Couch Potato & Tigger

My Bench grinder died and when I took it apart the shields looked like cat faces. Added them to old fuel filter canisters, valve springs, RR spikes, spider gears, timing chain, and a part from my SS Box to make 100% recycled kittens.
Couch Potato is an indoor Lap Cat, his short legs are sufficient to waddle from couch to cat bowl and back. His eyes are spider gears with the gear faces painted purple. I kept moving him around because I couldn't get a pose where his eyes showed the color or depth in a photo.

What happy cats!! They are both VERY cute! Especially like the orange one with his bright blue eyes and even the pads on his feet! Great job!

How in the world you could see a CAT from dismantling your bench grinder!!! Love your recycling! FUN! These would be great in a 'children's garden,' too! Keep 'enjoying' your good work! (I do!) TFS! Jeanne S.

I bet the black one is really great looking in person with purple eyes! Orange one with blue eyes is interesting too, amazing that your tool had "2 cat faces" You put them to good use! Jan
