Tiny bundle of adorableness, or BASKET OF MURDER?? You be the judge.
Things made with real fur end up on the “horrors” shelf far, far too easily. This is not an ethical judgement on fur, though using scraps of bunny fur to make a basket of itty bitty tiny kittens does seem a little shady somehow. No, when bits and pieces of a living creature have seen heavy wear, ended up going through a washer, been savaged by spaniels or ruined by rugrats, they add a special sort of pathos to the final product. Then, when clerks slap a $1.99 sticker on it, they gain a new sense of tragedy, a context to their original owner’s death. Mmm, delicious tragedy.
Were their tiny little kitten noses gnawed off by mice? Is this the first of a race of eyeless cave-cats? Are they content?
The one in front at least doesn’t look very happy. It looks a bit like an extremely hairy elderly man trying to chew a Tootsie Roll with only his front three teeth. An elderly man who is so very old that his nose has been replaced by a piece of either flint or chert, because cosmetic surgery wasn’t as advanced in 1830 as it is now.
I’m still not sure how many kittens we’re facing off with. Poor wording there. There looks to be two little kittens, with three little bodies. Bad enough that we’ve lost our faces, someone’s completely lost its head. I tried to find it in the $.99 bin, but…no luck. I don’t know what I would have done if I hadfound it, an apology just doesn’t seem adequate.
