In my studies of cats recently I’ve learned that cats are often employed on winery and beer brewery premises – especially here in the Pacific Northwest. There are also several local bookstores and music instrument shops that have cat “staff” members too. So in support of working cats today here are two portraits I’ve just finished that are drying on my table (a Siamese and a Tabby).
I think I’ll call the piano player “Scarlatti” after Domenico Scarlatti, the Italian composer of “The Cat’s Fugue” (google it!). I’ll call my better-mousetrap-builder “Handy”.
