Mummifying a Cat

Don't worry.  It's not Percy.
As part of our Ancient Egypt studies, we checked out an 'Egyptian craft book' from the library.  Alex flipped through it and decided that she wanted to create a mummified cat.  So that's what we did.
 We tore and dyed some dishtowels with teabags for an aged look.  Then Alex set to work making the sarcophagus.
 She used photographic sources from two other books to model her cat after.  I think he's pretty cute.  Updates to follow!
