Vist to the vets with cat & cat jewellery

We have always had animals. At the moment we have 2 cats and a dog. Not to mention the pond full of assorted fish.
On Monday night, we noticed that one of the cats was having difficulty eating. So yesterday off to the vets we went and as thought, the rest of her teeth need removing, all but a couple at the back and the 4 front ones.
She is the only one of all our cats that has had this trouble and I believe its because she was a bit too young to be taken from her mother.

Cats have been the subject of ornaments and jewellery since ancient times. The Egyptians adored and worshiped them. Though they do try your patience, when they bring a live mouse in and promptly loose it under the settee!

Here are a few vintage brooches on our website - just for fun

 Egyptian looking black love cats - pre owned brooch

This is a vintage souvenir brooch from the 1960s/1970s. Glitter metallic under a layer of clear enamel on a brass/gold coloured setting. Made in all shapes, colours and sizes, and are easy to collect.

The Jonette Jewelry company made many cat brooches. This one has a articulated tail and moves. many made in a pewter metal and in all shapes and sizes.Again another type of cat brooches (signed JJ) that are fun and easy to collect.
A modern second hand cat brooch.

One that I do not have photographed that are similar to JJ is the company Mali - they have made many chunky cat brooches in the cartoon style.

Will have to take more recent photographs of our cats to show - but off to the vets soon with a sulking cat because I won't let her go out!!
