H. Frederick. So named because I once saw a picture of Frederick the Great and this cat looks just like him. It's plain to see the bowl is empty. Isn't anyone going to feed me, the King? Retail: Upwards of $185.00. Our price: $165.90.

I. Lana Thai, Queen of Siam(ese). Her delicate blond beauty and grace are a sight to behold. She is a beautiful example of the breed and, as you can see, she is quite shy. The sculptor of this box captured the play of muscles in the cat's neck and back perfectly. Holding this box in hand you can feel the shape of the body and, as you move the box, see the light and shadows where the cat's muscles are delineated. A wonderful piece. A mouse for the clasp and inside another. Our price: $193.90.

J. The Odd Couple!
They spend all of their time together. He's the neighborhood "Toff" patrolling the back alleys and side yards and she follows along behind him flirting with everyone she meets. Toff and Tweetie, great favorites of mine. Retail: Upwards of $255.00. Our price: $216.90.

K.
Annabelle Lee. This very young Siamese is just as feminine as can be.  She has ensconced herself on a pink velvet cushion and that's where she spends much of her time.  She is wearing a pink satin bow around her neck, a real one, and inside the box is a ball of yarn, painted. She plays with that yarn by the hour.  Isn't she the cutest little thing!  Don't you just love kittens?  Retail: About $175.00.  Our price: $157.90.

L. Foggy. "Fog steals in on the feet of a cat." An appropriate quotation for this soft grey kitty who is the color of fog. The sculpting of this particular box is extremely well done. It is a version of an older box, from perhaps 20-25 years ago. When I compared them, this one was much improved, better articulated and much more detailed. The coloring of this particular box is very subtle and lovely. Inside, a mouse! Retail: Upwards of $173.00. Our price: $147.90. NOTE: This box is a bit larger than the average box. More like boxes from 25 years ago, in size..

M. The Portrait of Miss Lissie Box. Many years ago we had a cat, Miss Lissie, who looked just like this cat. She was silvery with the bluest eyes. She's long gone but when I saw this piece I thought surely there would be others who had silvery longhaired beauties who might like to remember them with this box. Inside a ball of yarn and knitting needles. Lissie preferred balls of twine to yarn but I guess that's to each his own. The clasp is unimportant to the box. Our price: $157.90. Return Engagement.

N. Amber and Onyx. Since Amber had her last litter she's been treated like the queen she is. Here on a gorgeous silk pillow with tassels--they knew she would need something to play with and tassels are great for shredding! Onyx is still very young and just starting to do jobs like shredding so he stays close to Mama while she does this so he can learn. It takes a bit of experience to get the shredding just right. You wouldn't want him to be less than perfect at this very important task, would you? Inside a spool of thread. Did somebody mention this cushion can be repaired? Describing the box is really not necessary. It speaks for itself and says, "Meow". The clasp is their ball. Our price: $187.90.
