Spooky Norman is very friendly, if fiendishly spooky, one of a kind artist cat in hand-dyed silk, viscose and faux fur by Barbara Ann Bears
Spooky Norman stands 12.5 inches( 31 cm) tall and is 11 inches (27 cm) sitting, his curly tail would be about 13 inches (33 cm) long if it could be straightened out, but it's always going to be a curly tail, it was cut and sewn that way.
Spooky Norman is a rather sweet if rather unconventional cat, he loves Halloween but he says that a cat is for all year round and not just for Halloween, he's happy to curl up with you all year long. He has a little mouse (a cat toy mouse) called Russell, which he is very fond of, he would never harm it as it's his best friend.
Spooky Norman is made from several different pieces of fabric, he's mostly made from a very dense, soft and fluffy black faux fur which glistens in the light like a real cat, well like our old cat Felix's fur used to. The top of his face and his tummy are made from a fairly long and soft Japanese silk that Barbara has hand dyed in orange and pink. Spooky Norman's tail, inner ears and footpads are made from a printed velvet which has an abstract pattern in black against a background of orange, gold, turquoise, purple and green. The sides of his snout are a very long and wispy black mohair and crowning it all he has a fairly short peach faux fur with sprouts of much longer red and blue faux fur, they look a bit like fireworks.
Spooky Lucas has large, beautiful, glass cats' eyes (with oval pupils) with hand coloured eyelids, an impressive nose embroidered from individual threads to match his colouring and a beaming smile, he is stuffed with plastic pellets and polyester stuffing to make him a little heavier and more cuddly. His tail has a bendy tubular 'thing' inside it which means that you can change its shape a little. His little mouse (Russell) is a cat toy bought from a shop, it is made from yellow cotton with white spots, red pink ears and black whiskers.
Spooky Norman is a wild and wonderful arty cat with a very sweet and mischievous personality. He loves to have fun as well as loving to sit beside someone while they read a spooky book or watch a ghost story on TV, only occasionally trying to frighten the bejeebus out of you.
