Hola Rigel, !tengo much excitado! Aqui es el gata, la regalo mi papa dimelo despuess el viaja al Oaxaca, Mexico en Noviembre! Te gusta? Piensa que es muy bonita?

Hi Rigel, I am very excited! Here is the kitty, the gift my Dad gave me for Christmas after he traveled to Oaxaca, Mexico. Do you like it? Do you think it's pretty?


It is hand carved and hand painted everyone, such detail, and so delicate if you can get a feel for it. Her paws are tiny black & white polka dots. And the tail is removable (haven't a clue why). Dad really knows his daughter! I promised Rigel I would post up a photo.

It is SOOOOOOOOOO pretty. How big is it- it looks small and cute, is it?
What a fab gift.

The photo doesn't do it proper justice, and a flash made the paint colors bounce off with the light. It's about 6" long from tail to paws and 3.75" high. I don't know what type of wood it is, Rigel would know. It's from south-central Mexico, way way down there. I was so touched - complete surprise from my Dad. I want to order an entire litter, you know?

How very lovely! No wonder you want the whole litter -- I would, too. What a special gift.

Lol, rapunzel.

Colorful kitty, sasha! The tail is removable so you can have a manx or not a manx--depending on your mood.

What a lovely little delicate gift from your Father, E! It's so tiny and intricately designed! It must be all the more special to you because your Father brought it back just for you all the way from Mexico!
