Lunchmeat the Owl

this our new little friend, brought to us by the nice people at Ikea. every once in a while, Matthias lets me drag him over there and wander aimlessly looking at all the pretty things we either don't have money for, don't have room for, or just plain can't have unless we want it destroyed by the cats (have i mentioned they're a bit unruly?). so we were there today to pick up a couple of things and saw some cute little animals on sale and grabbed one for the kitties. I was tempted to buy more, but i wasn't sure if they would like it, they can be finicky. they are after all, cats. But when we got home, they seemed to like him well enough, so i decided to name him Lunchmeat. why Lunchmeat? well, a couple weeks ago w had a little fun with felting and made a mouse-type toy for the kitties. admittedly, it's not the prettiest thing in the world, but it has all the things that Abby n Lily like: a frilly tail they can bat around, a sleigh bell inside, and it smells like sheep. i gotta tell you, it went over like gangbusters. they just couldn't get enough. i was all set to pat myself on the back and make a bunch more the following weekend until i found the remains a few days later... this is all that was left. lord knows where the tail went. it's such a sad little piece of almost nothing i couldn't even get the camera to focus on it properly. i figure Lunchmeat will be able to hold up a little better, but really, i think his days are numbered. i should probably get felting.
