Sally's cat appears briefly in several scenes in NBC. Seems to be a free-spirited alley cat, with big gold eyes.

My partner in a recent stuffie swap liked cats and NBC. Guess who came to play. My cat was kind enough to pose for me for the initial sketch.

I did end up making the body and head separately as the first head was too small. They are joined at the neck with a concealing festive copper bow. The fabric was a piece of black suede cloth and was moderately difficult to work with, I had to pay close attention to the nap of the fabric. The eyes are reverse applique. She was fun and though she turned out about an inch taller (minus the ears) than I had planned for, she promised to crouch down to only 5 inches (a requirement for the swap) whenever anyone looked at her.

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

 Turned out great and I think working so small would be hard. Your little kitty is beautiful too!

I forgot Sally even HAD a cat--and I've seen that movie several times.  Love the yellow eyes and the sharply bent tail.  The suede material gives a nice faux fur look to the animal as well.  Your real kitty is a cutie too!
