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.
