I have no idea why we ordered this book. Perhaps because the tag line is “Cute Handicrafts to Make with Your Cat” and someone thought, “Oh! Wonderful. I’ve always wanted to do craft projects with my cat and I’m sure others do to.” Of course, they didn’t realize that it really means make “handicrafts” WITH your cat…or just it’s hair.
There are many different uses for your cat’s hair…you can make badges, book covers, or craft some cat hair into the figure of a cat and slap it on a scarf! There are just so many possibilities.
I laughed out loud. Like really loud.
After the “WTF” finally passed, I looked a little closer and learned that this was originally published in Japanese and it’s been TRANSLATED into English. There’s just THAT much demand for cat hair craft ideas. After one little Google search, I learned that there really are people who dig this other than the author. Am I alone in thinking this is really odd? I can’t believe I missed the buzz about this book back in October. HOW COULD I MISS SOMETHING THIS AWESOME?!
OK…so then I looked a little closer. It’s published by Quirk. They are amazing and the “seekers of all things awesome.” I mean, is anything more awesome than a book about making crafts out of your cat’s hair? I think not.
When’s the sequel Crafting with Dog Hair coming out? I expect to see some full size dog hair sculptures.
