I Vant To Suck Your Blood!

I got a very unusual request a week or so ago for one of the stray cats I make for my Etsy shop. The lady is a good customer of mine, and she has a cat-loving daughter who is going to college. Her daughter is a huge fan of the Twilight series of books. She requested a cat that incorporated the daughter's favorite character - Edward Cullen.

How in the world was I going to make a vampire inspired cat that resembled a hunk in the movies? Here is what I designed!

It just happened that this is Stray Cat #13! He resembles Edward in his slender body and pale fur that glistens in the sunlight. He has bronze hair, and his topaz eyes are starting to turn dark which happens when he consumes blood! He has high cheekbones and a crooked smile, and proudly wears his family's crest around his neck.

He sits on a base that incoporates the covers from all four books:

Apple from Twilight
Ruffled tulip from New Moon
Broken red ribbon from Eclipse
Chessboard from Breaking Dawn

Her daughter will have nothing to fear with this kitty around!

This is TOO FUNNY Laura! Have you read the books?

That is why this was a challenge for me - I've never read the books!

I've never read the Twilight series but I think that kitty is just so cute! Her daughter is going to love it!
