I bought this as a light box to photograph small items for the e-commerce site I'l planning on starting
thing about this time of summer.
As you may be aware my cat Xenia is not only Her Imperial Majesty of All She Surveys, but also a "talented" artist. Looking forward to her first one-cat show, she used an online artist statement creator to come up with her exhibit statement. Later she cleaned it up a bit and personalized it:
This sweet little cat is the petite dynamo Smidgen. Smidgen was the immediate successor to the Clancy ( AKA The Grey Menace) and the predecessor to Xenia ( Empress of all she surveys). Yes, you can see where this is headed. To look so sweet and be so imperious - it took talent.
The Gray Menace's nemesis slunk away into the woods, once again inadequate.
The Grey Menace remained a proud, loud, and strutting tomcat well into his ninth year. With the dark grey rings in his fur, he was the Ring-Tail Tom of the old folksong.
Xenia, Empress of all she surveys, has joined me as I prepare my blog posts in the morning. At first, I assumed she was waiting for me to head to the kitchen and give her a treat.
and, "messing with his toys is bad juju." Zack continued to pull the stuffed seal toy out of the Grey Menace's paws.
Estates have grounds; the rest of us have yards, lots, gardens, woods, and such. It's been since grad school that I had someone mention caring for the grounds.
The owner wanted to dump the property in the worst possible way. It would have been too kind to describe it as a fixer-upper.
