Not only is it a cat, it’s a useful cat–this is The Devil’s Pet from London-based artist Thorunn Arandottir and it’s ten kinds of awesome. Not only does the candle itself have a sleek elegant design (a bit reminiscent of ArgonautResins’ Mini Tuttz, no?) but when you burn it… that’s when the fun starts. Because tucked away inside is a small metal sculpture of, you guessed it, a cat skeleton! And the wick is a ball of yarn. I don’t think it’s possible for these to be more amazing!
