I felt bad repainting it, as I know how rare these figurines are - but it was in bad shape.
Before you start thinking "he's a bit dark isn't he?" I based the colours on this image below:

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.
The following photos are of Tiger in her ecstasy, she loves the sun.
This one (above) is my favourite
