Penny is still looking for Taffi. She writes:
I’ve been looking for something like 10 years. I have my doubts that she was ever made. Just part of the pamphlet that came with the rest. I found a miniature of her but still want the plush version of her. I tried disguising an extra Miz Maudie once, but that was just temporary insanity.
I’ve enclosed the best photo, actually, the only photo I have of Taffi. The reason I’m looking for her is because I started collecting the Purrrsonality Cats a little over 8 years ago.
The date on the Taffi Cat is 1986. She is an orangish tabby cat with a topknot tied with a pink (I think) bow on top of her head(she’s a trendy one). She’s wearing a necklace with a red heart around her neck.
She’s a long hair Tabby that will probably stand 13″ tall give or take some. The rest of the collection is approximately that height. Oh yes, she’s probably on the chubby side.
I found my first Purrrsonality Cat in a thrift shop that had just opened. His name is Franklin the Top Cat, the distinguished male out of the three male cats. There is Chuck, the Physi-Cat, the athletic one, Lester the Whiz Cat, the professor type cat, and Miz Maudie the Tender-Loving Cat, very proper.
Then there’s Taffi, the Trendy Tabby, the, well, trendy lady cat. The elusive Taffi is the only one left to complete the set. I have yet to talk to anyone that has even seen her. Hallmark also made Merry Miniatures of the group. I found Taffi a couple of times as a miniature, but I didn’t collect them.
I want the plush version of Taffi, because it will complete a set that has been difficult to collect. The Cats are a family and without Taffi, it’s hollow. I appreciate anything you will do to help.
