Itty Bitty thoughts



I told her I wouldn't share her thoughts right now, but they are all in her teeny head. They are real thoughts, just like yours or mine. I must let her be an itty bitty for awhile and not tarnish her with characterization. She deserves that time.

Etta is a real cutie!

Lilli said...

Hard not to love Itty Bitty Etta; and you are of course more than right: her thoughts are real!
I don't know if you saw that I wrote that I too lived in Oslo in the late 80's (at Majorstua). It was a fun thought that we may have passed each other somewhere, sometime. Give Etta a gentle squeeze.

Sharon said...

well i can't help but say how beautiful she is! what a looker....and apparently, a thinker...

Apifera Farm said...

Helen, she has this odd little expression I love. Lilli- Oslo, I have fond memories of Norway, so beautiful- we might have passed on the street! Sharon- she is a doll.

Juli said...

Is it just me or does she look like a person decorated as a cat?? So glad Etta lucked into your life. She's adorable.

maccandace said...

She definitely seems to have a serious side.

Cathy said...

She's so pretty! I love the coloring on her face, the blazing intelligence in her itty bitty eyes, and the look of determination. Etta will be a cat to be reckoned with.

She is a lucky girl to have found you! I teach high school art and use your book as an inspiration to my students. Congratulations on the book and for saving Etta!

edifice rex said...

Hey Juli, I had the same thought! what a face! lol!

Apifera Farm said...

nothing like a kitten to get people writing....this morning I heard Martyn get up and bathing her! Then he brought to me in bed, this is unheard of for him...sigh. Mcrgan- so cool you're using my book!

Amber said...

Etta is blessed. I love her little chin. Hope she likes animals! She's going to have lots of friends on the farm.

Sharon said...

i just ran across this again, and i can't help thinking....this is a painting waiting to happen....you must paint her...see what happens when you write a book and people read it? everyone thinks they know stuff now....!

Apifera Farm said...

Amber, I think becasue she only had us, and no litter mates, that the dogs and cats became her clan and safety right away. Sharon, you are funny. I still haven't painted proper things of everyone on the farm, and it kills me.

Thank you for reading! The farm and my art/writing keep me hopping, so might not respond immediately. Thank you for understanding. ~Katherine & Apifera ~
