You’ve no doubt seen the Blue Kitty in the background of a lot of photos!
This is how it came to be, along with this collaborative creative effort between me and the Fantastic Four.

I have such talented children.

Mom brought home this strange new kitty yesterday, and we just can’t seem to figure it out. We’ve tried everything we can think of to get it to talk to us, but it just doesn’t even move. We’ve decided to ignore it from now on and see if that does anything.

I picked this up at the second hand store when I purchased baskets and other small items for my shop. At first I passed it up thinking it was a little tacky, but then I decided that I could use it. Why not? Who knew when I’d need a feline silhouette to add to a gift basket or give to someone or just add to my shop’s interest. Then I thought I might remove the ribbon and paint it solid black and letter “Black Cats Welcome Here” on its belly. Then I thought I might leave one side black and speckle the other side with black, orange, white, gray and peach, and letter “Tri-color Cats are Mutants” on that side.

But really, I wanted to get at least one photo of one of my kitties with the blue kitty. Little did I know the Big Four would visit the new kitty through the day! Or do they really read my mind…
