The Cats of Hilltop Road

So this is my first cat (first cause I took this picture first) I think it came from the Dollar store but might have been in a box lot from and auction - She keeps my paperclips for me.

Next we have the little cats - some are marked, some are Royal Doulton, Some are occupied Japan and some are strays who found their way here. Actually many many of them got here with help from my husband - who one day at an auction outbid me to get ALL of them. There's still a plastic shopping back full of the tiniest ones who didn't fit on this shelf. I have to find them a smaller shelf.

This guy guards my office, from the inside out. He hangs over the office door and will not let intruders leave! He's carved from wood and painted and not signed. Came from an auction so I don't know who did him.

Well, now I know who's been nibbling on the Peace Lillies! The Big Cat here, came from Indonesia. ,ade from some really light wood and painted (and her wood split...) and she guarded our antique shop from shoplifters for 2 years. She's quite the fashion plate she is. And under her is a vintage Hubley cast iron doorstop cat. She's heavy!

Green metal cat - not signed - about 12 inches high.
This one sits on the bookcases and watched the live cats' antics.

Well that's all for today - more cats tomorrow
