This is a reproduction of a sticker originally produced in Egypt in 2012. The background is a bright reddish pink, similar to amaranth. A cat with wings is either in flight or leaping off the ground. The front third of the cat is normal, but the cat grows more grotesque past its front shoulders. The skin and tissue is missing from the middle of its body. Only four ribs are visible; everything else is gone. One of the cat’s legs is bone; the other is covered in fur. The tail is slightly scraggly. There is a barcode on one side of the image.
