Attention to all of the proud cat ladies who previously expressed enthusiasm for freaky feline art projects: your pleas for an English version of Crafting With Cat Hair have been heard. Catsparella reports the book is already available for pre-order on Amazon, and the authors have a special request.
"Editor Margaret McGuire and designer Katie Hatz have already begun crafting. One of them doesn't even own a cat, and I'm not at liberty to divulge where she's been collecting the animal fur...though it may involve a Mission Impossible-esque cable drop scenario.
However, with all the crafting they've been doing, there just isn't enough cat hair. And that's where you come in.
Our two cat loving crafty ladies want you to send in your cat hair. That's right. Send in some cat hair and make sure you include your cat's name and photo. When the book's publication date gets closer, I'll feature several of your proud, hair-donating kittens on the (soon to be) re-launched Quirkbooks.com. Margaret and Katie may even make a little framed portrait of their favorite kitty, to be published online for the world to see. We'll see how much cat hair we get.
Send your bags o' cat hair to...

Cat hair will not be returned...but come on, do I really need to say that?"
Have fun, ladies. And to those who balked at my initial disdain for fur crafts, I'll admit that I do have a tuft of my late cat's hair ... but I'm still not going to make a finger puppet out of it.
