Thanks Adrian for your insights!

Their Ma Shaoxian has yellow eyes like yours whereas the other two don't, or not noticeably. The earlier, possibly Ma Shaoxuan, is different from the other 2 and yours in that the foremost leg on the top cat is painted straighter and doesn't have folds in the flesh.

Perhaps we ought to post them all and play "spot the difference"  Smiley

And very detailed observation!! Its always the best way to learn by putting the bottles together and compare with them side by side.
