Vintage 1970s Real Soft Toys Large Grey Cat Made In England Watford

Beautiful vintage Real Soft Toys large grey cat created & manufactured in Watford, Herts, England from the 1970s.
This cat is in such perfect condition considering its age, it mustve been kept in storage all these years as the fur is still so soft and it still has original tags.
The cat measures 13 inches in height approx.
Real Soft Toys were founded in 1969 by R. M. Francis & Son. The factory was on an industrial estate in Watford. As well as the cats they made dogs, bears and occasionally other animals. They were taken over by Lefray Toys in the 1980’s.
The information above leads me to believe this cat was definitely made in the 1970s.
