What to make with cat hair DIY

Our two cats adore getting their hair brushed! I simply have to say "who wants to go to the hairdressers" and they come a'runnin. As they're housecats, I can certainly notice when those spring months are on their way and they start to lose their winter coats, it just gets everywhere. So I try to brush them as often as I can.
Now, being of the 'oh, I can make something with that' type, the mass amounts of soft kitty fur I was throwing away seemed like such a waste, so I kept it. In a plastic bag, In a cupboard.

Then one day I was at my Mum and Dad's giving our family cat a haircut (he used to get quite matted in the summer) and I did as I always had, rolled the excess fur into a ball in my hand so it was easier to stack up. Then it dawned on me, these cute little cat fur balls (I appreciate how odd that reads) are the thing I can do with all that leftover fur.

From then on, each time the salon opened, I rolled up as much fur as I could and found a fancy jar to keep it in.

Well there we go. The perfect answer to what to do with all that excess cat hair. This jar actually freaks out my husband, he thinks it's weird. I love it though, I think it's a nice keepsake.
Our family cat passed away a few years ago now, but in an out of the ordinary way, I can still stroke him whenever I like, I see him every day and he will always hold a place in my heart. The sweet, sweet good boy black Labrador I treasured and shared with my ex lives on in that jar too! Whilst dog hair is harder to ball up, it can be done with a little patience.
