Needle felted weightlifting cat

This little guy was needle felted then I added a wooden weight bar. He has a magnet in his base to help him hold still while lifting (his arm move). He also sat on an automata base so you could turn a crank to watch him lift, but evidently I gifted him without taking a picture of that part.

It was a valentine secret gift to a friend who loves cats and cross fit.


He’s so darn cute!!

Neat-o! How does he move, the tail going down makes the arms go up?

No, just his arms. A little wire runs up to his left elbow to go up and down.
