Cat people have just achieved a level of Crazy even I, an enthusiastic ridiculer of crazy cat people, was not aware of until now.

The second part of this book's title is Cute Handicrafts to Make with Your Cat. Now let's think about that for a second. It's preposterous to imagine you and your cat could team up on craft night to make some dog voodoo dolls and tuna fish-scented glitter balls for him to chase around the living room. Right?

But I'd rather think a book believes that's possible than the reality of the situation. Which is that when author Kaori Tsutaya says she has some cute handicrafts to make with your cat, she means she has some cute handicrafts to make out of your cat. Crafting with Cat Hair is her M.O.

O.M.

G.

In Crafting with Cat Hair Tsutaya lays out projects that teach readers how to "transform stray clumps of fur into soft and adorable handicrafts." And don't worry, "stray clumps of fur" isn't code for "skinned street cats." She's talking about the fur balls your cat leaves on the couch, sheds or your sweaters, and coughs up in your shoes. None of the projects are harmful to their sources.

They're just harmful to human evolution, as anyone willing to scour their home or dig through vacuum containers for clumps of discarded hair to turn into finger puppets and furry picture frames is clearly setting us back a few hundred years.

The upshots of Crafting with Cat Hair: Cute Handicrafts to Make with Your Cat is that it's suitable for beginner crafters and most projects take under an hour to complete!
