Here Kitty, Kitty, Kitty! - My Unintentional Garden Cat Collection

I Rescued these from an antique store, simply because they were filthy dirty and in need of some love and attention.  Sort of like pet rescue on a different level.

Unbeknownst to me, at the time of purchase, this appears to be the entire set of "Garden Cat".

It was only produced from the fall of 1996 to 1997 and, as far as I have been able to ascertain, the only sizes produced were the  1 quart (A-1-B), 2 quart (A-2-B) and 3 quart (A-3-B).

As interesting as they are, the jury is still out as to whether they are staying in my collection or not.

UPDATE: 7-12-2014   Well, they didn't stay in my collection.  My mother saw this blog post and fell in love with them, so they are gracing her kitchen now, along with her Shadow Iris.  

Where is your Corning Ware??
