I like the paws.

 

The amber 267 is beautiful. Been considering one myself.

At least you've solved the riddle of how the paw prints got on the nib in the first place.  Those are great, but now I need a roll-stopper for my laughter.

Where did you find those roll stops? They are great but I like options 1-3 the best and could see buying one of them.

Driften, these are inexpensive adjustable rings found on eBay. Search terms are cat, wrap ring, adjustable.

I like the paws, but the art deco even more. I have a fox that's a lot like your literal cat, and I don't like the head sticking out so much. In the end. When I first saw the picture, of course it spoke to me, and I bought it. I had it on a pen for a while. It's now resting, waiting for me to change my mind again.

Turns out I like rollstoppers that really hug the cap. Who knew?

My vote was for "Art Deco Cat" -- most of the others looked like overkill (it's the same reaction I have to the Ariel Kulloch Fantasy 51s: while I admire the artistry, it is sort of the antithesis of the understated look of the pen).

OTOH, I really like the paws, with the art deco cat being second. The paws are a wonderful play on cat behavior - "it's mine, and I am going to grab it!"

Sharon, Ruth, excellent pointts. The Cartoon Paws ring grips very well, and I agree Art Deco is subtle. Art Deco seems to be winning here and on Facebook and Instagram. Few votes for the Tom & Jerry stoppers, but they tell a fun story. I enjoy no. 5.

Thank you for this response. I just spent 20 minutes looking for adjustable dragonflies for my own pens!

Sharon, a dragonfly sounds beautiful. Also Etsy is an option. Usually higher end, but sterling silver for under $20. this shop, which also has an eBay account as seller yassenl, is excellent. But cheaper to order direct from the site than through eBay.

I love Art Deco.  It has a classy, yet understated look about it.

I absolutely love the Art Deco look!!!  Even though I previously commented, after taking another look, I still like that Art Deco cat!
