Daily Photo Reprise: Studio Cats Working Hard

Bean takes advantage of all the color-balanced lights to make certain his little white thong is sparkling clean. I have different uses for my studio accommodations and all the lights I’ve installed, but on a cool rainy day I’m outnumbered in there. Jelly Bean and Mr. Sunshine permitted me a

Daily Photo Reprise: National Yarn Day

What is sweeter than a senior tortie cat sleeping on a freshly-finished shawl? As someone who has been a yarn or threadworker for all my life, I can’t pass up National Yarn Day, even though it was yesterday—and my cats celebrate along with me because my family of felines have

“Kelly’s Morning Bath” Block Print on Handmade Papers

The Kelly’s Morning Bath duo was the first feline pictorial block print I designed all the way back in 1998, even before The Tortie Girls duo of block prints. I was literally inspired by Kelly’s daily morning bath in front of the big casement window, sketched it up and cut

Vintage Photos: October 3, A Homecoming Day

Namir and Kelly mirror each others’ sleeping positions on the couch, in 2000. . . . . . . . It’s always a bittersweet day for me, one in the cycle of the comings and goings of felines in my household, but I mark it each year in memory knowing

From the Archives: Autumn Sun, 2008

A series reminiscent of yesterday’s Sunny Morning, same window opening but totally different bathroom as well as a different cat. Kelly lazily observes something high up the sunny window as the sun’s warmth both shines and reflects on her, from 2008. The light is so warm and the various patterns

Daily Photo Reprise: Mimi Becomes “One of the Girls”, 2010

Here, the “Golden Girls”, the “Tri-color Trio”, my three most senior kitties, Kelly at 17, Peaches at 20 and Cookie at 18, have their dinner on the cabinet in the middle of the kitchen while Mimi longingly, or slyly, I wasn’t sure, looks on. Apparently, she had a plan. Mimi

Poetry: For Pet Memorial Sunday

I’ll be speaking a little later today about “Loving Again After Loss, Why We Adopt Pets” at the Pet Memorial Sunday Ceremony by Chartiers Custom Pet Cremation and remembering again all the cats who came to shape my life and left me a better person. Just as my cats have

Vintage Photo: Get a Bath, Pay It Forward, 2010

In photos from this day in August 2010, Dickie, Kelly and Cookie have a chain reaction bath. You get a free bath, you return the favor by giving a free bath to someone else. First, Dickie, the main bath giver of the time, stopped Kelly and gave her a bath

Daily Photo Reprise: A Little Dose of Afternoon Sweetness, 2011

From August 16, 2012: I have a video to share of total sweetness in a kitty. You might remember that Kelly was my Lead Crochet Tester, and that she immediately occupied anything crocheted in any form—under construction, headed for the wash, being worn by me, it didn’t matter, when Kelly

Daily Sketch Reprise: Kelly Has a Drink, 2012

What legs! Kelly really does have long legs, especially when she does her drinking dance, solidly planting all four paws, then prancing her hind paws and waving her tail while she drinks. There’s something so precious about Kelly drinking; I think it has to do with her timid nature, yet
