What do you think ? Got a certain something about it IMO. The whiskers are very realistic, and make it look scary as fuck unusual.

This is the description.

Long hair toitose coloured concrete Ornament Hand painted and sealed with whiskers. Collection only. Thank you.This is not living.

feel free to tempt me other garden decor before I commit. Grin

It looks like something Nadja and Lazlo from What We Do In The Shadows would have in their garden Shock

This is not living

Oh my god that is AMAZING!!!

Very unusual..i like it Smile

I'd expected a long-haired toitoise tortoise when I read the description Grin. It's glorious. I love the random placement of whiskers.

I'm pretty sure it was living at some point, it looks like it's been dug up. I wouldn't be welcome in my garden.

FlibbertyGiblets · 10/06/2019 20:51

Jeez Kurri I properly flinched at that um delightful erm ornament.


Minkies11 · 10/06/2019 20:53

s horrifying! Those smudgy green eyes would follow you around. And random eyebrow whiskers.

EllebellyBeeblebrox · 10/06/2019 20:53

Holy fuck what is that? I have what can be described (in the kindest possible way) as eclectic taste but that's fucking monstrous

EllebellyBeeblebrox · 10/06/2019 20:54

What are they charging for that abomination?

Minkies11 · 10/06/2019 20:54

So scared I can't type Grin

You might get someone well meaning, but short-sighted calling the RSPCA.....

Minkies11 · 10/06/2019 21:00

What does sealed with whiskers mean? Sealed what? Who?
Is it hollow and there's something mummified in there?

KurriKurri · 10/06/2019 21:00

Ellebelly - it is yours for a mere £15 - a bargain at hakf the price I'm sure you will agree.

It is listed under the heading
Concrete ornament, IT'S NOT REAL OR LIVING

Obviously the owner has been plagued by people thinking this is a real cat (or toitose or whatever it is), and is obsessed that folk will think they are getting a pet. If that were a real cat, it would surely be dead - it has no lower face, and whiskers coming out of the top of its head and nostrils Confused

£15? Take my money now! It could come in handy to scare other people's cats out of my garden, the fact that it will probably also scare the postie and any neighbouring children away is a risk I'll have to take

userxx · 10/06/2019 21:06

The more I look at it the more hideous it becomes. For £15 quid I'm tempted to buy just to see the horrified look on the dogs face 🤣

UtterlyUnimaginativeUsername · 10/06/2019 21:08

AAARGH I can't see the photo!

KurriKurri · 10/06/2019 21:09

My dog would not go out into the garden if that was there, he'd take one look and faint in terror. (he's a poodle obviously)

I'll see if i can repost it.

Margotshypotheticaldog · 10/06/2019 21:12

Just post the link, I'm going to buy it sight unseen. I must have this.... Whatever it is!! 😂 😂

Margotshypotheticaldog · 10/06/2019 21:12

Holy fuck! My eyes My eyes!!!!

EllebellyBeeblebrox · 10/06/2019 21:13
