My husband and I had a running joke that his cat shed enough fluff to spin into yarn so one year for his birthday I did a whole lot of cat brushing, combed it with wool, and knit him a hat out of “purrbaa” yarn ? (https://anti-quotidian.com/2012/10/08/enquiring-minds-want-to-know/). The cat was not happy but it was an interesting spinning adventure and now, many years later, my husband has a really special memento of his beloved pet ❤️
Also I’ve seen Heidi on Insta so I know she’s ok but what has become of the neurotoxin sweater?!?!
