Yes, a book with instructions on how to mine your cat’s fur for dinky little crafty projects actually exists. The title is Crafting with Cat Hair by Japanese author Kaori Tsutaya — translated into English by Amy Hirschman — and it comes with pages of practical advice for collecting cat fur and ideas for the handicraft works you can make.

The possibilities are seemingly endless, ranging from mice finger puppets to random knickknack boxes. We don’t know, it all sounds a bit borderline psychotic, and a prime candidate for the Awful Library Books collection.
