Width: 7.75" Length: 12"

Materials/Techniques: Cotton fabrics donated by Malcolm Perry, Opal Vega, Doris Messimer, machine quilted. The bakeneko was cut out and appliquéd, the fish is courtesy of Janet Cook.

Artist Statement: When I researched "nekomusume" (quilt #15,113), I found out about bakeneko (the monster cat). Wikipedia says that in Japanese folklore, an ordinary cat can turn into a monster cat if it is over 10 years old, weighs over 8.5 pounds or has a very long tail. (Having lived with a 17-year-old cat, I can believe it!) This bakeneko has naughtily pulled a fish from the garden pond.
