FESTIVE ATTIRE

Jane at SNOOP CATTY CATT donated some adorable accessories for the cats at the sanctuary where I work.  But I just couldn't resist taking a few photos of Sammy and Mischa in them before.  





If you would like to dress up your kitty for the holidays be sure to visit Jane's store.  Each accessory is handmade with lots of love and care.


LEAF US INSIDE!

Fall is our most favorite time of year.  Halloween, cool air, falling and changing colors of the leaves, scarves and sweaters, snuggling up with blankets on the sofa... and that is just what Mischa and Sammy love about it.   

 Mischa

But Fall can be a dangerous time of year for cats and many other animals as real human monsters prey on them for inhumane tricks and ceremony.  

Sammy

So please take extra caution and keep your pets indoors and safe during this month.  They will be mad at you but at least they will be unharmed.

New Painting

I recently finished this painting....



It is  24" x 30"  and dedicated to Feline Rescue of Northern Nevada.



I was thinking of a cat in a box when I painted it but some have said it looks like a kitty looking through a window waiting. I like both interpretations!



Mischa & Sammy's New Pad

We redesigned Mischa and Sammy's outdoor play area today and we are so happy to report that they approve! Hurrah!

This is a photo of the area before.....


It was fabulous with a tall tree climber that they enjoyed. But sadly the tree stump was the home of ants who had ate so much of the inside of the tree that it was falling over.

So after much work and some heebie-jeebies from the bugs we came up with this....


This is a solar owe red cat night light guarding the catnip.


The pink flamingo is more for me and my love for the Wonderfall series. But the cats don't mind it.

The Radio Flyer wagon was a find from my last job and makes a nice bed.   Mischa and Sammy in the wagon!


Until they tell us otherwise I am guessing this will do.

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.  :)
