I love visiting my neighbour Velma. She has a house of interesting things, books and lots of loved animals.
Her cat Flurry likes to climb onto the wood cookstove to keep warm. And that stove was keeping the house (and the cat) warm.
Badger the cat was the subject of one of my china paintings a few weeks back.
Badger likes to play with Cyrus the dog. Cyrus is a Maremma Sheepdog from Italy. He's so good natured and sweet.
Speaking of dogs, don't forget to send in your ATC with a dog on it for the centrespread challenge of ATC Quarterly. Please e-mail me for more info at: firstname.lastname@example.org. Deadline: November 15.
