One of our two cats died last weekend and I still have a ‘Mayberry-shaped hole’. Unfortunately, I never took many photos of her (she never sat still long enough) and those I took aren’t very good. I decided not to make the same mistake with our other cat.

He’s the sweetest little thing, a little dopey, very cuddly and not a mean bone in his body. He’s a very special cat indeed.

I am a very creative person and it’s my way of dealing with the world, inside and out. I am only happy when I am making things or painting or writing. There are just not enough hours in the day…. I am into poetry and photo manipulation at the moment and also dabbling in photography. :-)
