Thank you lovelies! <3

 kCherry, I'm still trying determine the prices, but ballpark figure £200 for an unclothed cat and £250 for a costumed cat. Each one takes 10 days to make on average (10 hour working day) and there are material costs to take into account also. But this is my prediction for how much I'll be charging. I hope that helps! :)

Lemonice they're cast in a soft foam and covered in a thin nylon material (like stockinette fabric) :)

They are amazing!!! I love the siamese one (since i have a siamese cat of my own), they are really well executed! The dolls look like something you want to hug and not like a scary human cat hybrid with gnarled fur  XD
Anyways great job! Can't wait to see more!

:inlove:  :whoa:  Is it ok if I just squeeeee now?  :P Crazy cat lady here is making grabby hands!! :dribble:  :lovey:  :dribble: 
TBH I'm not usually a fan of animal/human hybrid /anthro  type dolls, but these are just way too cute!! not creepy at all they are absolutely adorable and look really well made. Love them!! :lovey:  :kitty:   :lovey:
 I have  Cinnamon- not so orange as ginger -  twin sister kitties ( one with spots, one with swirls  on their coats) who I've had since they were tiny kittens - they  are my babies... I'd really love a couple of these based on them. I am however a bit broke right now (understatement!!) , but I'm keeping you in mind for in the  future :heart:

Super cute! They give me 'The Cat Returns' vibes and I'm loving it. Have you ever thought about making Catrine or that new anthro-cat from the pony movie coming out this year?

Thank you Ringlets! :) That's so lovely of you to say <3 I know what you mean - anthropomorphic animals can sometimes look quite creepy or very unnatural. These dolls were actually very much inspired by my love of old toys from my childhood like MLP. I sculpted them with a roundness and the material they're covered in has a similar fuzzy look to flocking. I have had pet cats all my love and adore them, so the idea from these came from my love of cats, making things and my nostalgia for 80s and 90s toys.

Your cats sound absolutely lovely. I plan to be making these for as long as I can/am aiming towards making a living as an artist, so if you're interested in the future just give me a shout :)

Olympus, I love that film and was probably subconsciously inspired by it! I love all Studio Ghibli films. I hadn't thought of making either of those characters, but they could be fun commissions!
