This year, we had a small Christmas, because I bought tickets to the Red Sox-Yankees games next summer in London, and Björn bought us a new television. But we did do some small gifts and stocking stuffers to each other, and Björn’s main gift to me was a 4D Vision Cat Anatomy Model
Well, of course I loved it! In fact, I sat down and assembled it on the spot.
Luckily, living in Sweden has given me a pretty good grasp on navigating pictorial assembly instructions.
But what was really cool was the information included on the instruction sheet. Like random cat factoids.
And cat anatomy illustrated (using pictures of the model’s pieces) along with a felid size comparison chart.
Then there’s a little guide to cat communication and body language, how cats land on their feet, and an illustration of how retractible claws work.
Finally, there’s an organ-by-organ breakdown of all the parts of a cat, again using the model pieces (except for the eye).
Here is my model, completed.
My favourite part is, the model cat is a female! And she has kittens inside! Aren’t they cute? #theylooklikeabys…
Izaak wanted to meet the model.
I don’t think it went well…
…In fact, he seemed a little freaked out. Was it the kittens, Zak?
