Instructions

  • Turn the tomato cage upside down and bend down the stakes.

  • Use wire tie to secure ends to top.
  • Place hat on top.
  • Place glasses appropriately, it can be stuck through the plastic wrap or taped to it.

Notes

Keep the cuz out of your cat’s reach. I proudly put my new decoration on the kitchen table and went to get my camera, I came back to a hula mess on the kitchen floor. Herbie could not resist for a minute, he had cousin it on the floor in pieces and was still torturing his prey.
