This is my diva-esque cat, Winnie. She's soaking up a bit of sun in a chair by the dining room window, looking every bit the still life subject.
My fledgling shop, fiona and twig, is named after two other cats, both female, both calicos, both long since gone.My friends have asked me "Why the name fiona and twig? Will you be selling items FOR cats? Cat knick knacks for grannies with fanny packs?"
No to both, she answered ruefully.
I have just always found myself fascinated by the fierce, independent spirit so nobly embodied by felines. My husband, a dog person to the core, is perplexed by the feline nature, never having lived with a cat prior to marrying me two years ago.
And he thought he was only getting ONE opinionated female when he swore filial loyalty to me.
