Made it Monday!

I am not feeling very accomplished right now so this maybe a hard post to write! Hopefully it will be cathartic! As part of blogging101 I have decided to take part in this Made it Monday event every week for at least four weeks. This is week 2.

So what did i achieve last week? I managed to do a session on balloon modelling (something which I tend to find hard to make time for!) and tried out my goat castrators. Don’t be scared, these are a tool that balloon artist use to put things inside balloons, in my case confetti. I even tried them out on the weekend, it looked quite pretty! Here is a picture of this tool with an elastic band on


Hopefully you can get an idea of how they work for balloon modellers! Here are some shots of what it can look like

A truly awful product. Rectal Jewellery for cats.

I never thought I’d see the day when I read “you can now buy a jewel that covers your cats rectum” and yet there it was, will an advert including a real cat walking around with a jewel on its bum. Complete with hideous jingle.

You can see the original blog post here

That poor cat. I think people need to get over themselves, if they are seeing their cats bum, its because their cat is happy! Cats put their tails up with joy! And sure a cat bum in face as they turn round isn’t brilliant, but its part of having a cat.

Plus I think that most cats responses to having something around their tail will be to try and get it off again, rather than walking around being slapped on the behind.

Just in case you haven’t heard the horror here it is again-
