Tell Your Cat to Behave Or It Might Wind Up A Purse
December 15, 2008
We have covered some strange things for SheFinds, but this one might take the cake. According to the clip above, you can now stop wondering what happens to your Persian cat’s fur when they shave it down at the vet. A creative little soul decided to spin the fur into yarn and turn it into handbags. We would go into more detail but the clip really says it all.
Does it hiss if you get it near water? Is it self-cleaning? Would it scratch someone if they tried to steal your wallet? How sturdy can a bag made of your cat’s downy fur really be, never mind that it’s just icky?
Can we please (please!) offer some suggestions for those who are seeking a woven bag look without having to recycle your pet’s unwanted fur? How about this cute Urban Outfitters Sweater Weather Hobo Bag ($30) or for some additional bank, this gorgeous Rafe New York Dark Taupe Knit Frame Shoulder Bag ($189)?
Whatever you choose to do with your cat’s hair is totally up to you, we know. But don’t expect us to like it.
