A Fine Feline...................

This beautiful cat figure was given to us by a local dear friend for Christmas! Isn't she just grand? She reminds me of our old Siamese cat that lived for 20 years........and we still miss her! This kitty keeps me company at the computer every day and loves the photos that come in showing other felines, of course!
I really wasn't drinking when I took this shot(!), but I wanted to show the beautiful finish on her.........it's copper/greenish and looks like the real thing of a bronze sculpture until you pick it up and realize it's not heavy.
It came from the Winterthur Museum's gift shop, so is probably a rendering of some of their many Egyptian felines. I love her! Thanks, K.W.!

I know I said it before... but I'm really diggin' this banner pic, makes me want to roll in the hay and sit under the rays of sun until I fall to sleep- the best naps are under the sun! Just don't forget the sunblock! ~Monica

When I first saw the photos I thought it was a real cat -- what fantastic work -- it is just gorgeous. And like Monica, love the banner pic. How peaceful.
