Very interesting and intricate detail in his work ... I don't think any of my kitties would care to 'dress up' though. :)

This is like a medieval version of Dinner for Schmucks. A Steve Carell movie where his character makes dioramas using mice. We saw it in the theater. The Pudge loves that movie. The Mrs walked out in the middle of it.

Splendid! This completely eclipses his "catamaran" series from the last show.
