Once somebody offered me a ceramic cat for my birthday, that's at least 30 years ago. Ever since everybody offers me cats for birthdays, Christmas, wedding anniversaries, visits or other occasions, with the result that meanwhile I have a cat collection of about 450 cats in all sizes, shapes and materials. I don't complain !

Here is the upper and lower part of a vitrine standing in then entrance

and a few cats picked out of my collection.

All those cats are wonderfully cute but I would complain. Who dusts them?!

I have been away for a long time because I have been so busy. I would peek in from time to time and see the cats, but not take time to comment.

Nice tree pics. What's the name of the first one? It looks really unusual to me!

Each cat certainly has its own personality, doesn't it? Great pictures!

My daughter was collecting cats for awhile. We were just coming across interesting ones everywhere. Looks like you've got some really nice and unusual ones.

Great collection!

Wow! What a huge collection! I just love some of the individual cats and groupings of cat figures you did in the later photos, especially the set of three, the fireplace cats and the blue Egyptian-looking one. Wonderful!
