The cat collector or Kat-a-log part 3

Hi hi!

We hope that you had a great weekend. For us, it was one of the most busiest weekends we had so far this year. Mal was editing photos while Rita was out and about taking adventage of the Heritage Weekend (please keep your eyes open as she is going to write a detailed report very shortly) and Olympia was working hard to bring you the latest edition of the Kat-a-log. Forces combined and the brilliant pictures have been designed, taken and edited.

The collection is growing rapidly with kittens being added almost every month. This entry is presenting the newest addition that joined the big feline family in recent days. Are you ready to meet them?

Kat-a-log Feline no.10
The two side of a cat:
The Front View and The Back View.
Country of origin: Loudres, France
The cat hanging on the washing line is actually a mat, not a figurine. It was a present for our mom from Violet, one of Mal’s neighbours, bought during the religious trip to Loudres. Violet found it in a Saint Francis of Assis Pet Store that collects money for animal shelters by selling original gifts.  If you didn’t know, The World Animal Day is celebrated on the 4th of October, the feast day of Saint Francis, who is the patron of animals, ecology and the environment:)
Anyway, we love the mat to bits, and it will come really handy as Olympia is a proud owner of several tea mugs that feature cats! July 2012.

Kat-a-log Feline no.11
The two side of a cat:
Portrait with a bird and White heart, grey fur.
Country of origin: manufactured in China, bought on Malta
This little figurine has been found on Malta by Olympia and rescued from a store in Birkirkara that was being closed down. Nobody wanted it and its fate was looking grim. Luckily, it found a good home in Poland and he’s been happy there even since! He is Rita’s favourite’s among all cats presented in this issue of Kat-a-log!

Kat-a-log Feline no.12
The two side of a cat:
Light the way and Inside the red heart
Country of origin: manufactured in China, bought on Malta
This lovely ginger feline was also rescued by Olympia from a store in liquidation in Birkirkara, Malta. We must say, he looks extraordinary sweet on pictures! October, 2010

If you still haven’t had enough of them, here’s an additional picture that Malicia had taken of both cats posing together. We called it “All together now”! You can see the difference in size between the kittens.

All together now

Kat-a-log Feline no.13
The three sides of a cat:
On the mantlepiece, White marble and The Royal Emblem
Country of origin: The Netherlands, bought in September 2012
It’s not a simple wooden sculpture but a 5 piece puzzle toy! It has been sculpted by artist Gabriel Peiffer in the Netherlands and travelled all the way  to Hereford as a part of the h.ART World of Artists market exhibition.
You can visit Gabriel Peiffer’s website here

On the mantlepiece
White Marble

All three pictures have been taken during the Heritage Weekend in the Hereford City Hall, the headquarters of the Herefordshire City Council. We wouln’t have the opportunity to take the last one, if it wasn’t for the kindness of the Mayor of Hereford himself, Councillor Denis Brian Wilcox JP. Mr Wilcox noticed Rita taking the pictures for the Kat-a-log and found the idea behind the project a truly fascinating one! He invited us to his Parlour and allowed to photograph our cat on the official Herefordshire emblem! We also learnt that only Hereford and The City of London are allowed to have three lions as their emplem! Isn’t it cool? Here you have  4 lions and one wooden cat!

The royal emblem

All right, another issue of Kat-a-log is completed!
Rita is preparing a big report from the Heritage Days, so be sure to check out our next blog!
