out of our fur. We'd give her an endless supply though!
