Not long ago, I saw a book in my local yarn store called Crafting with Cat Hair by Kaori Tsutaya. Seriously, a whole book devoted to using your cat's hair for craft projects! I added the book to my Amazon wishlist and decided that at some point, I would buy it, brush down Oreo, and get crafty with his black and white fur.
Not only are there books on this, there are also groups on Ravelry! A Feline Twist-Spinning Cat Hair and Spinning from Pets and Plants are just a few I've found so far. Information on spinning cat fur, YES PLEASE! When I told my husband about these groups on Ravelry, he said "You just bought a spinning wheel so you could spin Oreo's fur, didn't you?" Not entirely, but a little guilty as charged there honey.
Guess it's time to start collecting his hair and, eventually, spin it up! I'll let you know how that goes. :)
