SHOW & TELL



More participants here

A lot of you know that I have a cat collection. The last time Mr. G. counted them was in spring and he counted around 450 cats. But there is still enough room for others to be added.

and these are the last once I added :





I bought this cute cat doll, it has the size of a doll on a flea market. Mom cat carries her kitten in a litt le bag. The dress is with laces and embroideries. Now it has the place of honor on my bed.





These two I bought at a stand for animals in need, they are quite small and in a kind of plaster. One sits behind my keyboard and the other stretches itself in front of my TV.

Since yesterday we also have a mouse who hides somewhere in my room from my 5 living cats. Sometimes it chirpes like a bird, but I couldn't find it yet. Cat Rosie my mouse serial killer must have brought it in and then forgot ! (to be continued.../...)

That is a beautiful Cat doll, the lace dress is lovely. I can't believe 5 cats can't find Mr Mouse. They are too well fed probably.

Oh Gattina, I can't believe it. In a house full of cats that little mouse has balls! Two humans bailed up...hahahahaha!

Totally love them!!!

Melli said...

Ugh! I hate mice in the house! I hope Rosie remembers it soon!

Gattina - I love your new cats! I saw soooooooo many cats at the ArtFest last weekend that I just WANTED to buy for you... all original, one of a kinds! It breaks my heart that I can't afford the gift AND the postage to get them to you! (it's that darn postage!) I can't help but see a cat and think ... "you belong with Gattina"... I know they DO... I think they know it too! It's so sad...

I hope the mouse doesn't get into any of your kitchen drawers.

That just freaked me out last year. And I had to scour it out and everything else that was in it.

We had a cat, named Mousers, that would do this. Bring them in and loose them. What a darling doll and baby, that stretching one made me do a double take. Love your colors.

Now that is a remarkable collection. It helps to keep you young.
Good luck with the mouse.
