Did I really think this creature would make a good fiber animal? If domestic longhair cats in general were a good source of fiber, don't you think we'd all be more familiar with cat yarn in the knitting world? Don't you think maybe there would be cat farms where kitties were raised to supply fiber for the hobby spinning market? Maybe even a reasonably priced cat-fiber sweater in the Land's End catalogue? But I thought I would be able to do it. Because I'm so special and talented. I had visions of blissfully spinning a soft, fluffy laceweight yarn, maybe fine enough to make a lovely lacy "smoke ring" style cowl. Ha! I saved her fur for over a year. I washed it gently. I combed and brushed it as best I could, picking out clumps that were too matted.
kitty finger puppet? Maybe after my feelings have recovered a bit from the ordeal?
Humph. I'm going to go spin some wool.
