Cats Indoor Play Equipment

This is my cats play equipment. They are weighted down with weights because they have a tendency to fall over. They are in the family room that is also the computer/sewing/exercise room and on wet weather days has washing hanging and draping from all surfaces.

Monkey Marionette

This monkey is going to be a marionette. I need the arms and legs not to be floppy or too heavy so i have decided to make a skeleton of the limbs. They are made from coat hanger wires and the elbow/knees will be a brass ring that i had in my bits and pieces of jewelery beads. I need to make 4 of these. Two for the arms and two for the legs. They will be positioned just inside the limbs. I have not yet decided if the limbs will be stuffed or not.
