Uses for cat hair (and boredom) Answered

Something I always wanted to do was learn to spin yarn.
So, I looked up online how they appeared, and made a spinner from an old hard drive,
a paintbrush handle, a bread board, and another doo-hickewy, and set off..

First, I must say, I now know what it feels like to have a hairball)...

From the photo, you can see that I have much more practice, if only I could bear eating Petromalt)

My cats fur is short, and I had saved a container, which I had in the freezer for some time...
The invention Kit-D-Sguise


So where is the instructable on making your own spinning wheel? Please publish!


most basic possible spinning wheel. one step above just twisting with fingers

seldom does something online make me literaly lol.

ya got me! rasta kitty. lol.

Family sized...If I ever get brave enough to 'play with cat fur' again, I;ll remember that!
No instructable for it, I just went to google images, saw what it looked like...
Made it from a plastic paintbrush handle, melted it to make the hook - had a spinny type wheel from a hard drive I had torn apart years ago, glued the paintbrush handle into the wheel thing (left about an inch sticking out the end...
heck, hard to explain how I did it, but if you do an image search, you;ll get the idea.

The question would be, you have to store cat hair in the freezer?

No, freezer isn't necessary...my cat is a 'bug collector', so just trying to thwart fleas - in case. (He was adopted as an older abandoned outdoor kitty and still has his mouse hunting desires, and we live in a wodoed area

I'm laughing at the kitty dreadlocks! There is a woman in SF who makes earrings out of cat hair.

Last year I had a container of black, white, and tan pellets of cat hair felt in the garage, waiting for inspiration to strike. They got tossed after I watched an episode of Hoarders.

The comment about eating Petromalt reminded me that the label on the extra-large tube says "Family Size" LOL instead of "Multi-Cat Household", as if all the people are going to eat it too.
