It's like I'm in a Fisher Price Little People Mafia: just when I think I'm out, they pull me back in!  This diorama ornament is for The ManFlesh's aunt who isn't a crazy cat lady, but last I heard she and her partner were fostering 16 cats (including 2 litters of kittens).  They only have 3 cats of their own.



That's her and her partner covered in cats!  I took lots of pics, because there are lots of cats (but only a dozen!) and plenty of silly, funny details.



Those little pranksters have gotten ornaments off the tree! One on the coffee table and one on the floor between the chairs!



I even got a star on top of the tree this time~



Views through the windows:

I could not get an in-focus and well-lit picture of the black one behind her chair. It's got an ornament off the tree, too! 



This one is even cheekier!



I could not resist adding a tiny pink cat butt to one of them!



And view of the whole thing in the front



And a bit of how the windows look from the outside.



I still need to add a little something to make the place where the loop is inserted into the sphere look nice, but I haven't found that thing yet.  I keep thinking snow-ish, but they don't get snow where they live.  Maybe I can find a star in my stash.

How totally cute. And my black cats have pink butts. too Grin

Could you try wrapping the cord with some thin wire, for just a quarter inch or so? Like making a beauty-cuff style thing, only way smaller? Like a "Barbie bracelet" around the base of the cord. Just a thought. A large sequin might be an idea, too. You could make one from a pie plate. And aluminum will also sharpen your scissors  Grin
