    I haven't been posting much lately because it has been seriously dry at the weeks on end of hit ones all over town and 40 stops and nothing...

    Well that ended today! I recognized the Holt Howard cat immediately but couldn't figure out what it was for. Wall hanging? Then why the hole for the mouth. Quick internet search revealed that this pretty kitty is a string and scissor holder!

    I guess we don't use string like we used to...

    Dr Fluffy, this is for you if you'd like to add it to your kitty collection.
