When I announced that we wanted fans of Quirk to send us in their cat hair, I wasn't kidding. Crafting with Cat Hair comes out in November, and we're getting ready, practicing our felting skills.
In fact, Katie Hatz and Margaret McGuire have been keeping themselves busy, working with a wealth of kitty fur that's appeared in the Quirk Books mailroom.
What's the source of all the fur? Well, Christina Yendall was the first to send in batches of cat hair from her three beloved kitties, Buster, Shadow and Fuzz.
We like to thank all the little people (and cats) whenever we can, so we're posting photos of these lovely cats here on the blog. Christina and Co., we thank you!
Interested in sending in your cat hair? We're still accepting submissions, and we'll happily post your kitties on here too! Details on Jezebel.

We teamed up with our good friend Justin Lutsky over at Epic Image Entertainment for another fantastic book trailer. You might remember Justin from such book trailers as Night of the Living Trekkies. Watch as he brings poor Gregor Samsa to life.
The video has already found its way to Entertainment Weekly, I Can Haz Cheezburger, Neatorama, Mental Floss, Galley Cat, NY Mag, and Geeks of Doom! Thanks to everyone who has covered it, and to all of you who continue to share it.
