My Three Sons do their best to make a browsing experience in my shop more enjoyable for friends who stop by for a few things.
Susan visited to do a little shopping on Sunday and the kids were thrilled. After some arranging and rearranging as she and I talked and she browsed, I saw that Giuseppe, Mr. Sunshine and Jelly bean had lined up on the dresser in front of the display. My cats regularly sit there because it’s a great lookout spot, seeing all the room, up the steps and out both windows. But really, they were interested in her. Who could resist?
I call it my shop though it’s just a tight little display. Little by little I’ve been expanding it, but I like to think of it as a shop. I love to turn the lights on within it and just look at it.
And not a cat in sight, but she took a photo of me as I added up her purchases. She asked me to look at her and I was like, “Hmm?” then I realized she’d taken my photo! But I never really know what I look like so a photo of me is nice!
Susan had another reason to visit too. She is actually the human of the kitties in the portrait of the three calico cats, Percy, Augie and Ebi and the rescue story The August Kitten. Obviously I’ve done a few portraits for her, and she has always had cats. She lost one earlier this year and has been catless for a while, and mentioned she was interested in the Greenbriar kittens after I posted about them. So we went over to visit them after she did her shopping, and she decided to adopt two of them! More on that in another post.
And on Saturday kitties had a visit from Auntie Norma Clouse who stopped to give them each a new, fresh, handmade catnip toy! A party was had by all, and then they had a big nap before it started all over again. Thanks so much, Norma!
