Since I own the world’s largest agility cat, I’m always interested in cat agility training, and I know that the most successful trainers start the cats young. I didn’t realize how young until I saw this cute-alicious video of a 5-1/2 week old Tonkinese kitten being trained on a miniature agility course. It got me in the mood for adopting a kitten all over again. Enjoy!

Watercolor is a tough medium to master. It’s unforgiving; you can’t just paint over mistakes. When you apply the water it will not always go precisely where you like. For me, whose favorite medium is India ink scratched onto paper with a crow quill pen, watercolor seemed like a wild horse running away with me. Which […]
