It is in a neat 19 cm by 20 cm paperback format and is packed to the brim with cute kitty photos - which you would expect of course but being another cat obsessive, it is fun seeing a craft book dedicated to kitty cats! The book is based around felting techniques with the cat hair. There are ten projects and most of them use needle felting to decorate a felt or woollen item with an image of a cat. A couple of them, such as making a cat hair finger puppet and the project where you apply the finger puppet to a felt box, use a wet felting technique. You get help and instruction for both these techniques, although you may need some previous experience of felting with fur or at least some crafty common sense as some of the instructions are a little short. As Kaori herself points out, cat hair isn't quite like sheep wool so it is good for decorating projects but you would not be able to make a usable bag from it for example. Some of the projects include a decorated coin purse, some really cute kitty badges and kitty cat portraits, and some great scarf, hat and glove decorations. All projects come with step-by-step instructions and some come with pictures to help you with some of the stages. The book's greatest strength is in the details of how to groom and care for your cat with an aim to collect cat hair and have a happy, well-groomed cat of course! It answers some of your catty questions from what to do about pests, when the best time to harvest cat hair is and to how to look after the projects you have decorated with the cat hair. There are patterns, materials lists and handy tips throughout. I loved the section where you get to meet the cat hair contributors - cute touch! --Craftymakes, December, 2011
the author guides us on a creative journey that teaches readers how to adorn such items as badges, hats, pincushions, tote bags and even portraits. If you have an aboundance of cat hair you're not sure what to do with, this could be the stocking filler for you! --The Cat Magazine, December, 2011

tldr: a great joke present, but also a serious guide. Recommended for anyone with an overly-furry feline and/or a passion for slightly off-piste crafting activities.
So I presume you could give it to someone who is actually serious about crafting with cat hair too.
Some great ideas and fun to be had. Would highly recommend for any crafty and cat lovers!
