Saturday Photo Hunt #27: FAKE/FAUX


FAKE!


The Saturday Photo Scavenger Hunt theme for this week is FAKE, but I prefer to call it FAUX instead!

We've got lots of fake stuff: Fake mice to play with, fake plants ('cuz we munch on the real ones!), fake wood furniture from Sauder®, some fakey-fakey diamond earrings, an' even fake butter in the 'fridge!

Let me tell you 'bout our FAVORITE fake ...

A couple of months ago, Mom made us a kitty bed (kinda like a hammock) out of some plastic sprinkler system pieces and two-thirds of a yard of fleecy fabric that she found at Wal*Mart. The fabric that she bought was a black-and-white leopard print, but no leopards were injured in the making of the fabric.

She liked the results so much that she made three more beds: One for Benjamin, one for Perla and Gus to share, and one for Zoey and the Furballs to share. They have the leopard print, too.

Well, Feline American Cocoa Puff LOVED the kitty bed so much that he slept on it efurry day. He wore out the leopard fabric. Or, more accurately, he stretched a hole in the stitching holding the bed cover together. He was furry unhappy that he had broken his bed, so Mom went back to Wal*Mart for another piece of fabric ... and she found THIS! It's FAUX tiger an' we like it even better!

You could sell these! And sell so many of them! Do they come in people size??

Michele said...

Oh, that bed would be just perfect for my kitty, I think but he is just so big, he'd probably need extra extra jumbo size to fit. Great post for the theme!

i'm glad you got your hammock repaired. how sad to have to be without.

dmm, mom looked at the post below, shivered, and kept right on going below or above. she wouldn't read it or look at the pictures. ick. we don't like spiders in any shape or form. don't even like to be teased about them. uh uh.

otherwise, your blog is looking great! i'm glad you're back above 50 in the top 100. we've dropped below 100. it's ok though. i've loved the time i've had with her to just snuggle...and i wouldn't trade it for a higher rating. mol

love
