Hagen Renaker Specialty & Mini Cats

This page features Specialty and mini cats. Miniature cats can be just as hard to find as the rarest DW cats. I have two more pages of mini cats pictured. I have some test pieces pictured too. Test pieces can be very hard to find but I was able to buy several on Ebay a few years ago and have bought a few more from other collectors.

Hagen Renaker Mini Thumb Sucking Cats

Hagen Renaker Mini Kittens

This tiny kitten is hard to find in Siamese
These kittens are confusing
There are supposed to be 2 styles, but they all look different to me
I think the 1st kitten is style 1, which is thicker
The last kitten has a thinner, longer tail
The rest seem to have slightly different legs
Maybe there are lots of variations of this kitten
