I captured a pesky Cornish Piskie and put her in a box.



Very dangerous of me to remove the lid, I could have lost a finger! Thanks to a nibble of cake, she was appeased for a short while and I was only nipped at twice. The lid, once again, is firmly in place.



The box measures just 5" tall so she's quite tiny. She is made from polymer clay (which doesn't like me or my hot hands one bit) Her antenna are single strands of fur. Between the particular red of the box, reflections in the glass on the front and the size of the piece... it was a nightmare to photograph. Grrrrr.

She seems to be quite happy in her nest! What a wonderful treasure you captured.

Did you make the box?

That is such a cool idea, and you did a beautiful job!  I'm curious about the box, too!

The box was a plain box from the dollar store. I painted, distressed it, and added some feet to it.  Smiley
