Great Rescues Day Book: Portraits of Cats, Rescue Stories, a Day Book and Feline Care Book

I’ve used a day book for over 30 years and have all the arrivals and, sadly, departures of each of my cats along with my friends’ weddings, my nieces’ births and the births of their children, the day I first registered a business name, all that sort of stuff, conveniently included in one place.

Bella! and Her Foster Friends Tote Bags

In May I created a silhouette from Bella and stenciled it in onto a canvas or twill bag and embellished with buttons sewn on by hand. I know that not all kitties are black, despite what my house full of housepanthers try to tell me, and I decided to try out a few other kitty […]

I also like to feature new artwork, and I painted this in September during the […]

It’s Time for Meow-lo-ween!

Mimi is very proud of how her children have found a career as artist models. This sketch, “Spooked on Halloween”, from Halloween night in 2012 as I handed out my candy and all the knocking got to be a bit much for these four was destined to be a Halloween design. I designed the card […]
