Wanda is a striking black and white kitty with big yellow-green eyes and wily white whiskers.

She is interested in everything in the world around her and is always on the lookout for adventures to share with her doll Rowena.

Every day is a new day to be filled with new surprises and daredevil escapades.

Wanda’s dress is forest green with little blue flowers. Her square neckline has a pale blue ruffle with a gold border. It matches the sash that ties in a big bow at the back. She has white petticoats that can be seen below her hemline.

Rowena has a ruby red dress with gold cuffs, a gold collar, and gold buttons down the front. Rowena’s petticoats are blue and white.
