jonnie lends a paw
i work hard on an overnight commission for the Hemp Gallery. Jonniecat decides to lend a paw. whenever a piece of cloth is laid on a clean piece of floor so i can gaze at the pattern or take a photograph very few seconds elapse before Jonnie is in the picture. he is a bequest cat from the RSPCA. this is a brilliant notion whereby people nervous about their pet's future can make provision for them in their will to have the pet rehomed and cared for in the event of an untimely meeting with Mr Reaper. sometimes the living also find it challenging to cope and Jonnie came to us because his human pet had trouble coping with his bouncy ways (Jonnie is a bit like Tigger) and made a substantial donation to the RSPCA to ensure the ongoing welfare of the marmalade tiger. in his past life Jonnie lived in a small gardenless unit in the suburbs. it is difficult to imagine him there now. he loves the farm garden and has made many nests under rose and lavender bushes. he also loves his little friend Martha the catfishweaselbear. they roll and tumble together rather a lot. fortunately for the Hemp Gallery, Martha misses this particular opportunity.
