for the ball of wool you could make a ball of fondant (or RKT, if you want a bigger size) and then use a clay extruder to make strings of fondant which you can wrap around the ball like yarn.

Aine2 has some good tutorial videos on making fondant and gumpaste figures on YouTube.

if you don't have a clay extruder, simply roll out strings of fondant and wrap around your ball (either fondant or RKT), i made one for a cat cake (in my pics) and did not have an extruder at the time. i think it still came out okay! as for the cat molding, if you can get to the liabray and look at some clay molding books that helps, i find it easier to work with balls and ovals to begin shapes of animals. someone recently posted tutorial links to all kinds of figures. i will try and find it for you and post the link. thumbs_up.gif
