A cat wearing slippers made from its own fur is gaining popularity online

No matter how much you sweep, vacuum, and dust, it seems that cat hair never truly goes away no matter how much you try to get rid of it and no matter how many lint rollers you might buy. Frankly speaking, you can find it lurking everywhere… in the small cracks of your floor, on top of your furniture, and worse of all—all over your clothes!

As much as it seems impossible to deal with, some cat owners just choose to embrace the shedding as it is and instead put the fallen fur to good use. For example, using it as a material for needle felting! In case you didn’t know, the needle felting technique involves repeatedly poking a special felting needle into a rolled-up wad of fur that’s laid out on a cushion or pad. The barbs on the end of the needle help lock the fur fibers together to create one bigger body.

Both dog and cat hair can be felted due to the presence of scales on the hair shafts as the same felting method can be applied to their fur as well, however, it takes a bit of practice and maybe some more time since the result might not be as smooth as when using wool or another type of hair.

Recently, a cat owner from Japan decided to put her cat’s fur to the test, and the result is almost too cute to bear!

Meet Minira, An Adorable Kitty Who Recently Went Viral


A lot of pet owners have weekly brushing sessions when it comes to their fluffy companions. We mentioned needle felting previously, and we were completely serious about it! Just as serious as Minira’s owner who made the tiny slippers for her cat.

The fur collected from your pet can be stored in a cloth bag because it can mildew if trapped in plastic. After having collected around 4 ounces of pet hair, you can try and wash it gently in a bowl of warm water with either shampoo or dish soap, whichever you prefer or have at hand.


We All Know Cats (And A Lot Of Other Animals) Are Prone To Heavy Shedding And Have A Shedding Season Around Two Times A Year


After the fur is dry, it’s time to hand card it to prepare it completely before it’s ready to use (make sure to mix in wool if the fur is less than 4 inches long) for any bigger projects (like cat-sized slippers)! Sounds fun, right?

Tell us, Pandas, would you try to make any type of needle felting with your pet’s fur? If yes, what would you make out of it? We’d like to see your guesses in the comments down below, and in case you have any creations already, make sure to share them as well!
