Carrie is still looking for a similar cat and kittens.
I’m looking for a 50’s Gund Slumber Zipper Cat, which came with a zipper along its back. The Mama cat is sleeping, and her zippered back came with three 3 inch long kittens inside her “pouch”. She’s approximately 15 inches long.
While on a cross-country road trip during the early 60’s, my family stayed at one of many motels. After checking out one morning and driving many miles by the afternoon, my sister–about 6 at the time–realized she could not find her favorite toy, this Gund Slumber Zipper Cat with a pouch containing 3 kittens. She had evidently left it behind at the motel.
My parents called and inquired about it, but the managers said they could not find it. My sister was absolutely inconsolable–she loved that cat, and now it was gone.
As an adult, I have tried without success to find another Gund Slumber Zipper Cat to give to my sister. I know it would still mean a lot to her even after all these years. I found a listing on eBay recently, but I was too late to bid.
If anyone has information about this toy, or has one to sell, I hope they will contact me about it.
Thanks for your time,
