Christmas Vacation - The Original Fried Cat
What started out as a holiday family gag gift turned into hundreds of sales. Who knew?We are huge National Lampoon Christmas Vacation fans. You can be sure the Bradshaw's know every line and whenever an opportunity presents itself, someone is going to brilliantly integrate it into conversation.
2021: We might be as crazy as Cousin Eddie or as foolish as Clark W Grizwold but we went into major production of these fried pussy cats out of our home. We took over mom's entire dining room and basement. Dad did all of the material shopping, box making and USPS delivery runs. Brother Brian, hand cut each cat rug and mom cut all of the fur into strips or shaved it for the cat body (for hours!) We sustained endless hot glue injuries. At the end of the day, we were exhausted and covered in fur only to get up, start it all over again.
Each rug takes almost 2 hours from start to finish. There are no super powers here and Shark Tank hasn't picked us up ... Additionally, I've been banned from my parents house. They have all gone on strike - I wish I were kidding but...
2022: Today, currently produced by only one set of hands in a kitchen in Greensburg, PA. The rest of Bradshaws are in WI and have zero plans to visit, have changed the locks on their doors and told me not to come back with any cat making supplies. Such a bunch of quitters! Be patients, these damn cats take some time to make.
Regardless... if you want one, order early or pre-order! I will run out of materials, prices will go up and I will run out of steam (and it is only Sept!)
