Somehow this item has tiki in the description. Can any of you shed any light on how this is possible?

Perhaps kitty is the anti-tiki. Tiki- Kiti
the Tiki is the male essence , the Tik, The Pussy is the er... Where's this going. It sucks when people put Tiki or Shag-like on their crappy descriptions.

Man, cat's have been "Tiki" from the beggining. Ask Sven. He knows everything about "Tiki". Especially, the cats!!!

If tanuki can be tiki, why couldn't cats be tiki?

(Of course, a tanuki with gigantic testicles, an empty wine bottle, an umbrella to shade himself with, and a book of IOUs instead of money is probably a little closer to the final I in the tiki continuum than a Maneki-neko teapot, for example.)

This cat isn't the usual case of e-bay chicanery and L@@K RARE falshood. The name figurine's name is "Quan Tiki," which goes along with "Quan Yen," an older production line from Hagen Renaker. Basically, all this this crap is like Hummel figurines, but cheesier and les refined.

Thanks for the clarification. I still think Quan Tiki sounds like an old, defunct Tiki Bar nestled away in a once-happenin' area of South/Central L.A. that had the coolest mugs and scorpion bowls.

One can only dream, eh?
