Cats and Cacti Craft Feature

Fri May 9, 2014, 5:15 PM


Your official Artisan Crafts group


  What do cats and cacti have to do with each other? Absolutely nothing,  until last week. Months ago I found a tiny cactus in my garden (tinier than my pinky finger's nail), I planted it in a small pot and took care of it. It was perfectly fine and healthy, until one of my cats, Lili, decided that she hated it and it needed to die. From that moment, no matter where I put the little cactus, she would find it and drop it, depot it and scarce the soil until the roots were naked. I know it's the cactus, because she's never done that with any other plants, pots or objects.

With that random story in mind, and in the memory of my little cactus, here's a feature of crafted cats and cacti. Spot the cactus cake! Also, I really want a cactus pin cushion now :heart: what a great idea!

Aw, I'm sorry your kitty and your cactus did not get along. ^^;
But this is a very nice collection of crafts! :heart: I'm totally with you. I want a cactus pin cushion now! Like, yesterday. :D
The fairy-winged cat pendants are beautiful, too.

Thank you for the feature!
And also for the warning. I might have a cat soon, so I better keep my cactus full of pins safely away from it :)

Cats are amazingly fun, but make sure to keep everything that looks dangerous away from their reach :) they help you stay organized! Have fun with your cat :love:

Your cat might be on to something; some cultures say that a cactus will bring very ill luck to their owners...

One of my cats ate one of my cacti and pushed others from my terrace to the back yard. From that moment on I called him catus kitecactus (I think that was about the same time as a commercial for cat food where cat was dubbed catus kitekatus). It has nothing to do with crafts, but your introductory story reminded me of this.

There is a mythological creature called a cactus cat, so cats and cacti aren't entirely unrelated.Black Cat
