Hooch the Cat lounges in an empty rum shipping crate, a small Shriners' fez perched atop his head above sleepy eyes. Artist Doug Horne claims the mug is based on the urban legend of 'Hooch', a cat that frequented the shipyards (and bars) of Long Beach Harbor, CA during the World War 2; one with a taste for the rum frequently spilled by drunken sailors and dock workers. The cat is matte orange with a glossy red fez sitting in a matte brown crate, a light black wash picks out the details of the sculpt. The ends of the crate are adorned with labels for 'Rum Cat' aged rum.
