If condition is everything this cat is not for you. If you pick up strays on the street and save baby birds you might like the antique wool cat with button eyes and more mends than lives. He is made with the hard early black wool that probably was for a man's suit. He has velvet repair around the base of his tail, holes, darns on his body as well as patches and could use a few more. He is clean and doesn't smell and he is early, 1870's and I think he is all hand sewn. He is 7" tall and is 6 1/2" long not counting his tail. The way he sits he looks like he is putting on the brakes and says, oh no I am not going there!
