Shipping deadlines are coming. Gift original in time for the holidays.

Over the last few years, I’ve been volunteering at the SPCA, helping shy cats become bolder and trying to get bitey cats to be less bitey! There are so many wonderful cats in need of homes.

One day I accidentally brought home our first Flame Point Siamese kitten Sidney from the SPCA. (I didn’t know what “Flamepoint Mix” meant.) He was a little blue eyed indignant kitten in a cage, who literally reached out to me & started complaining. Of course it was love at first sight! I quickly realized Sidney not only had an amazing personality, but was a living piece of art. I knew nothing about Siamese cats. They are born white. Because of their genetics, their color points are influenced by temperature and deepen as they grow older. Sidney was like a watercolor in progress. Sadly, we discovered that he had FIP, a fatal disease for cats and he died 6 months later. I still miss him, but he left behind many gifts: fond memories, a fascination with a new breed of cat, and my blossoming interest in photography.
