I'd originally noticed "ugly kitty" 3 weeks ago, my first thought being that is the ugliest thing I've ever seen and I quickly moved on. On my last trip to the thrift store, I noticed that this sad looking kitty was still there. I also noticed that the frame was in decent shape and I could definitely use it for something else. The back was dated April 1st, 1976. Jeez, this kitty is even older than me!
So for $5.99, "ugly kitty" came home with me that day. Once home, the kitty didn't seem so ugly, it was kinda cute now...in a vintage way. I couldn't bring myself to remove the kitty from its frame so now it just sits on the fireplace mantle....staring at me.
