Height: 11”
Width: 7”

The taxidermy domestic adult house cat (Felis catus), with green eyes and white coat, wonderfully poised in a freestanding and attentive seated position, the whole surviving from the twenty first century in super overall condition, preserved by G. Tatterton Taxidermy of Yorkshire.

The specimen is presented in very good condition with the hair nice and lustrous and all claws present. The entire composition only shows wear commensurate with age.

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.

A scarce mount, ethically sourced, and a very entertaining addition to any drab interior.
