Cats and bird are usually depicted in cartoons and other media as mortal enemies, and often this is indeed the case. However, in at least one instance, a bird decided it would help feed a hungry kitten, and it led to a friendship that would last a lifetime.

  • Characteristics: This set includes two accurate, hand-painted figures of a gray tabby cat and a raven, allowing you to recreate this unlikely animal friendship.
  • Size and Color: This set of hand-painted Best in Show and Wings of the World Bird figures contains two animal toys:

    Our tabby figure features gray fur above and white below, with black stripes, yellow-green eyes and pink on its nose and inner ears. It measures 2 inches long and 2 ½ inches high, or about the same size as a mini cupcake.

    The raven is 2 inches high and 3 inches long, about the size of a deck of cards, and is black with a brown base.

    Note: Figures are NOT to scale. Please refer to images for relative size.

History:

In 1999, a couple in Massachusetts noticed a kitten in their yard. They were concerned about its well-being until they noticed a crow was feeding it...it was feeding it what a crow would eat - worms and bugs - but still, better than nothing! 

The couple eventually took the cat indoors and named it Cassie, and they called the crow Moses. In the morning, Moses would appear at their door, looking for his friend Cassie. Then they would go outside and play together until it was time for Cassie to come back inside.

Corvids, like crows and ravens, are some of the most intelligent birds alive and have shown to be able to use tools, remember specific individuals and communicate complex ideas amongst themselves. Still, it's unknown why a crow decided to "adopt" a kitten, in this particular instance.
