I recently acquired this cat.  I'm trying to figure out if it's just a replica or if it has any value.  It has some of the features from an Antonio Da Ros piece.  There aren't any markings that I can find.  It looks as if there was a sticker on the bottom that was removed.

hello and welcome to the GMB :)          Sorry, not a clue is the answer to your question, but would just add that very unlikely anyone here will provide you with a value, which of course contrary to your countrymen who are usually very forthcoming with valuations.    We all buy pieces occasionally in the hope that the piece has value, which assume is why you've acquired this pussy, though unfortunately it doesn't always work.
Even if this one is a replica only, it's still a good looking cat, and worthy of a good home.

Regrettably not remotely my area, but in view of your comments you're obviously aware of similar Murano/Da Ros pieces, though it appears from the lack of replies there may be few here who follow your passion.            As a matter of interest are you able to say what 'some of the features from an Antonio Da Ros piece' are, and have you floated your question on any of the States glass forums?

It certainly has features Of the Antonio de Ros Cenedese pieces.....particularly the offset neck which does not appear to be a feature of any other art glass cat figurines, but tracking down a labelled piece, or a book reference, might take a while.
