The latest addition to my family...his name is GSP loves him in a strange interspecies way, however my other two cats seem offended/insulted about his existence. He seems relaxed takes it all in stride which set him as the mellowest cat I've ever had

yeah I had to search the net a bit to find the proper description of him...Best we could come up with is "a white Tabby with Agouti ticking" Agouti ticking being the tendency of the ears tail and feet to be darker than the body much like an Abyssinian (probably the desert cat you were thinking of Jackie). We're not certain that he's gonna keep the blue eyes but for now that's another really cool thing about him. Zipper, our black cat, has decided that while she's not ready to snuggle down with him, evening crazies can definitely be spent with an energetic kitten not Grommet but sorta like this. Alas Sketch our stump-tailed tabby still looks upon him as an alien creature

mine is a Japanese Temple cat they are traditionally born with, shall we say deformed tails...bent, stumps, kinked corkscrew etc. Sketch's tail isn't bobbed it has all the musculature of a full length tail wrapped around 5 inches of bones....very strong little stump.

Life without a Cell Phone

A good day in the studio

In general this week was horrible I got Gastro and lost a half my remaining class days to finish the pair of sculptures I'm working on.......however today was good I got about 3 hours of alone time in the studio, just my my tools (a pair of angle grinders with wood cutting/shaping disks) a block of wood and a dust collector......... I put about 5 inches of chips in the dust collector and got a good start on the last piece. Go »

Oh what a day
