We realize this is a rather bizarre item to put on Rue’s site, but she loved this big fat cat – she carried it from house to house for over 25 years – and we can’t just throw it away or stuff it in a box somewhere. You can see it in the lower right corner of the picture taken in the living room of her California house during a professional photo shoot with her first husband, and the father of her only child (this was 30 years after they divorced when they started dating again – oh, Rue!). You can also see it next to the fireplace in the living room her Manhattan apartment decades later. Even though she had exquisite rare art and beautiful, museum-quality handmade wooden furniture in the living room, she kept these old dear friends around, too. We will even include a print of the last photo taken (no hair or makeup, sorry Rue) of Rue with the fat cat in the background. It stands over a foot high and is close to the same wide. Comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Estate of Rue.
