    It would be great if you include photos of the pet source just for the fun part.

    I've "harvested" some black dubbing from the cat, been through a few prototypes, and finally decided on a pattern.

    So I'll be cranking out the clones in the next couple of days and will get them in the mail early next week.

    Here are the pics of the "pets". I called the fly an "Anned Graceful Budder fly" to fit the names of the mammals fur that I used.
