      What a yummy burned caramel colour orange.
      These simple shapes animals can be so evocative too.

      A very nice glass kitty! I love the deep orange color of him, he reminds me of a huge ginger cat that used to visit me when I was a kid! I think he’s curled up by the hearth on a winters evening enjoying the heat!

      "Miss Priss" should be the name !

      Thomas thank you for your great fun comment, this kitty is meowing her thanks! She looks to be a sly one :)

      Thanks Karen for your wonderful and absolutely on target observ, typical of Swedish glass that their animals are simple & spare, just enough form for you to tell its a cat. I love the burnt orange color too, it's great and rare to find that in glass animals - in your fabulous collection you have such beautiful orange glass that I love

      Thank you so much Phil for your awesome comment & seeing the contented peaceful look of this kitty, she looks quite relaxed as you can tell from her wound-around tail

      Lauren you're so right, it is a ginger cat! They are such a pretty variety of cat, and when mixed with white their coats remind me of creamsicle ice cream :) She certainly looks very tame and I can see it curled up by the fire, lovely imagery & terrific comment

      You know Alfie, I will call this kitty Miss Priss from now on! Cats are so finicky and selective, I always admire their careful "scoping out" behavior, they do look before they leap unlike some of their human friends lol. Thank you for your very nice and thoughtful comment

      Ms Doglover vintagelamp, thank you so much for enjoying my glass kitty here. I have some pups in my collection but always on the lookout for more to balance the cat-dog ratio. Our family dog was a beagle, she was a cutie with a sweet nature but had a loud baying bark, you didn't need an alarm clock :)

      Thanks Newfld :) Our family did have a cat who was named Miss Priss by Mom! She was sweet and always content.
    9. Alfie21 Alfie21, 3 months ago
      Newfld, and our Miss Priss was an orange Tabby.
    10. Newfld Newfld, 3 months ago
      Alfie thank you for your super comments & I'm so glad to bring back fond memories of your orange tabby cat Miss Priss, she sounds adorable. Our family pets will always be the most special I believe

      Thank you Searching for the kind love and support, it's so nice of you and always very much appreciated
