Needle Felted Kitty

Pocket mouse: now with whiskers!

This cat looks more at home in the snow. I like how its pose came out, it looks super intent and sneaky. I think it’s an adolescent cat that’s building up its hunting skills.

This was my first animal with whiskers — they’re made of embroidery thread slid through beeswax. I liked the effect and added some to the pocket mouse as well.

The tortoise shell coloring isn’t super realistic, but I kind of like it. The face seems a little off — maybe too much black around the eyes? Is the nose too short? I’m not sure.
