Most of the time, we love our cats, but less so when they start singing to each other in the small hours of the morning. Emma’s cats on the handsome 7/10 shape are a motley crew. They could be feline politicians or hedgerow marauders: they could be fierce warriors or cuddly friends, but when they sing, almost immediately they become the cat next door. Loyalty is a word rarely used to describe cats, even by adoring humans, and after dispatching your favourite robin or emptying a neighbours milk bowl, he or she is more likely than not to creep through the cat flap of a neighbour’s house, find a comfortable cushion and sleep off the experience.
At the start, a strong body of opinion at Moorcroft wanted Emma’s Cats Chorus design to be called ‘caterwauling’ but for cat owners, that is not a nice word at all. On the other hand, Cats Chorus embraces a number of the more acceptable characteristics of our homely little moggies. After all, the word chorus implies harmony, good order and total synchronization. Nice cats can sing a chorus. Nasty cats caterwaul.
Emma’s cats are nice cats. They may be singing a chorus or they may be simply passing the time of day among friends to discuss the new bird bath installed at Number 12 down the road. There is a strong argument that one cat may be about to propose to another. Who knows? At the end of the day, the really nice thing about nice cats is that they are always doing everything you think that a nice cat should be doing. Cats Chorus is a happy work of art, designed to be an acknowledgement that many of us believe that cats, as well as dogs, can be our best friends. As a limited edition of 60 pieces (height 10"/25cm) the 7/10 Cats Chorus vase is a breath of fresh air and a new look by a successful Moorcroft designer at the strange world of cats.
