So most of you know by now that I have a cat.  For his entertainment while we're away we put a bird feeder outside the window next to his cat-tree.  It's most frequent patrons are chickadees, so I got inspired. 
His legs are wire wrapped in yarn.

Hehehe... cat's next plaything! It's adorable, you should throw it round the room and see if your cat tries to catch it   Grin

You wouldn't consider selling one of those would you?  I have a girlfriend who would pee her pants if I gave that to her.

Me thinks you watch them birds too.  Your chickadee is absolutely awesome!  The shape, the coloring - oh yes you have a good touch with the felting needle.

How sweet!!  I love your little birdie!

We used to call our birdfeeder kitty television because it gave the kitties something to watch.

Aww, thanks everybody!  So glad you like.  Yes, Grace O. is right, I do spend more time looking at the birds than the cat.  I'm actually thinking of doing a "series", goldfinches, cardinals, bluejays, etc.

Some answers: he's larger than life size, only took about four days, and yes, I would sell it if the offer was right.  That is the intent anyway, husband is getting overwhelmed with all the wool around...

I love the little chickadee. It looks so realistic.

Chickadees are my favorite little birds, so I am getting a tattoo of one very soon.
