Sun Bathing


Sneak peak. They don't look like much in the clay state, but here are three of the heads...the 2 cat heads are Jake and Elwood ...Elwood is the one with his tongue sticking out and head cocked to one side. I don't have Glycerin sculpted yet and she will be fun to paint since she is a calico. I don't think I mentioned she is the reason we have the 2 "monkey-cats". Her 12 year old campanion, Nitro, (yes, their names were Nitro and Glycerin) died last September and she mourned so that she became ill herself and had a heart attack. The vet recommended getting her a new companion and suggested we get 2 instead of 1 since she is also getting up in years and we could be in the same situation again. She is a changed cat, on daily heart meds for the rest of her life, but so playful again! I think we were very fortunate for her recovery and how her health caused us to bring the kittens into our home, which helped us through our grief as well. Strange how things happen. Anyway, I plan on taking liberties with Glycerin's color...substituting orange for the calico carmel color and putting a simpler party hat on her.


Have a great Saturday! Laurie
