I'm sure most of you know of the Lolcats phenomenon - you take a picture of a cat and add a caption in kittin English.

Well, one of my favourites (besides monorail cat) is ceiling cat.

When I found out that there was a papercraft version - one you could make at home using only scissors and glue - well, I had to have one. Here is a direct link to the instructions and template to print out.

Fifteen minutes, some glue and a bit of sellotape later, here's my results :

Personally, I think this is a great idea. If you like it, why not make one of your own and put pictures up here?

Your caption should read:

"Ceiling cat is watching me eat cheese"

You know, because you're from France :p

"Ceiling cat is watching me surrender to the Germans."

Oh snap! :p

Someday I swear I'm going to try this papercraft stuff because it looks really cool.

Teeb I thought that you were Scottish?

I am! I'm just living in France at the moment.

Plus, if people think I'm French it means they immediately start going on about cheese-eating surrender monkeys, which is endlessly amusing...

So has the paper ceiling cat fallen apart yet? It was made in France after all.

One of my friends put one above his desk and put a caption that says ceiling cat is watching you procrastinate.

Papercraft is quite a good waste of time :lol:

Haven't done a ceiling cat, but I did a dragon and started another one in reverse and without lines. It's about 30 inches tall and about a bazillion hours with an x-acto knife to cut out the pieces for the head :?

It's nothing any of you couldn't do. Just takes lots of patience and the ability to work with small little fold of paper.

Nabster that is just epic.

No, it would be upside down and on fire.
