Choosing Your Cat
Granite Stone Garden Cats
The Granite Stone Garden Cats are life-size and life-like, certainly real enough to spook many of the little dogs which come with their owners to visit us. Each of the garden cats is cast solid in a mixture of resin and grey granite giving a rough stone finish , impervious to the weather, and especially suited to gardens, patios, walls. and even roofs from where they can survey ytheir domain. This is Octavia contemplating going back to sleep or perhaps murdering another mouse .Just look at those eyes-capable of anything. So different from Fred who does nothing but sleep. and eat or take the odd stroll around his domain.
Large Metallic Cats
The Large Metallic Cats, made of aluminium and resin, are mostly designed for indoors and have a smoother finish than the granitic cats although, being also impervious they too can go outside. Orlando, Sophie,Ben, Sappho and Ruby can be seen enjoying the sunshine in the garden or through the winter braving the ice and cold.
Handsize Metallic Cats
The Handsize Metallic Cats have a very smooth shiny finish and demand to be fondled and stroked. Made of a mixture of aluminium and resin they are solid and substantial and infinitely tactile. Alfie snoozes safely in your hand. They make ideal small cat presents for the kind person who is looking after your cats whilst you are enjoying the pleasures of Wensleydale. Their small size is much appreciated when space is at a premium for our customers who travel overseas by air. and the increasing number of cyclists with not much room in their saddlebags.
Moorside Ceramic Cats
Ceramic Cats are decorated with metallic oxides,such as copper and iron fired to temperatures around 1250c to produce a rich smooth glaze. Our method of working ensures that every cat is unique with no two decorations being the same. Most cats are Tabby, either grey with white markings or ginger with white markings, although we do produce cats that are black or white, black and white, and also cats that we call Tortioiseshell whilst the Americans call them Calico cats which have patches of different colours.
