MEOW - C IS FOR CAT

Today I'm joining up with a really fun blog party....Alphabe-Thursday with
JENNY MATLOCK  so be sure to hop over there and check out the other fun posts this week. 

C IS FOR CAT

I love my cats and have had many over the years.  Friends seem to think because you love cats you love cat stuff
WELL......I do!
This is a Vintage ceramic cat....It is to hold yarn or string
 
This is made by McCoy Potteries and I love this piece


I found this sweet vintage planter in a thrift store


This cat is milk glass and was won on an ebay auction
 
It was made by the Mosser Glass company in Cambridge, Ohio


This little guy was just too cute to leave behind


Made by Lefton and I paid 55 cents for him


This is a compact made by Estee Lauder and very collectible 

 The next cats are not Vintage but part of my collection!


This is another planter and I love the creamy white and pink 


When I first spotted this cat, it was in another persons cart at Goodwill, they put it down and I swooped it up. I love the butterflies on this.  The lady who put it down asked me what it was for, I told her a pad of paper goes in  the slot and this hole is for a pen....ohhhhhhh she said.  Now she wishes she had kept it, but it's mine!


Cat mugs of course
This adorable cookie jar was a gift from a good friend

AND 
of course my favorite cat...Charlie
 
This is a picture of Charlie from the scrapbook when I brought him home in Nov of  1998


Posing! 
Thanks for looking over my vintage and new CATS!

Always,
Linda

It's hard to say which cat I like the most. But I'd say the real cat is the best. The second one is the Goodwill cat. I love how the pen is the tale too cute.

What a positively fantastic array of kitty items! I'm a huge cat lover myself (and the proud "mom" to one darling grey tabby named Stella), too, and adore finding feline themed pieces.

Wishing you a splendid Thursday & blissfully wonderful month of February!

Linda, all of your kitties are cute. I had never seen one that holds yarn, that's a switch, they are usually running with it...but my favorite is the beautiful grey and white one posing so regally!

Kitty mania, for sure, but most delightful. I'm a fanatic about strawberries and elephants. It's nice to have something special to collect but I've run out of space in my home!

Charly looks much like my sweet cat that I adored when I was a child. Thanks for sharing his photo.
All you cat inspired things are fun. The little McCoy yarn holder is my favorite.
