Collecting Cats and Dogs

Cat Lady Rose Gates wears many hats. Not only is she a founding member of Angelcat Haven Feline Rescue and a Petfinder phototographer, she also writes the "Kitty Corner" column in the Pet Day section of the Sun Chronicle Newspaper in Massachusetts. I was thrilled to be mentioned in this week's column about collecting cats! You can read the article here: Cat Items Purr-fect Gifts for Collectors

Speaking of collecting cats (and canines too!) here are a few of the offerings direct from my storage shed that are for sale this week as I continue in my quest to thin down my own collection:

These cool cats are from the 1960s and are up for auction on Ebay! But you'd better act fast-- the auction ends tonight, Friday March 9th. Click here for more information and to place a bid: Teak Cat Bookends


This happy duo are off to find mischief, no doubt. The auction for this vintage pottery planter ends tomorrow, Saturday March 10, at around 6 p.m. Pacific Time. Click here for more info: Running Dogs


Bonzo the Dog was a fictional cartoon character first created in 1911 by George Studdy, and he became wildly popular. His likeness adorned all manner of things, including household goods like these salt and pepper shakers. These are currently for sale in my Curio Cabinet Shop on Etsy for $12.

Do you collect the collectible kind of cats or canines? We'd love to see photos of your collection! Here are some of the figurines I've collected over the years, and below is but a small sampling of Cat Lady Rose's collection of sparkly and fun vintage cat brooches! Show us photos of your own collection of vintage cats, dogs, or other animal collectibles on my Facebook page and with your permission, I'd love to feature them in future blog posts. (you must be a "liker" of my FB page before you will be able to post pictures there...)

Happy Collecting!
