I really like Kirsten's cats! They're smaller than I thought, but very cute and very soft. Their eyes are like the dolls eyes, not painted on or anything like that. I also like the little yarn ball with the kitten. A+!
I have the original black cats. They are very soft and cute! Pics may be coming later of them. They are pretty small, also. It looks like they have eyes that are similar to doll's eyes, too. Their tongues are also sticking out! So cute!

I have the original gray cats (before the black ones). I'm not overly fond of them. They have hard bodies, real rabbit fur fur and beady little eyes. I think they're ugly. They are very well made and have stood up to almost 17 or 18 years of sitting on Kirsten's bed. D for looks, A+ for quality.

We bought the pair of cats in 2008, and they no longer have the plastic eyes and whiskers, instead both features are stitched on. It looks fine, really, just expect that when you buy them - also there is no more wire in their tails. The cats are much more to scale than humongous JLY Licorice, and are the perfect accessory for Kirsten. A

I have the real fur black cats, with emerald green eyes. They have stickers that say they were made in West Germany. Very soft, I personally think they are cuter than the new ones. If you have a problem with fur, you should get the newer set, but if it is not a big deal to you, the original cats are darling.

I bought my daughter this set last year when it was on sale. We bought it for Mia. :-) I definitely would recommend it. The cats are soft, and I like the eyes. Nibs has some great pictures of it above. Because there are two cats, it increases the playability. The only problem we've had with it, is the yarn ball has come undone a little. I think I can rectify that with a bit of glue.
Overall, though, I'd give this set an A. I enjoy the soft body animals far more than the hard body ones.
