A Facebook fan once called us "A Heaven on Earth for cats", and a visitor remarked "this is the true meaning of a Peaceable Kingdom!" As the pictures indicate, cats are "at PEACE" here ~ whether waiting for dinner, curled in a private basket, resting outside or inside on a couch with friends or nestled with art materials, each makes their own choices. We rise when the sun does, and bed down soon after dark. Perhaps the secret to the harmony is that we accept cats AS THEY ARE. We make no efforts to change their preferences or behaviors, but give equal time and care to the disabled, the feisty, the elusive and the semi-feral, the shy as well as the outspoken. It has been suggested that the cats who share our home somehow KNOW this is their "last chance," and they adapt. As visual artists, we are often inspired by their presence, beauty and independence, as are our students who come to the studio. "About Us" shows our Outreach Programs that combine resident cats and art experiences off-site.
