This diminutive feline has got it all: whimsical face, theorem painted body AND a red ball!  I haven’t even mentioned his very playful body shape.

Sweet kitty measures a mere 4 inches in length and stands 1 ½ inches tall with a tail upsweep of about 2 inches. 

He is fashioned out of cotton batting shaped over a wire frame.  Those of you who are familiar with this type of construction know that he is actually a German Christmas ornament, and a very rare one at that!   His burgundy cotton hanger is evidence of that.  Cotton batting ornaments are highly prized and sought after with kitties being among the hardest to find. Nonetheless, this “special” find has had a a place of prominence in my cat collection.

Purchased at the NHADA show, this is a very special and highly prized piece in that it satisfies many different types of collecting obsessions from cats to Christmas…I just loved him because he was just purr-fect!  You will too.
