Animal Cruelty

Meet Igor aka Iggy. Iggy is a Niebelung cat ( Russian Blue with long hair).A friend of mine found him last year and gave him to me as she wasn't able to keep him. Iggy thinks he's the king and acts like one. Doesn't like to be told off, doesn't like to be brushed ( and he needs it).


So as a reward to myself when I brush him, I decided to make some felt beads with his fur !
Here is a pair of earrings I made with some of the beads. This will be a gift for the friend who gave me Iggy. Maybe I'll make a bracelet too ! We'll see !

Gorgeous cat, and I love the cat-felt-beads, Steph!

What a handsome, handsome cat - and very quirky using his hair for beads.

Excellent!! C'est une bonne idée le bracelet, comme ça le chat sera super bien peigné.
Sans rire, les b.o. sont très belles (la bague aussi d'ailleurs).

That is so funny! Your cat is beautiful and so are the earrings.
My cat makes her own felt beads under her chin and around her legs. They aren't very round or pretty though. She doesn't like to be brushed either.
