DIY: Whisker Mug

Recently there appears to be an obsession with mustaches. Apparently, throwing a mustache on any object adds instant sex appeal and an air of debonair. I am not anti-mustachio, however this trend seems to be played out. What is sexier, sassier, classier, and more debonair than a cat? Nothing. It is possible to maintain your achieved level of sex appeal by dawning this game changing whisker mug. Mee-ow!
