Sorry for posting the original shot which takes up much byte-size !
I am using iPad now, and I didn't have the folder with reduced images in it yet.

Inn Bok,

You're right, the cat looks over the others! I do like the loud eyes, as I think they animate the bottle.  Incidentally, this bottle along with one my grandfather had made, what we in the Midwest call "petoskey stone" (fossilized coral) were the first two bottles my mother ever gave me back in 1998.  She loved cats...

Regarding the bottle you posted, I actually think it looks more like the one George posted recently for Friday Fun bottle, yes?
I'm still on the fence about the one I posted, something about the way it feels versus the way it looks still has me uncertain.
