Put Me Down As an Ewwwwww! Person
Is your beloved pet particularly hairy? Does she shed fur all over your clothes and carpet? Well don't let all that soft, luxurious "wool" go to waste! Let Catty Shack Creations transform it into a beautiful accessory!
For the past few years, Catty Shack Creations has been spinning excess dog and cat fur into lovely handbags. Of course, as the company's founder readily admits in the video above, there are some folks (the Ewww People) who find the whole thing disgusting. But the Catty Shack Creations website insists that hair taken from dogs and cats is much cleaner than the wool sheared from sheep.
OK, I buy that, but I don't usually spend a lot of time with sheep. Wouldn't your cat be a little creeped out if you start walking around with a purse made from her hair? And if that thought doesn't bother you, why stop with pets? Why not collect the hair from your sister's hairbrush and have it woven into a scarf?
Perhaps I'm taking this too far. If you're not an Ewww Person, you can order your "Catty Shack Creations" here.
