Item Description

The antique taxidermy domestic kitten or house cat (Felis catus), with green eyes and a somewhat surprised expression, wearing a leather collar and a chestnut coat, wonderfully poised in a freestanding and relaxed couchant position, the whole surviving from the second quarter of the twentieth century, preserved as a cherished companion.

The specimen is presented in slightly tired order but overall, still very attractive as a whole; there is some losses to the ear tips and claws which you so often find to older mounts. She has been sprayed with taxidermy protector.

The cat is a domestic species of small carnivorous mammal. It is the only domesticated species in the family Felidae and is often referred to as the domestic cat to distinguish it from the wild members of the family. Felis catus as a species has arisen through wildcats living closely with humans. The first evidence of human stores of grain come from Israel about 10,000 years ago. With the storage of grain, came the increase in the population of mice. This in turn is thought to have attracted the wild cats into the human settlements.

We call her Maude. We will miss Maude.
