This is a serious question. I brush my longhaired cat daily and remove an abundant amout of fur. The other night we had a tailor over to our house and she commented on the beautiful coat that Persi had and asked me what I was doing with all of the fur I was removing. Well, I had been just throwing it away but she told me that she could make a most beautiful sweater or even coat out of the fur if I would save it. Of course I would have to save it for quite some time but I remove two handfuls daily and the tailor predicted within a year that she could make something truly beautiful. So now I am thinking, would this be sick or would it in fact be quite the tribute to your cat to announce to people that you were wearing your cat? There are a lot of people that object to fur coats but it seems to me this is different, I have to remove the fur daily anyway so why not save it? So, I am saving it, I do not know if I will ever do anything with it but DW tells me she would be proud to wear something like that. What do you think? I would be greatly influenced by what TCS members thought about this.
