This was requested by my wife, who is a HUGE LOLCats fan. The ”I Can Has Cheezburger?” Cat!
This fluffy beast was the one who started the entire atom bomb of pictures on the internet.

At first, I thought this guy wasn’t going to be too hard to cut – I knew I wanted to do a “negative space” image, which is where the image floats on the felt, and had done a different one in the past with hardly any issues but this guy turned out WAY harder than I thought!!!!
The chestnut I picked out was really brittle and the pieces wound up tiny – not a good combination to say the least!
There are five floating pieces in this portrait – the tiniest of which only measures a half inch long and less than 1/16” wide. The whiskers are less than 1/16” wide as well.
The piece measures around 6 inches square overall and is 1/8” thick.
Finish consists of a soak in lemon oil and fastened to thick felt backing.
