Featured Artwork: Sophie Gets a Look at Herself

I have one holiday cat painting, and this is it! Sophie was a little goofy, and spent a good bit of time in obvious contemplation of an object that might be in front of her, or of nothing at all, that I could see, at least. She did at one

From the Archives: The Big Sister, 2007

From December 6, 2007, Cookie cuddles with a very young Mr. Sunshine, just past four months old. You see, it was Cookie who showed the Fantastic Four how to organize those fantastic naps on Mama Bernadette’s desk. So how did Cookie adapt to four vigorous kittens suddenly flying around the

Daily Photo Reprise: My Inspirations, 2011

Coffee and a Cookie? More than that! Inspiration No. 1: Cookie, ready to start the day! Even though she was never a morning torite she’s always been the one to happily accompany me in whatever I do and wherever I go around the house. Inspiration No. 2: my morning coffee,

From The Archives: Cookie’s Minions, 2009

I know everyone’s eyes go first to the eyes of the black cats behind, but mine go to Cookie, who was pointedly ignoring me. She was never a graceful model until her last two years. Behind her is all five of the black cats. Cookie hardly thought of the Five

Daily Photo Reprise: Two-pack, Four-pack, Just As Sweet, 2010

It looks like a two-pack to me, but the girls pack enough sweetness for a four-pack. And remember, Cookie’s original name was “chocolate”, even before it was Chocolate Chip Cookie! She and Kelly each, like most torties, had a lot of chocolate tones in their fur. These are a two-pack

Daily Photo Reprise: Something in the Geraniums, 2011

Cookie never ceased to amaze me…from November 2011. I finally carried my geraniums inside this weekend with the warning of freezing temperatures, and look what I discovered in one of them! A Cookie! She was probably cold and drawn to the lamp, which is nice and warm. Mind you, she

Daily Photo Reprise: Who’ll Stop the Rain? 2011

On a rainy November afternoon in 2011, Cookie was so unhappy with the cold wet rain that she decided to make fun of my habit of quoting lyrics and titles from  pop songs. I’m not sure which of us was acting more absurd: her for wandering around in the rain,

Winter Tips for Pets Outdoors

Even wild animals who live exclusively outdoors need protection in this weather, so of course pets who go outdoors even for just a walk need special care; community cats need shelter, food and unfrozen water.


Commissioned Portrait: Steeler

This portrait is a very special tortoiseshell kitty named Steeler, who I actually had the chance to meet just one time. This portrait was a surprise gift to Steeler’s human, in memory of Steeler. Here is a little of the story of Steeler and her person. Though Steeler and her
