A Great Rescue: Milan and Felix

TWO ADULT CATS who’d lost their people but found their way to the same rescuing household; we build our rescued families first out of need and then out of love—do we really find our way to each other, animals and people, until we’re where we should be? . . .

Daily Sketch Reprise: Their Faces in the Sun, 2013

Mimi and Mewsette settled in the sun from the window on the landing, both of them enjoying the wash of the warm light on their faces as the shadows crept up over their backs. Often, big soft Mewsette settles somewhere and soon I see little Mimi tucked up against her,

I did an initial sketch,

Daily Photo: Smokie in a Basket

Smokie wants to show that he can look as cute as Bella in the basket, so he modeled for a series of photos. What can I do but oblige, especially with those crazy eyes? And then he decides to relax, wrestle with Bean, then relax some more. What a life!

Book Review: “Double Trouble A thru Z”

Do we know brothers and the trouble they can get into? And a human who records it in sketches and photographs? No, it’s not our household here at The Creative Cat, it’s Bugsy and Knuckles and their human HH or “Her Highness” who photographs and draws and paints the two

Hairballs, Not So Funny

The last Friday in April is honorarily Hairball Awareness Day, and before you either yawn and click somewhere else or have a laugh at what seems like a good joke, read on a bit. I remember reading in a Q&A in a cat care newsletter years ago, “Why Do Cats
