Shave a Cat and Make a Finger Puppet

Kaori Tsutaya, a catlover from Japan, has written Crafting With Cat Hair: Cute Handicrafts to Make With Your Cat. The book is about using the hair cat owners find all over their pants, coats, couches and beds to make finger puppets, book covers, tote bags, pin cushions and other crafts. She points out the best months for hairballs (April and May) and that you shouldn’t shave your cat to get the hair.

Actually, the whole “shave your cat” part creates my favorite visual image.

I’m starting off the week with this priceless information for a reason.

If Ms. Tsutaya can fantasize a shave-your-cat hobby that can eventually be turned into a Burberry rain coat no idea you have is too outrageous to be considered.

Hey, I’m jumping out of airplanes at 60-years old. If I can do that your dreams are possible, too.

What dream have you bounced around for years? What practical step can you take this week that would at least give you a feel for making it real?

You’re sitting at a computer right now, take a moment and Google something that has to do with your desire or idea. That’s a practical step.

Shave your cat…I just love that.
