Please excuse me.
I'm trying not to swallow this
and while I realise that it looks like at least a kitten or two's worth of fur, fear not, gentle reader... I'm not completely denuding the local feline population and I'm not taking up cat-hair spinning. Not yet anyway.
This represents the merest tiny fraction of the hair that has just been liberated from Oakley's very elderly, difficult-to-groom and very fragile hide.
All appearances to the contrary:
he totally approves of the new you-beaut whiz-bang pet comb that I found for the massive budget-breaking sum of $4.95 [!!] in the cheapie bargain shop over at Daylesford today.
Despite its fearsome appearance, it's not too sharp, not too soft ... It's just right.
and if you've ever had to cut matted hair off an arthritic pet that can't properly groom itself anymore, you'll understand why I think this is blog-worthy news.
Not that I drove 50 km each way to buy a pet grooming implement.
Jeanette and I actually headed that way for a session of recreational knitting with the other Purl's Princesses [ and you thought that this was actually a knit-free post ? Ha! ]
but in the interests of your collective sanity, I'll just settle for showing you the half metre of Japanese cat fabric that followed me home
- how cute is this ?
It's a fairly sturdy drill fabric, probably a bit too heavy for a quilt
what do you think? shopping bag maybe ?
