Not having a cat in my life means I’m excited whenever I meet one in the area. There are a couple who are friendly and like strokes and another I stay well away from as he’s a complete bruiser and shouts at me if I talk cat to him (I have my own language). I had a cat sister called Amy growing up, I housesat cats, I photographed cats, I played with cats, I carried cats around like babies, I built cardboard box forts for cats, I watched cats experience catnip, I would love to come back as a cat. One day, a cat will own me….but not just yet.
In the meantime, this love of the feline form has lead me to a new creative passion in life - conjuring Cosmic Cats.
We all know cats exist on magical plains as well as our own. Those half closed lids, that slow, relaxed purr, the ability to fall asleep at any given moment, being present yet also not at all - what do they see, where do they go, who do they meet?
I’m going to find out…
