Unfortunately, I come from an ohana (family) of Pōpoki (cat) lovers & just as I had finished making this "the first time", one of my little furry balls of love decided to cut me off as I carried it to another room to photograph. I was literally heartbroken as I tripped & fell, hitting "Animal" on the wall, cracking & breaking it into five pieces.
It took me a few weeks to get up the courage to look at the remnants of this labor of love (hot glue burns the skin!). When I finally was able to examine it without crying, I realized that my youngest son's favorite saying might actually be true: "Duct tape fixes everything!"
Yes, Duct tape comes in white & it does adhere to styrofoam. More importantly, hot glue adheres to Duct tape! So, after several days of intensive surgical repairs, "Animal" is once again one whole piece.
I hope you love him as much as I do. ♥
