Looks great Martin. Did you use a metal flake beverage cozy? I got several of them at the local craft store with glitter on them. Chartreuse, pink, purple, and black. These are so durable it's amazing. Even the snot rockets (pickerel) can't chew them up.
Warmer weather? What is that? It was -2 with wind chills at -25 here this morning.
Havent seen the metal flake ones Bill. I bought about a dozen of cozies at a garage sale. Sports bar went out of business and they were available in orange, red chartreuse and yellow. I thought ...bass bugs... and plopped down two bucks.
Here's a tip to avoid that " nasty look" BK. Use a fine hair brush available at the dollar store on Mr. Kitty. You can brush the whole cat and get enough underfur to last a season. My Maine Coon cat was a big boy with a dark coat. You need a soft grayish brown dubbing that spins like a dream (who doesn't), this or maybe I should say "he" was it. LOL
