This ceramic tile, although based on a 17th century design, is very familiar to me. Several times a day, I feel the gaze of four unblinking, grey/green feline eyes, as the cats silently remind me that I'm delinquent in feeding, brushing, opening/closing doors, and otherwise serving them. So while I won't be installing the Os Gatos tile in my kitchen, it might very well be suited to yours. deferranti.com
