NAME THAT TCHOTCHKE!

AKA What did I buy today at a charity yard sale?
  1. Front view.
    It's a cat, it's cute & quirky, but what is it?!
  2. Top view.
    Holes. Are they for pens? Flowers? Chopsticks?
  3. Back view.
  4. Side view 1.
  5. Side view 2.
    With tail.
  6. Bottom view.
    Made in Portugal. Authorized copy. And some letters/numbers. Not sure if they are dates or codes or signatures.
  7. Any ideas? I'll probably use it on my desk for pens or something.
