Sheep in the Valley
I did this almost entirely from imagination. The sheep I must confess I looked at a birthday card that came to me this week. This was begun as an experiment because I made up the composition of it as I went along. It is probably based on somewhere in Wales, because of the mountains and sheep. It turned out better than I expected and I did it entirely by brush and water colors. It is approx 5 X 5 inches -- a little larger than I usually do.
Bailey has a pet door from the inside of the house into the garage to get to his kitti-litter. It is usually available to him at all times. But once in a while if we have to have the big garage door open, we have a door that slides in to cover his hole. Today we had to let a delivery man into our garage, so we put the cat door in its slot "just for a minute", because Bailey is an indoor cat. (We have coyotes looking for an easy meal not far away). That was at 2:15 p.m. It was 8:15 this evening that we remembered!!! Oh no!!! Panic. He must have gone somewhere in all that time! Because Bailey is a very polite cat and rarely demands anything, we were definitely worried. He could have just as quietly gone away and thought, "Oh, they don't want me in there any more," and performed elsewhere of his choosing. However, we have scoured and sniffed every nook and cranny in the house -- almost -- and found nothing. So we are keeping our fingers crossed that Bailey kept his paws crossed! The really scary thought is that this might be all it takes to make this cat change his kitti-litter habits. He is so unpredictable as to what he wants to do, where and when. Never had a cat quite like this one before.
