Orange Longhair Cats
I seem to have a small theme of cats going on in my store recently. I found about 5 cat figurines in a cupboard in the spare bedroom/warehouse/office/storage, well whatever I can get to fit in there! But NO, I am NOT a hoarder! It is inventory! :) I don't know anything about Orange Longhair Cats. I do love cats, but I haven't had one in years. But the scavenger hunter's theme this week is "orange", so since I have this cat figurine I thought I might blog about it. Well, I had no idea the history of the longhair cat was so involved! I, myself, am not fond of cats with the mushed in faces (no offense to those that adore them, just a personal preference!) although I do think pugs and bulldogs are adorable. Oh, I'm getting off track (dog lover, can you tell?) ... anyway, it appears the domestic longhair hails from the Persian and/or Angora or actually any mixed ancestry, you can check it all out at Wikipedia. But the pictures of them on are quite awesome, except for the scary little guy with the "lion cut" near the bottom of the page on the Persian longhair page. Le Petit Marché's little orange longhair cat figurine is pretty cute, with piercing bright orange eyes. If you have a cat lover in your family, or a lover of this breed and color then this is the item for their collection. Christmas is sooner than you think, so start shopping now at Ecrater Stores Network !
