These are two homemade cat toys from the turn of the century. On the left is a sock cat with an embroidered face and a wonderful three dimensional tongue. It measures 9 1/2" tall from the base to the tip of the ears. New England origin. On the left is a cat that may have been meant as a squeak toy. One can feel a metal ring inside it. It may have been inserted to give it structure or it may have given off a noise. This poor critter is missing one of its appliqued eyes. It measures 11" tall to the tip of the ears. Pennsylvania origin.
