Muskehound RedCoatCat


Shops and things are opening up, and I think it's polite and considerate to other people to wear a mask, as well as making me feel slightly safer. (I felt rude when I had my eyes tested and the staff were masked up while I wasn't.)

The one I ordered a month ago failed to arrive (a free replacement is on its way), but when I saw that one of my favourite designers was selling masks made from her fabric designs, I ordered one of those too. I reckon this will be going on for a while, and it will be good to have options.

I'm very pleased with this; the cats on red and orange 1960s chairs is obviously perfect for me (I already own it on a cushion cover), and the mask itself seems good quality. The front has a soft vinyl feel, the back is cotton, with a slot for a disposable filter (two are included), and there are plastic toggles so you can adjust the elastic round your ears.

(I'm sad that people can't see me smiling, but perhaps they can tell from my eyes. Or perhaps...perhaps not everyone wants me to smile at them!?)
