We have another new baby! Rescued mom Betty had a beautiful little boy on Sunday at around 3PM. My stepdad had to assist with the birth, so the baby came out thinking humans are pretty swell. He is extremely friendly toward people!
He is named Arnie, after his late father Arnold.
This is pretty much what it’s like around here all the time; Jellybean is sitting there being good and Tiny Clyde is being an urchin–in this case, getting into my purse.
Thanks to Charles and Lisa for their generous gift! As a little thank you, I did a little watercolor of their dog, Sweet Potato, and their cat, Elvis.
Behold the mighty horns of Daisy!
(the babies are growing like weeds!)
Hello Everyone! It is Black Cat Appreciation Day. Jellybean is obviously not impressed with the ceramic black cat I found at Goodwill and have chosen for a repainting project(it was spray-painted gold).
If you love black cats, please share this post. Black cats are still to this day associated with bad luck and, sadly, are more likely to be put to sleep or wait a long time to be adopted from shelters. Many grow up in shelters because people simply pass them over because of their color. It is time to put the superstitions about black cats to rest. If you own a black cat, please post photos of them on social media today and help spread awareness about the Joy of Black Cats!
Here are ours!

Steve is putting up some extra shelves for me in my workshop. I want a little more space for my collections of natural objects as well as a place to put my favorite painting brushes that Tiny Clyde can’t reach. My brushes are special to me and I like to display them in neat jars and vases. Unfortunately, Tiny Clyde thinks brush bristles are delicious and he will eat them.
Above, you can see Steve measuring out where to put the screws in the shelves; Tiny Clyde has his eye on the little screwdriver on the floor. Jellybean supervises.
Tiny Clyde decides he can help more efficiently by holding the shelf down.
Jellybean makes sure the shelf goes on the wall in the correct place.
Then she goes to the opposite wall to work on her own little art project she’s had going for a while. 🙂
This is an old photo, but it’s pretty much what they are doing right now in this heat–cats melting everywhere.
