I'm really not a crazy cat lady, but I can't remember a time in life when I didn't enjoy the intriguing company of at least one cat, and often times more than one. (During my high school years, we actually had 120 acres to roam and enjoy, with - at one point - a near dozen cats, almost as many dogs, a few horses, pigs, chickens, a cow... Oh, sorry. My two cats now remind me this is supposed to be about them and their kind, and I've gotten sorely off track.)
With decades of whiskers, purrs and kneading paws, it seems only natural that my collecting interests and decor would reflect a bit of my adoration for my furry friends. Some might know and share this place by heart, and if you do, you know it's a place with a full, happy heart. If you've never been here and simply don't understand, then I recommend you at least give it a try; there's a reason people with pets live longer!
So, whether the focal point is cats, dogs, horses or some other animal kingdom inspiration, cheers to the love for our furry friends!
And now we return our attention back to CATS! Introducing some of my companions, we have (in order of size):
Ceramic Black Cat and Pearlized Pastel Blue Basket Made In Occupied Japan (2" high)
Adorable Miniature Pottery Cat Handmade in Finland (2-1/2" high) (If you happen to have any ideas on the maker of this little guy, I'd love to hear from you and get this mystery solved!)
Papier Mache Cat Box Made In India (4-3/4" high)
Norcross Halloween Decoration - Black Cat with Honeycomb Tissue Pumpkin (5" high)
Pink Jeweled Thames Cat (5-3/8" high) (The mouth on this cute girl inspires a subtitle of "Caught in the act!" Isn't it funny how they can so quickly take on that look of innocence!)
Cat with Green Eyes Cast Iron Figural Dish (made in Taiwan Republic of China) (6" long)
Holt Howard (?) Made in Japan Bobble Head Cat Planter (6" long, 5-1/2" high) (This smart little guy is marked with only a Japan label, but has many of the characteristics I associate with Holt Howard cats.)

Maybe one day I'll find the energy to temporarily relocate and photograph the other cats that are on the walls or in areas of poor lighting. Hmmm... And then again, maybe I won't; you might decide I really AM a crazy cat lady!
