THE 1986 CATS + DOGS​

1986 FIRST RUN

These were the first run of 1986 cats and are identifiable by their embroidered tush tags with a 1986 Copyright date and

airbrushed points of their ears, face, paws, and tail.  These were in production starting 10/15/1986 per patent information.  This run was shipped directly to Ty’s residence which were then airbrushed, repacked, and shipped to retailers just in time for Christmas of 1986.

Ty has been quoted stating it all started with the original 10 Himalayan Cats, no time in early Ty history were exactly 10 cats ever produced by any records I have obtained.  The above list is still theoretical as some have not yet been confirmed. I do know that the flat cats were produced first and the following shipments would include seated Himalayan cats meaning the flat dogs could account for the total as noted above and Ty quoted this for simplicity in context of the interview.

The second wave of 86 cats were also produced in the Himalayan version later in production as evidenced by their order form.  The Himalayan versions were write in orders only with a $2.50 premium for the regular size and $2.00 for baby size.  This order form also noted write in orders for small heart plush meaning Himalayan versions and small heart would have been produced t about the same time.  Orders were completed in July of 1987 for shipment in September.
