Tuna Chips ahoy!
Blimey! It’s puss sporting an earring!
And an earring made of his cat hair, spiraled with stainless steel. Amazingly he did not shake it off. The purrfect model.
Blue heart. Red heart. Purple heart.
My heart is WHITE and soft as snow
And he’s my love for all to know
But trapped in steel will he still glow?
Oh heart! I can not let you go.
I have a love affair with felines. This relationship, which some might call an obsession, has always been a part of me. Even when I was a baby, my little hand grabbed out, reaching for that passing feline. Why is it we love what we love anyway? I think this thing for cats is just part of my DNA!
Most cat lovers wear their cat’s hair inadvertently on their clothing. I prefer to wear mine in the form of jewelry. In honor of my love for him I made this necklace. His beautiful soft white hair is felted in the shape of a heart, then trapped between 2 pieces of wire mesh. A caged heart. We do this with those we love at times, holding tightly, not wanting them to leave.
For those who love their cats as much as I do: a made-to-order necklace, on etsy, the purrfect way to wear the hair from your precious cat. An ode to cat lovers:
Black heart. Grey heart. Orange heart.
Your heart’s COLOR may be as dark as coal
But he’s still your love for all to know
And trapped in steel I’ll have him glow
A lovely heart! And with you he will go.
