SOMETIMES WE DON’T realize until years later that a series of odd circumstances has an intention beyond our control; often this involves the entry of one of our most cherished animal companions into the sphere of our life, and our entry into theirs. ~~~ One of the Great Rescues families, Bandit is one of my […]

Sophie Keeps an Eye on Things in Your Garden

Sophie could use any prop to dramatic effect, and the lace curtains were her favorite. Of course, you can’t see her. But if you look closely you might see a cat’s face through the lace that might have Sophie’s big green eyes with heavy eye-liner, and her tabby babushka and outlined nose. These “garden flags” […]

Mewsette is on the Afghan, and a Whole Lot of Other Things!

Mewsette nearly blends in with the afghan. Even though I sketched her there in February, the bright colors and warm feelings always seem to belong with the winter holidays. I’ll admit, this took a little longer than the usual 15 minutes maximum. I’d been holding off the sketches with this afghan just because I knew […]

Cookie’s Holiday Cheer, and the Photo Shoot That She Directed

You know that Cookie is usually the sweetest tortoiseshell kitty you’d ever want to meet, but she’s less than thrilled about modeling. Especially when she’s been…”decorated”. I’m here to tell you, though, that this whole thing was her idea! And I have the video to prove it. Cookie’s expression may have you thinking otherwise, but […]

December Feline Featured Artwork and Desktop Calendar: “Afternoon Nap”

A Portrait of an Old Cat: Afternoon Nap ~~~ An old cat, a gentleman, he has found a quiet spot, upstairs in the afternoon, and has so perfectly placed himself a little off-center on the expanse of white bedspread, illuminated by stark winter light through the window.
