el story-o to begin the year right

me gato in Meh-he-co, what a delight!

doing his best to get me more biz!

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!

His turban’s off and now he sleeps

With mind awake not counting sheep

He’s thinking, thinking what to make

So please be still so he won’t wake.

Oh Gaia, Gaia let me know

If there’s some way that you can show

What were you thinking, help me here

Just whisper gently in my ear.

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.

I want to hold your paw

I LOVE cat paws!

And I love cat paw prints. I have some of those traveling up my leg. You can see those in a previous post: “Like a Cat Scratch on Sunburn”.

Here we have the quintessential essence of cat in the form of a personal adornment. And worn by no other than big boy Gaia.
