Ever since Avedon (kitty) came into our lives I now have to retouch with a cat sitting on my shoulders. Quite an art and kind of painfull in summer if he loses balance and tries to hang on mid-fall..

I kind of got to wondering what this cat on the shoulder thing was? So as one does I punched the words into  Google and found I am not the only one with a cat on my shoulder. Seems that’s where cats are the happiest!  See above

So if you are looking for some portrait inspiration grab your furry friend and turn him into a furry scarf! Or let him do a balancing act.

He’ll keep you warm at least!

  2. Heh! Fellow cat lovers such as I are nodding as you describe your utter willingness to put your discomfort on hold for the sake of your kitty’s contentment. I’m so glad you have Avedon in your life, Carla. Enjoy your snuggles.
