I'd like to introduce you to my little pal, Sophie. Once a skinny and fearful little rescue cat from California; she has been the healthy and happy heart beat at my feet for the past seven years and it's safe to say we are pretty well inseparable. I am certainly not what some would term 'A crazy cat lady'; (geez, I hate that label), but somehow calico cats have been a big feature of my life since my first one adopted me during my years living in England. Benny flew back to Canada with me in 2005 and she lived to the ripe old age of 19 and 3 months. Calicos are a particular kind of cat. They like to rule the castle and have their humans to themselves. Now this particular calico, as you can see, likes to have her canine chums around to visit. Seeing them all together makes my heart sing. The dogs will get their own blog at a later date! Suffice to say that I could not imagine my life without animals and certainly not without the gentle little Spirit who I call Sophie. I hope you get to meet this calico charmer if you make a visit to my studio. Did you know that calico cats are almost always female? Sophie happens to have the unusual feature of being a ridgeback cat as well. She is the brightest, most colourful gem in the jewellery box!
