Paws For Thought

For cat lovers everywhere, this is a piece you must add to your collection! Peter takes up the story:
Here my cat has forgotten how many of his nine lives he has used up. I say nine, but in Germany, Italy, Greece and Brazil seven lives are the norm whilst Turkish and Arabic cats only get six!
Whilst carving this piece I enjoyed discovering yet more new cat-related facts so carved into the piece are a few of them. Kaltenstoet is a cat festival in Ypres, Belgium, where cats were once thrown from the belfry. Luckily only toy cats suffer the same fate these days.
Maneki-Neko (Beckoning Cat) is the name of the lucky charm cat, based on a Calico Japanese Bobtail, with the raised paw which graces many Chinese restaurants in the UK.
‘The Cat’s 9 Lives Song’ is something you must look up on YouTube. It will make you smile!
