The Cat on my Drawing Table
Anyone with a child of a certain age (20 years, give or take) will recognize the glassy-eyed stare of Zip, the beanie baby cat. My daughter was given 2 beanie babies for her 3rd or 4th birthday, my first encounter with them. She promptly named them blackkitty and brownkitty, but blackkitty was clearly the favorite, and remained so for many years. She ended up with several although I can’t remember the names she gave the other ones. The one pictured above guards my drawing table.
I made her a blackkitty sweater, back when I had a ribber for my knitting machine.
And sending out good vibes to the real black kitty in our lives, our neighbor’s cat Geri, who’s under the weather these days. Hope to see you on the deck soon.
