coffins are a necessity

this isn't so much a 'craft project' insomuch as i put a thing in another thing and called it a day, but it was much more successful than i thought it would be.
i got this coffin from work--it was a display for something ages ago and had been in the back office ever since, so my boss said that i could take it home. i wasn't sure what to do with it until my coworker suggested i turn it into a cat bed.
i didn't do much to it other than stuff a wedding dress from a thrift store in there--i don't know why, but oscar loves sleeping on the thing. perhaps the satin keeps him cool. regardless, i wore the dress once for a halloween costume and stained it with fake blood, so i didn't really have any use for it anymore. 
this was how it was for a while, and how i expected it to go--cats never seem to sleep where you want them to. women and cats will do as they please
but then he got sorta used to it! 
 i think he was still feeling it out here, because he doesn't look that most comfortable.
 but he really likes it!
 i keep taking pictures because ITS TOO CUTE 
i love it because of my many nicknames for him, one of my favourites is 'my little vampire'
partly as a (sort of cruel, but he cant speak english, so its okay right?) joke because shortly after he came into my life he had to get nearly all of his teeth removed because he had a terrible gum infection and tooth rot
but partly because i'm fairly sure if he were a person he would be lestat de lioncourt

He is so adorable! And such a cutie in his little coffin! I definitely will have to make coffin pet beds for my future furbabies!
