Catty has left us and dd is heartbroken. I've found letters under her pillow begging catty to come home and saying that she is dds best friend sad

Does anyone have a Flying Tiger grey cat plush from about 4 years ago with a white tummy that they don't want anymore? Or know where I can find one? The ones in Tiger now aren't the same.

Tried eBay?

Nobbynobbsknob Mon 19-Oct-20 15:01:41

Thanks for replying. Yes I've tried ebay. There are similar ones there - harrods does something similar that her dad got her as a replacement but it's it's not the same.
This is our total last ditch attempt.
Never thought I'd be so upset over a stuffed toy!

This looks very similar?

Nobbynobbsknob Mon 19-Oct-20 15:06:03

Thanks sighing. Sadly catty is too lazy to sit up like that.
It was just a cheap toy her sister got from Flying Tiger for her birthday. Not even good quality (don't get me wrong I'm a Tiger addict).
I've not found anything the same from anywhere else.
I really appreciate you looking though

Oh no 😢

Where/how was Catty lost?

I'm sorry we don't have a Catty or you'd be welcome to it.

Nobbynobbsknob Mon 19-Oct-20 15:16:16

Catty was lost because mum is an idiot and allowed her out of the house.

So far we've tried every shop we went to, the cafe, the bus depot, train company, local swimming pool and the supermarket (it was a busy day!)
Tried ebay, old toy websites you name it.

It was a couple of months ago now and I thought she'd moved on and was over it but found a new letter saying how much she misses her.
Mumsnet is the last throw of the dice

Aurora is far too interested in life to be like catty.
You know the phrase 'dragged backwards through a hedge'? That was catty even before several years of loving

Did it come in a bag?

Nobbynobbsknob Mon 19-Oct-20 15:37:26

Yes! A blue bag.
They did them again about a year ago but the toys were slightly different.

Is that picture recent?

It's online from google images but that narrows it down.

Have you tried contacting the company, if you google - flying tiger contact us you can email in uk or Copenhagen, I used to work there and I do think they will try and help, they have a Facebook page too which might be worth a try
Best of luck 🤞

Long shot - but maybe someone can make one? Carey has been to the health spa or something so looks a bit different?

Nobbynobbsknob Mon 19-Oct-20 20:34:16

derek thank you for that idea. I'll give them a go. It sounds silly but I didn't want to bother them over something like this during lockdown as I figured they would have enough to worry about.

Friday that's a cute idea. If I find anymore letters I may end up doing that!

Can you post a picture of something similar? Difficult to see how big Catty is from those pictures.

Is it something like this?

Impatientwino Mon 19-Oct-20 20:45:44

Trying to look for something that doesn't look like it stands up!

Nobbynobbsknob Thu 22-Oct-20 17:19:35

So this is what catty looks like but in grey.
derek thank you for your suggestion. I contacted flying tiger and they weren't able to help but it was worth a go.

Oh that is a shame they weren’t able to help, I remember this little cat from my time there. I do hope she turns up, I remember the sadness of a lost toy from when my daughter was little. Fingers crossed catty turns up/or her twin makes an appearance 😊 best of luck

Hi... don’t know if you managed to find Catty... but is this him?

Whattheladybirdsaidnext Sun 01-Nov-20 19:14:22

(I’m assuming they propped him up for the photo so he doesn’t look as... flattened!)

Tigger83 Sun 01-Nov-20 19:30:57

Ohh keeping fingers crossed

KilljoysDutch Sun 01-Nov-20 19:47:50

@Nobbynobbsknobnobbys just to make sure you see this
