Our cat is an orange tabby named Rosie. Orange cats that are female come from two orange parents and, statistically, they are half as common as male orange cats. We’ve had one other orange female tabby, too, and have a soft spot for them. Tilly was quite ferocious and was named after Attila the Hun! I suppose I could easily become a crazy cat lady, given half a chance.
I like dogs, too, and always enjoy a good animal story or art which depicts them. Today, I chuckled when I came across this photo of a cat lounging next to a sculpture of cats. I thought it was so funny…. It turns out the bronze sculpture depicts the Singapura cat, which is evidently the smallest breed in the Guinness Book of World Records and one of the rarest cats in the world, according to Singapore Infopedia. The cat is also called Kucinta (Kuchinta) and is the unofficial mascot of the tourism board in Singapore. Also known as Singapore River cats, 15 public art sculptures of the cats were to have been placed along the river. These three bronze pieces remain. In 1988, the American Cat Fanciers Association gave the feline pedigree status.
If it wasn’t for our penchant for rescue cats, we might consider one of these critters. Singapura cats are beautiful, as can be seen in the video below. Huge eyes, they look almost like Boynton kitties. They seem to be a very interesting breed, too.
