Cats were the original rodent control. Saving humanity from several waves of plagues throughout the ages. In Mexican Folk Life they are respected for their one important task especially in agrarian villages. This medium sized blue eyed house cat by Avelino portrays it's prowess and importance with a removable rata carved with an insert that allows for insertion into the mouth. The cat with mouse motif is one that has persisted in La Union.
