Plow & Hearth Whimsical Cat & Mouse Wind Spinner w/ Copper Finish
I bought this because it was unusual, something I haven't seen before. I wanted something to put in an old cement umbrella stand that's too heavy to move. It doesn't have the fork-like bottom that a lot of other garden decorations have. For some, that might not be good because it would have a tendency to lean. It does spin, or I should say turn. Doesn't really go around like I thought it would. Mine came damaged, maybe it was a return. The spot where the ear and head meet has no copper on it. It looks like it was welded together with something with a silver finish. I still like it and got it during a lunch-time special.
I have wanted 2 of these since I first seen them. I was so excited to see it as a lunchtime special and I ordered two. They arrived a few days ago and I opened the boxes to look at them and they look just like they do on TV. I am waiting for spring so I can place them in my yard. Since they are bronze I decided to put one on each side of my white shed. I can't wait for it to warm up to put them out. They look well made and are a nice size.
If you are looking for a "very cute" yard ornament then I would recommend this however I bought it for a spinner. It would take hurricane winds to make this spin! Bought the rabbit one as well, sent them both back.
This is in my garden among the azaleas to commemorate my cat Marlowe who recently died. It is well made and the action is smooth and makes you laugh out loud.
Love Love Love!
I love this cat! How about a life sized squirrel chasing a nut?
Love the Cat Theme
This looked good in the picture online so I ordered it, being a major cat person! I like the color of the metal and the overall design. However, the cat merely sits on a knob at the top of the stake. There is nothing holding it on. Therefore I am not sure how well the cat will stay on the stake during a heavy wind. You have to balance it just right to get it to stay when you first put it up. It has slipped once or twice but not fallen completely off. It looks wonderful in my yard, I just hope it holds up in heavy wind. I wish there was a way to affix the cat to the stake so that it won't fall off so easily. Other than that, I love it!!! My neighbors love it also.
wonderful yard art gift
all of plow & hearth's metal yard art is wonderful. i have 3 or 4 i purchased directly from them before i knew qvc carried them, too. bought the cat and mouse as a gift. sadly, it came with bent ears and i don't think it was supposed to, was it? i gave it anyway hoping she would think it was a scottish fold! she loved it. i will probably order one for my own yard to go with my menagerie. only complaint i have is that my other pieces rusted in the bends and folds of the designs within a year, and some pieces, like ears and tails, have completely fallen off. maybe because they are near a pool? maybe i will spray new ones with a clear lacquer. for the price, they make wonderful gifts.
bought this as a gift for a cat lover and its a winner! Lovely color and we watch it in the summer breeze - like it lots
Cutest Ornament EVAH!!!
This has got to be the cutest thing I've ever seen! Wasn't sure it would be as nice as shown on tv, but it's even better. Every time I look in the yard and see it spinning around I have to smile - how many things in life make you do that! Worth every cent and then some.
I am so glad I ordered 2! One for my garden, and the friend who received the other one as a gift has been very happy with her garden decoration. Another benefit, not everyone has one.
Such a cute kitty!!!
I am a proud crazy cat lady, and I absolutely love this wind spinner! It is very nicely made, and is even cuter than I had anticipated. I just adore the cat's whickers and it is so funny to watch him spin around in my flower bed. I placed him in front of the windows where my cats hang out, and they also enjoy watching the kitty spin around outside. If you are also a crazy cat lady like myself, you will enjoy adding this spinner to your yard. I definitely recommend it!
cat and dog
I bought both the cat and dog and they both were broken by the third week of being outside. I was not pleased for the price I paid. They were very cheaply made.
