This a real survivor cat. At first I thought she might be a Steiff cat but with replaced ears that doesn't make it very easy to know. I think she is probably homemade because she is all hand sewn. She has glass eyes and sturdy little legs that still allow her to stand on all fours all by herself. She is mohair but is missing about 50% of it. Luckily the fabric she was made with is the same color as the mohair. She is straw stuffed and has a few holes but nothing is leaking out. She clean and has no odors and comes from a smoke free house. She is 9 1/2" long and stands 6 1/2" tall. Around her neck she has an early bell on a string. It might be original two her and was saved by some kind soul and put back on her. She is a really nice late 19th C. toy cat.
