Pottery Models

I usually take the week following the Studio Tour off from pottery. This is also the kids first week of summer break. I had planned on taking them to the Aquarium in Gatlinburg, swimming in the river and the like. And then, we saw a friend's Facebook post about two stray kittens...

We did not end up adopting the kittens she found. They were still in quarantine at Mitchell County Animal Rescue, so we decided to visit the Yancey County Animal Shelter, where Allison wants to volunteer this summer anyway. We had our pick of 4 kittens who had just returned from being spayed and neutered. Allison named her short-haired calico "Deziree" and Ben kept the shelter's name "Flash" for his long-haired tabby. It's been 17 years since I've had a kitten around. They're a lot like fast-moving toddlers.

Except I wouldn't let a toddler near my pottery.


  1. Aw, so cute, they are a bundle of fun.

  2. kittens are such fun and they look great in those playful pots!'A basketful of kittens!

  3. You will need a "kitty cam" for keeping an eye on them week after next! Could they be any cuter?
