Jim Shore cat figurines

Updated on November 8, 2012

Jim Shore Cat Heartwood Creek figurine collectibles

This is Elijah, the Jim Shore Heartwood Creek cat figurine who patiently sits beneath our flat-screen TV for a couple of years now. It is this whimsical, fat cat that inspired me to create a lens about these delightful handcrafted and handpainted Jim Shore cats, each one with its own unique purr-sonality. There is wit and humor imbued into each figurine that will elicit smiles and warm the heart. Jim Shore cats are here to stay, Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter. They make purr-fect companions and have no maintenance. You would want to collect them all.

Patience, curiosity, and luck

These are known to be cat virtues

      I love Jim Shore cats. I really like how you laid out this lens. Looks great. Wish I knew how to do it. Maybe one day when I become a giant squid I will learn all the Squidoo secrets.
