Sleepy Black Cat (small)
Love this


Sleeping cat. A very dark brown (almost black) cat. This cat would love to snooze on the corner of you desk or shelf, he has a peaceful and calming presence.

This sleeping cat has been gently stroked into shape from a hollow ball of clay. Ideal for cat lovers. Each cat in my shop is handmade, so each one is unique. This cat is very peaceful, and curled tightly with his head on his tail. He is small enough to fit in the palm of your hand.

Suitable for indoor or outdoor use - he is happy to snooze on your bookshelf, mantelpiece or the corner of your desk, but equally happy to find a sunny spot in your garden.
This cat would make a lovely housewarming gift.

o Made from stoneware ceramic. Kiln fired.
o Colour: very rich dark brown, almost black, with matt black eyes and heart shaped nose.
o Size: 7.5cm in diameter (9cm to ear tips!)
o Weight 192g
o The underside is unglazed, and has been stamped with ThePotteryCat logo and the unique reference number of the piece.


This cat is made from two pinch pot that are joined together to form a hollow ball of clay. That hollow ball of clay has been gently stroked into shape, then the ears and tail.

This is the product that inspired The Pottery Cat Shop. I love making sleepy cats like this, and while I make other items for the shop, this style cat is the backbone.

Each cat is unique as each one is handmade so keep checking the shop for different ear shapes, tail lengths, face shapes, colours and textures.
