This is a test of my first attempt at making my own dead cat (some people call them "fuzzies" "rodents" "fluffies" and other things) for my Zoom H4 from faux fur from a fabric store. Commercial units are pretty expensive ($30-170+) for what they are. For $8 I bought two yards of faux fur, enough to make 40+ of the things.
I redid this adding video and my voice rather than just the fan noise and stills from the original video.
I think the homemade dead cat worked surprisingly well. Are the commercial ones better? I have no idea. Photos of the fur and dead cat are on the right, below.
