Spike goes with Le Chapeau...

(new pottery by Gary Rith)
OK, you saw Penny in her little holiday winter outfit yesterday, it got me thinking.....but dressing a cat is, well, a challenge, NO?

In pottery cat news, I have tried so hard to sculpt cats for years with little success. I draw them very well, but sculpting was hard...until this week. The wife wants a creamer with a cat on the handle---her grandmother had one that broke, except for the cat, and Claudia wants a cat on the handle mug....I'm working on it guys.....

That is a fine cat....keep it up!
Spike looks completely thrilled about the chapeau. I'm trying to put antlers on my three!

i thought cats liked hats... Dr. Suess's cat does!

i think you kitty on the creamer is just purrfect.

LOL at Spike! oooh, if looks could kill....
As Cleopatra would say (if I were to try that trick with her), "We are not amused." Because cats use the "royal WE" as I'm sure you already knew. :)

Spike is PISSED! He prefers you keep that sort of tom foolery to Penny.

I love that your beloved pets are such an inspiration for you!

To quote, well, you....HOLY CATS! You made a cat sculpture!!!! See, your lovely wife and I have such confidence in you. You are a brave, brave man to put a hat on a cat that big. :)
