Good job it looks nice. I don’t know if you will ever get a bird to go in a cats mouth but nobody said it had to be functional haha. It really looks good and nice detail work.

I agree with Blakep-very nicely done. I think the birds will like it-one way to get back at the cats.

On some level, this is just so wrong. Does it attract suicidal birds? Really, I like the idea. It is just twisted enough to be quite funny. Well don on the execution too.

hahaha totally cute.

All these cute cat birdhouse makes me wonder if someone should make the reverse – where the bird flies out of the cat’s bottom! ;)

Hi Mike,
I love this cat and would like to do one myself. Did you make the pattern? Would you mind sharing?
You did an awesome job!

That’s a good one, Mike. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a cat bird house. Nice work.
