I felt bad repainting it, as I know how rare these figurines are - but it was in bad shape.

Tiger, is my cat - she's ten in 6 days time, which is my birthday as well.  She's a house cat and rarely goes outside.  Her mother was a feral cat, who was just a kitten when we moved here and gradually became tame.  In her lifetime she had four litters, the first one Tiger was in.

This one (above) is my favourite
