Okay, it's supposed to be Momma cat and her new kitten. It's probably rabbit fur, but sure seems like cat fur. Would fool at a glance. Pink plastic nose (would be nice painted with red nail polish) has been stuck on. These two animals were never cats. It's a fur sculpture. Which should be a crime.

But, ah ... where is the rest of the kitten???

So I've always thought of them as "conjoined" in a sideshow "gaff" way, but this thing was made for some idiot in an airport, to buy for his neice on the way to see her for her birthday. Okay, where is the rest of the kitten then? What, they got lazy, or were "cutting" corners? Jeeze ...

For me, this was just way TOO creepy. If my daughter or son had seen it they would have gotten it for me for a joke for Christmas. They know me. Ha! I beat 'um to it at the infamous old Sausalito Flea Market. But really, this is in dreadfully bad taste ... so really, I'm just going to shout it out:

"Good god, what were 'they' thinking?"

I'm sorry if you "don't get" my sarcasm and think this is the cutest thing since your newborn baby, I can sell it to you, but I can't help you. I'm kidding. No, I'm not. Yes, I am. I kid.

I've always thought it was hideous. Which is, of course, why I collected it.

The bottom is furry leather too. Like a "belly" or something icky you probably shouldn't be petting, I don't know. It's stuffed with lumpy stuff, so when you "pet" the Mom cat, she has tumors. Quite a lot of rather large tumors actually. There isn't a place on her body where one can't find something akin to: "Tumors On Parade." I think the person who made the model for the skin was drinking too much coffee that day and just gave up and forgot to saw the lumps off. Or, perhaps the original cat had a lot of tumors, and our "artist" was a "realist." Ha! Oh, please forgive me.

This has been in my Museum(s,) moving on for decades. I did vacuum the dust off it and the basket. I like dust on objects so they are even creepier but this one needed it bad, and the hair stayed on so that was good. A hairless lumpy cat would be too much.
