Paper mache cat for Lily

My family was away for more than two weeks. I used the time to make lots and lots of crafts. Here's one of them: a paper mache cat/container.

I swear by all that's holy it's cuter than it looks in this photo.

I made it by blowing up a balloon and taping it to an empty coffee can, which I'd poured a little plaster into to give it some weight. I paper mached it and then cut a big hole in the back of the head to allow access to the hollow inside for storage. I should've put more mache on first, though, as it didn't want to hold its shape.
