3 cool cats retro seventies siamese cats copy 2This tall super hip cat wasn’t lonely for long. I picked him up in the country. At  the Gresford Billy Cart Derby as a matter of fact. Quite racey indeed.

This single cool cat’s already moved on. And not in search of his other half.
Looks good on the shelf or at dinner.
