Believe it or not, but during the years I collected over 300 cats, from wood to ceramic, from very small to very tall.
I don't even remember how it happens. I think because everybody knew I liked cats, they started to offer me everything with a cat. Letterheads, calenders, agendas, keyrings, plates, mugs, napkinholders, and even a toilet paper holder !

Salt and Pepper
Then for birthday, motherday, weddingday, christmas, I was offered a cat. My son said, that at least in this, I was an easy mother because he only had to offer me a cat to make me happy. And this lasts until today, I am still happy to being offered a cat.

and also Lisa...
The wooden cats, I have got mostly from my son the egyptian once too. He always offered me beautifull and very big cats. Unfortunately now he thinks I should change and be happy with other thinks. So he started to give me other presents. Beautifull, but would have been more nice with a small little cat.

The flower pot I did myself too
Pebbles I transform into cats
Display cabinet, cats from all countries around the world
So by the time I had to buy a display cabinet and the house is full of cats.
My husband is also a cat fan, he also loves my collection and each time he finds a special cat which are not in the collection he buys it, adding to the seller with a shy look "It's for my wife's collection" I am a good excuse.
