Hats for cats

Ah, Easter time again.. perhaps my favourite of the holidays, having grown up in an irreligious household. To me it means five days in a row off work and all the buns and chocolate I can eat!
One habit I've never really grown out of is playing with the tin-foil wrappers from easter eggs. Last weekend I was making little hats for my cat out of them, so I thought I'd share some of that simple pleasure.


  1. Carefully flatten out the foil, coloured side down.
    Place a small vase, cup, glass or similar object in the centre.


  2. Smooth the foil down evenly over your form.


  3. Fold the foil up perpendicular from the edges, to make a brim.


  4. Fold the edges down over on themselves, keeping an even radius from the centre.


  5. Remove the foil from your form and tuck all excess foil up inside.


  6. et voila! the finished article.


  7. Place the hat upon your cat when he or she isn't looking.



I'd love to post photos of other peoples' cats in tin-foil hats here, so if you're so inclined, send them to me: rapitinui at gmail dot com.

Hahahaha!

I might actually buy some easter eggs rather than just getting a block of chocolate this year.

Wow, that's way better than my usual use for those things, which is making tiny cranes and littering them all over the house. My cat is so getting a variety of festive headwear for easter!

A slim, wide-eyed mygamegoldwoman almost human in virbanksfeatures eyed agamegold the pair. Her nose was sharp, but very elegant. She had tbcgold a pale, trade4gamebeautiful face the color of ivory, and veryge for hair she wore a wondrous mane of downy feathers. Her gown fluttered as she walked—on two delicate worldofgolds but still sharply-taloned feet. “Awake, awake you are,” she said with a pvp365 slight frown. “You should rest, rest.” Krasus bowed to her. “I am ezmmorpg grateful for your ighey hospitality, mistress, but I am well enough to continue on9a9z now.” She cocked her head as a bird might, giving the mageltk365 a reproving look. “No, no…too soon, toogold4guild soon.

Malfurion waited for Krasus, who finally nodded and sat.
