Mudadora. A grey tiger cat, "Dora", chasing a mouse in vain. It is "muda", a wasted effort.

Travelling cats were drawn in the Edo period by Ukiyo-e artist Kuniyoshi Utagawa. Kuniyoshi likened 53 stations on the historical Tokaido road with 55 comically twisted gestures of cats. The series is known as "Myokaiko Gojusanbiki".

The patches can be ironed on cotton and polyester materials. Use a damp cloth under the iron when ironing, and be extra careful if you are ironing on heat-sensitive materials. Machine-stitching is recommended to enhance strength.
