I have a friend who has all kinds of animals. She has some snakes, boas, this would be great to make for her! Have you got one for birds? She has beautiful parrots, but a nice bird would do. Thanks for the clear instructions and pics.

Good, sturdy construction instructions, but I don't understand the need for the cheese cloth. I wouldn't throw away the tops of the bottles. Cut off a few centimetres below the screw-on top. This makes an excellent seal for plastic bags containing, e.g. cat food, temporary supplies of coffee, sugar, powdered milk, etc. to take when you go camping, picnics, etc. Just insert the top of the bag through the top of the bottle from the bottom of the neck, fold over the bag tightly over the thread, and screw on the top. Keeps out moisture, ants, flies, cockroaches and any other undersirable goggas. Joyce
