Cat is probably the most popular and most favorite pet of many people. Usually it is the first animal of a little baby – it can pat, play, hug. These cats are so different, everyone with its own character, they may snuggle with you for hours, or get away under the sofa and do not even allow to touch them, but still they are nice and gentle creatures.

Glue the head and tail to the body, put it in a horizontal position so that the glue dries, otherwise the head will slide down. Place ears  on head, slightly fork the cardboard at the base, it is better to drop a little glue, so it will be stronger.
