My Ode to Cats- In My Life and in Art


I love you my darling cats. Jackie, even when you jump off the
plant shelf and land with a huge bang on MJ's drawing table.... I may jump 10 feet, but I still love you.


Or when you have a wild game of "run and tumble" with your siblings at 2 am, I'm usually up sewing anyway.


Even little Kirby's turning into a vampire that one night wasn't that bad. He was abandoned at such a young age I guess the suckling thing is to be expected.

But sometimes I like my cats to be artwork. It's nice to look at a painting or sculpture of a cat. No biting or scratching or craziness. Just beautiful cats.

the etsy shop run by Cheryl Ellicott shows cats in all their regal beauty. I am so in love with Devon Rex Prince M. I love to look at this beautiful
painting.

But sometimes the joy of having
a cat is witnessing it's occasional zaniness. Papermoongallery's cats are so charming. I love the giant eyes and teeny legs these sculpts have. Sophisticated Kitty Cat is quite the charmer. http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5021458

Yes, I'm a crazy cat lady and I do love my cats.

Cat people are cool people! Have you seen the cats on my Other People web page? http://www.dollworx.com/op.html
I love drawing and painting cats, especially as people.

I'm especially fond of puns as my string quartet of longhair cats shows. Also, who has more attitude than a flamenco dancer or a cat? A flamenco dancer who's a cat, let alone 3 of them!

Cats rule!!
