We recently worked on this family with several cats for an order from Oliver and Adelaide. We thought it would be a great opportunity to give a quick how-to on painting cats. To paint your cats, begin by painting the doll bodies a solid color (we like to use 1" peg dolls), a color that most represents your cat. Then, begin building on all the layers. We like to use a flesh tone for the noses. We use a very thin round brush for painting the details. See here for tips on how to customize your brush even more. Once you have finished, seal them off with a top coat. We like to use a matte finish.
