Studio Cats Growing Up!

They are getting old enough and BIG enough that it is time for them to
learn to be in the studio unsupervised for short times…
We clip their nails and their are rules…
*hahahahahaaaaa rules will be broken in our absence*
but it is nice to be able to walk down the hall to the finish room
and not have to round them up!

So this day we were working in the finish room
*always a no-cats zone — chemicals can hurt them*
and they stayed out!  BUT…
There was a beetle bug on the ceiling and that was their focus!
All three sat on the cat tree or on the edge of the table, watching the bug…
not a good test of their well-behaved-ness!
Yaman also howled for an hour because it is his job to not only catch the bugs
before they get us but to make sure we KNOW he is on the job.

They didn’t like it when we disappeared… It’s nice to be missed.

BTW, Hari-Gibbs-Fred is not a favorite, nor is he easier to sketch
*though all-black Yaman can be tough sometimes*
It is, simply, he doesn’t run from the camera or walk away when I am sketching!
Sam is an old man who spends his days curled in the travel container
with bursts of wild energy where he runs around like a kitten again!
Yaman and Savitri must have the deep rooted belief that capturing their likeness
is going to steal their soul; they will wake if the camera is near
and run, look away, or turn their butts to you!!

  1. I enjoyed reading today’s post. I miss my cat every time I have to leave for a trip. When I get home there’s a whole lot of cuddling and purring which I just love. I have cameras going so I can always see what she’s up to.

    Whatever would we do without our beloved cats? One of ours has a purr that sounds like a low flying helicopter and the purr can last for a long, long time….sweet when I’m working at my computer and she snuggles up on my lap; not quite so sweet at 2 a.m. when she wants to cuddle and her “motor” is running full blast. Our 3 sweet girls make life very interesting.


I love hearing from visitors!
