Just a brief glimpse of my studio, cats and all! I am blessed because I specialize in dried florals. Cats are known for specializing in dried floral matter as well. They love to eat the stuff. I can’t tell you how many times the last 20 years people have told me that they would love to buy something but their cats would eat it! I know this is true about the feline species! Not mine though! My cats arrived at my shop in a womb, a stray mother looking for a home. I had one inside cat (in her mid-teens at the time) and had always had DOGS! My whole life I grew up as a dog lover and nothing but. Cats! No way – I wanted nothing to do with them – and swore I’d never have them. Never say never!
Long story short – when these “kittens” were born they were welcomed into the world by a complete dog lover and so they were raised as though they were dogs. I know nothing of raising kittens. They are my dog-cats. They come when they are called and have “personalities” beyond measure. I’ve been told time and again I have the best cats. And I do! Best of all, they do not bother my arrangements, in fact, they are not the least bit interested in my stuff, they just want to be near me. Just like a dog wouldn’t you say?
