yeah that would work :thumbup: :lol: :lol: :clap:

Yep it does work... but only as long as their next bath or next moult depending on the colourant used. The unsuspecting buyers get at least a day's pleasure from their gaudy new acquisition....but apparently they're as cheap as chips any way. :roll:
