Black Tuxedo Kittenloaf (Sitting Cat) #003

Every house needs a little high society and this handsome fella is dressed to the nines and ready to class up the joint, no matter what surface he clings to!

Whether holding court on the kitchen fridge or looking down from a cabinet at the office this little magnet will remind you that no matter how bad a day you’re having, that there are more important things in life.

Like petting dapper cats.

…Or possibly feeding dapper cats.

…And definitely playing with the feather toy because phooey on decorum, that thing must DIE!

…Anywho. This striking black and white tomcat with tuxedo markings was painted in acrylics and sealed with a glossy finish. He’s water resistant (as most cats are) but is not waterproof.

The original cat (aka kittenloaf) was sculpted by me and then used to create a silicone mold. I then cast him using a Plaster of Paris and wood glue mixture, with additional layers of wood glue used to help harden the plaster before painting.

Still, this guy is Art and not Toy, so it will still be heading for the morgue if he hits the floor. Unlike its smaller magnet cousins, this cat has too much mass to bounce gracefully, but due to the simplicity if the design it might survive if it hits carpet.

This little cat is roughly 3.25 by 2 inches (see photo) with a 0.7 inch Neodymium magnet to give him solid holding power and is ready to bring a little feline charm to your kitchen or office!

Medium: Liquitex Gesso, Apple Barrel Acrylics 50523 Kelly Green, 20503 White, and 20504 Black), and Craftsmart (Coral).
