Meow

I love cats. I am fascinated with their beautiful faces, how soft their fur feels when I pet it, and all the cute things they do. Yesterday we took our dog Snooky to the vet for her annual check-up and I got to see Stempy. Stempy belongs to the vet and lives in the office (very large place, with plenty of room for him to roam around). He was lying outside on the deck when we were leaving and I got to pet him. He's a tabby and looks very much like my cat Einstein I'd had for about eight years when Mike and I got married. Einstein went to live with Mike's parents next door, because Mike had a dog who didn't like cats, so I still got to see him pretty often. After about a year, he got kidney disease and had to be put to sleep. So Stempy helps me feel better about missing Einstein.



Last week I took all my cat pins to a store for consignment, so I made two new cat pins today to list in my etsy shop .





For the white one, I used a photo from my cat calendar as the model. I love the one blue eye and one green eye! Such purrsonality!



I bought some Fimo in bright colors a few months ago and have been experimenting with making cats in fantasy colors. This hot pink one would look great with a black and white jacket and hot pink shirt.

What a beautiful cat! The real one, I mean, but of course, your polymer clay work is just exceptional! Great color sense!

Love the two color eyed cat. My best childhood friend had two color eyes. She got a lot of attention about them. I was so jealous. Your art work is beautiful.
