  3. Glue the ends of the body together to make a teardrop shape.
  4. Glue the cats front legs to the front of the body, then glue each hind leg to the bottom.

  7. Glue the face to the body.
  8. Wrap the tail around a rounded pencil to create a soft curl and then glue the tail on to the cat’s bottom.
