hair there, don’t despair !

hair, here, there—everywhere,

on the couch, chair and stair,

lots of hair, so much to spare—

>’ ‘<

kitties, kitties with short hair,

none on couch, stair or stair,

it’s not fair but don’t despair—

>’ ‘<

mounds of hair, this cat can share,

must roll it up then ship with care,

5 balls of love for cats with none—

hey new york kitties—go have some fun!

nimble hands now roll now shape then form

that mound of hair? it’s now transformed!

cat eyeing the hairy toy

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!

a little advertising won’t hurt

but will it dish out the pay dirt?

because, i’m one terrifying trend

that might portend or offend

and on cracked.com you’ll find the buzz

that cat hair stuff is anything but fuzz

yes, they can humor me all the same

but just you wait

cat hair jewelry will put them to shame!

white valentine

Blue heart. Red heart. Purple heart.

My heart is WHITE and soft as snow

And he’s my love for all to know

But trapped in steel will he still glow?

Oh heart! I can not let you go.

I have a love affair with felines. This relationship, which some might call an obsession, has always been a part of me. Even when I was a baby, my little hand grabbed out, reaching for that passing feline. Why is it we love what we love anyway? I think this thing for cats is just part of my DNA!

Most cat lovers wear their cat’s hair inadvertently on their clothing. I prefer to wear mine in the form of jewelry. In honor of my love for him I made this necklace. His beautiful soft white hair is felted in the shape of a heart, then trapped between 2 pieces of wire mesh. A caged heart. We do this with those we love at times, holding tightly, not wanting them to leave.

For those who love their cats as much as I do: a made-to-order necklace, on etsy, the purrfect way to wear the hair from your precious cat. An ode to cat lovers:

Black heart. Grey heart. Orange heart.

Your heart’s COLOR may be as dark as coal

But he’s still your love for all to know

And trapped in steel I’ll have him glow

A lovely heart! And with you he will go.
