I'll stick with biological washing liquid. It uses enzymes which become active at low temperatures and target organic muck only.

Thanks Sue,
I usually use Fairy non -Bio,

so i will try it on my glass

I'm horribly allergic to bio stuff - I keep it for glass only - with rubber gloves.
I also keep distilled water (I grow insect-eating plants which require this) and I use it for the final rinse in decanters and bottles, before putting in a "wick" of kitchen roll.
Cheers, Sue (M)

I wash a good many dirty animals. I just let them come to room temperature, then wash them in romm temp water with normal dishwashing detergent. The dirt build-up on them is rarely corrosive or crystallized, so it usually washes off with no problem. Occasionally I have to finish with a wet swab to get some crevice grime that didn't come clean.

Andy i believe the Felix with the black nose and fat face were later cartoons but the early silent movie one was more like Dawns , over the years they have changed him to make him more attractive the early one used to frighten the life out of some kids , imagine the 20s dim light, films that flickerd , lights out in the room and that ugly critter that sort of thing scared kids not like todays brats . There have been many variations.

Of the pieces we have that I am pretty certain of, that this cat is Japanese.

Thank you to everyone for your comments and suggestions - I've been reading and searching for your suggested leads. I never realised that this would be so difficult to identify! I've yet to find anything that looks just like it, so I will just have to leave the cat-bear-rat-mouse-thing on the shelf looking pretty until something similar appears to compare! Mind you, half the fun is all the other things you come across while you are looking! :)

Thanks.

~Dawn~
