a hairy toy

one week of brushing yields piles of fluff

what to do? craft s’more that cat hair stuff!

nimble hands now roll now shape then form

that mound of hair? it’s now transformed!

now see, for words cannot express

wild cat exuberance! yes, Yes!  Y E S !

mr tubular too-two

commission work, ain’t an easy thing to do

especially when iterations make you blue

this here one, was not much fun

glad i was when it got done!

the tubes of hair—too large at first

wire too thick—it made me curse!

i calmed my mind, got back to work

with head at ease, i then rework

persistence finally got me through

i’m pleased—hopefully you are too!

pom-pom cat

mr gaia is my luscious muse

i create while he dost snooze

a new creation i shalt unveil

with pom-poms of a grander scale

this choker it is not old news

i know for me it does enthuse!

whorled steel and orbs of hair so fine

a statement piece—this new design

little cat feet

little cat feet, little cat feet

softly paddle down the street

slinking like fog with wispy paws

cool and silent; no clicking claws

then puff! he’s gone, he did not pause

but left his print—a white cat paw

Metro Cat

For weeks and weeks I fussed then cursed

My mind was trapped and at its worst

No creative thoughts were to be found

My mental state had run aground!

> * * <

I begged my kitty—help me please

I badly need your expertise!

With Thinking Turban on his nod

Designs soon flew—and none too soon!

> * * <

And now, let’s see him strut his stuff

With Metro Cat he sure looks tough!

City kitties metro statement in fur and steel.  One “tough” looking cat he is.

Choker necklace. Steel, cat hair and stainless steel jump rings.

a false start

Be bold! Be sharp! Is what I caught

From kitty Gaia’s train of thought

So off I went, to make with zeal

A necklace, of fur and steel

A work of art, that would appeal

To Gaia—and end this ordeal

But no, that would have been too smart

It didn’t work. Tomorrow? Another start.

Gaia: “I don’t think I like it.”

Gaia’s jewel

Awake! Awake! now time to make!

What shall it be? you soon shall see

His nod has sparked so now be awed

A cat hair jewel that won’t be flawed!

But first the hair must have a flair

It can’t be rolled he must be bold

And so we leave him to his task—

A creation, he’ll soon unmask!
