New Matryoshka - Orange Angel Cat

I got this little guy at the Russian booth at the Orange County Fair, which I try to visit every year. I'm sure I overpaid for him and he would have cost a measly $5 from a vendor on the streets of St. Petersburg, but how could I resist this? He's a cat (I have a beloved orange tabby/siamese mix), he's an angel, and he's using his divine powers to scatter flower petals on the world below! I'm not sure who quite came up with this admittedly nonsensical theme, but it's cute regardless!

Here is a picture of the full family:

  1. This is too cute! I have two matryoshka dolls myself--- but they are the standard "dolls" not cats. Both were gifts, incidentally, and I think one was from Soviet era Russia. I actually forgot how much I liked them, but was reminded by your blog!
