I am not talking about the mass produced plastic cr*p that you are often given by well meaning friends or family, I am talking about REAL gifts that have been thought about and sourced carefully.
Being a converted cat lover, I am always on the look out for quirky "cat gifts" for those friends and family who find themselves smitten by our felines
I have discovered a really great potter here in Johannesburg whose cats are not only quirky, but handmade and unique.
Whether you need a birthday present or you want something individual for a special event, CarolynF will be able to make you a cat that will not only suit the occasion, but will certainly become a collectors item in years to come.
For some years now she has been doing one-off handmade plates and other useful items but it was when she recently turned her hand to cats that her true talent came to the fore.
Using a variety of different colours and styles she seems to infuse her creations with the love she has for her own cats...although she does not use them as models for her items, merely using their characteristics as inspiration for her products.
Cat lovers will immediately be able to identify with the expressions on these faces
