Homemade sock cats, each with its own personality. Left - made of a dark brown ribbed sock. Measures 15" long from tip of ears to end of tail. Has a small mend on the front and several tiny holes. He looks like he was on the losing end of a fight as his tail is seriously mangled. Middle- the runt of the litter Measures 6" long and 2 3/4" at widest. The only one I've seen with buttons down the front - or are they meant to be nipples? Right - unusual to find one made of a white sock . 5" tall and 3 1/2" at widest. Pinched nose and sad blue eyes make for a serious looking kitty.
