Tuesday Newsday

We has kittens! 

I have never had little kittens before. They are something else. 

You may remember we lost our Missy Kitty a few weeks ago. We decided there was no way we could be a one cat household so we adopted 2 little sisters from Partners for Pets - Maggie and Starla (they were named Magpie and Starling but we thought those were big names for such little kittens...)

They are about 4 months old and quite the little furry rockets - they are everywhere all at once! The "old man" cat of the house, Buster, is not sure what to make of them, but I think he likes them, even if he won't admit it. He looks for them all the time, and a couple days ago I caught them all together: 

Maggie, the little tuxedo kitten, wants to do everything her new big brother does, and it's like he has his own little Mini-Me following him around. (And yes, that is a cabinet full of booze! Stop by and have a drink sometime...)

In other, non-cat news: I've been booked for a show! 

In all the years I've been doing art stuff, I've never had my stuff publicly shown anywhere. But that's about to change. On June 28th I will be part of an event put on by RAW:natural born artists, here in Spokane. This is a national organization with about 65 locations (although until a couple weeks ago I had never heard of them. But I have to admit, I'm not all that up on the local art scene for the most part).
It's a great opportunity for local artists of all kinds: art, photography, music, performance art, fashion and hair and makeup, film. I'm looking forward to participating and I think it sounds like it will be a lot of fun. I'm going to put up some of my Sketchbook art, I think. 
If you happen to be in the area, stop by and say hi!


  1. why do i have to be on the other side of the continent? smiles....have fun at the show...that is awesome!

    and our 6 month old cat is a nut...have fun with those kittens...

  2. Je vous souhaite plein de bonnes choses et de belle rencontres lors de cette future exposition.
    Vos minous sont adorables... j'espère qu'il vous vous rendre la joie que vous aviez perdue avec le départ de votre Kitty.
    gros bisous

  3. Hi! I do really like your artwork in this post. The kittens are really sweet too. Somehow it seems a bit odd to name cats after birds...? I like your adaptations.
    Congratulations on showing your work! Best of luck!!!

  4. LOL. Have fun with the kittens. It may be crazy now with them running around and being silly. But you'll be glad you got two together and around the same age. They'll turn into great pals I'm sure.

  5. Congrats on the show! You know that I've always thought your art was pure genius.

  6. Yay for the show! And yay for the kittehs! I've considered getting two kittens, but ... not sure I'd have the energy to keep up! :)

  7. Dude, kittens are so much fun! But they're a handful. LOL. Enjoy!!!


Grab a cup of coffee and sit down.
