A grandmother has set up a cottage industry on a remote island making hats out of cat skins.

Open in new window

Robyn Eades, who lives on a Tasmanian island, says her designs are increasingly popular, and she has taken orders from as far away as Siberia.

But although most of her designs are made from the skins of feral cats which roam the island, the trapper who sends her the carcasses admits his haul includes the odd unlucky pet.

Open in new window

Every week she takes delivery of frozen cat carcasses which have been trapped and shot by a local ranger employed to cull the population.

The cats are defrosted and skinned, before being tanned and stitched into winter hats, coat hangers and purses.

Skins with particularly interesting patterns, she sells whole as small rugs.

Ms Eades, 60, said: "I feel like I am saving them from their fate. They are going to live forever in my creations.

One question... can the fur of a dead cat cause Toxoplasma?

The thought of wearing my cat as a scarf is dreadful. I would rather cremate him with full honours than turn him into a scarf or preserve him like a museum exhibit.
