It started out as a two balloon cat with a scrap but has now gone to being made from four balloons.
The complimentary bags of balloons we send out with orders will have enough for you to make the cat for May.

I will be posting up the instructions tomorrow for the cat,
here is a slightly different version with no pinch twist in the centre of the head.

And in Black and White.

Plus one with a 260 tail and the cat is only 2 balloons and a scrap.

Inflate the orange 260 and leave 6 fingers un-inflated, make a 3 finger bubble followed
by a 4 finger bubble and a 1.5 finger pinch twist which will be the first ear.

You then need two small 1 finger bubbles and another 1.5 finger pinch twist for the second ear.

Make another 4 finger bubble for the other side of the face and lock into place.

You then need two 6 finger bubbles, the second twist locks in under the head section.

The back section of the body needs to be a 7 finger bubble followed by a 1 finger pinch twist.
This helps to hold the tail in place later.

Then make a 3 finger bubble and twist in between the two front legs.
Make another 3 finger bubble and twist into the pinch twist.
Deflate and discard the rest of the balloon.

Inflate the Ivory 260 leaving 7/8 fingers un-inflated.
The mouth section needs two 1 finger pinch twists and then one 1.5 finger pinch twist.
The larger pinch twist is the bottom section of the mouth.

Then make a 1 finger spacer bubble followed by a 3 finger fold twist for the first cheek.
Make another 3 finger fold twist for the second cheek.

You now have to twist the Ivory balloon into the joint for the head and body of the cat.

Next are two 3 finger bubbles for the cat's eye's.

The first 3 finger bubble from the orange balloon sits in between the two 4 finger face bubbles.
Pull the knot tightly up over/between the two 1 finger top of the head bubbles and push this
through the centre of the two eye bubbles.

I then pull the knot down into the head/body section for a secure fit.
