BUSY BUSY BUSY

I have been so busy busy busy!   Here is an update of what has been going on....

Firstly, my gallbladder decided to leave me.  One of the strangest situations I have been through.  Really... just weird and quick and painful.  But all  is well now and I am in great health again.   



My new job as Sanctuary Manager at FRoNN is going great.   Do not let anyone tell you that working at a rescue is easy work.  You work HARD!  But there are magnificent perks and you are surrounded by kitty cats all day.   I love my job!   I am so grateful for the opportunity to work there.

We opened a gift shop at FRoNN and I was able to enlist the amazing talents of some ETSY artists/crafters I have become acquainted with.  It is a consignment shop with FRoNN's portion going to help the cats.   Of course my Binky cat toys and paintings are available there :)

I am pretty excited about this because one of my goals for FRoNN is to make it a happening place where people can come to hang out, enjoy fun events, and learn about cats and how to help them.

Now with the holidays approaching I am gearing up to get in my workshop to sew and paint!

And just because they are my muses, here are a couple of photos of Mischa and Sammy.  :)

CAT COMMODITIES

 WANT! WANT! WANT!

So I found this amazing shop on ETSY called CatastrophiCreations  who are makers of some of the grooviest cat furniture ever!

Along with some very functional, affordable, and quality cat shelves, play sets, and bridges they have created this purr-fect water fountain.




I love this!  And yes the price tag is up there but I think considering it is handmade and so creative, that is is worth the price!   

I will have to sell lots of cat toys to get one of these for Mischa and Sammy.  But then maybe Santa will bring them one since they are so good :)

Be sure to check out this wonderful shop for fun functional cat furniture.

CAT FACTS


NEW ADVENTURE

Starting in about a week I will be working my new job as Sanctuary Manager at Feline Rescue of Northern Nevada.   HURRAH!!!!   



This is a dream job for me.  I have always admired people who found work doing something they love.  And now I will be one of them.

I will still be making toys and painting ..... most likely more inspired because of my new employment.

CAT ART - Jazzberry Blue

Featured in this post of Cat Art is artist Jazzberry Blue

His work is awesome and his wide range of subjects includes cats.  What is there not to love?

Jazz is a self taught artist based and born in Toronto. His work as a painter allowed him to spend his formal years living in India instead of going to school. He recently learned digital illustration by watching youtube instructional videos.

Here is some of his work....
