Creatures made from felt!

This is my second attempt to felt an animal. My good friend taught me the basics of using a felting needle, wool and some batting to shape and color into animals. This is my frog;

I plan to put him on a felt water lilly pad, but will have to wait a bit. Sorry the photo quality is bad; taken late at night, no natural lighting.

New Creature~! a Siamese Cat.

My mom has a Saimese cat. He is named "Kitty Boy". He has a silver kind of coat, with some tabby like striping. I thought I'd do an image of him, but am now wondering about the so-called stripes I started to put on his back. Do you think I should nix them and just make him smooth, like a more traditional Siamese?

I want to figure out how to use fishing line to make whiskers for him

He is NOT finished. Suggestions?

Needless to say, this is a "charicature", not a super realistic cat.

A picture of a cat with similar markings would help us to decide to keep or not.
