Good Morning Sunshine! Sammie jeeps!

Sammie Jeeps. Sammie was a “tortie” kitten. When we first got her she was about 8 weeks old, someone had dropped her off across the street. My young student/friend Gina Labrecque was able to catch her. I took her to the vets, and he said to me, “You have a Tortie on your hands!” I had no idea what that meant! I would learn. He then said, “She will have “tortitude!” He was very approving of her; Sammie was very pretty. It turned out she did fit the description of being fiercely independent. a very girly cat, and coky, very devoted to whoever was where she was. Tom or me. I was a kangaroo until she got too big, she would climb in my bra and stayed. Had to be in the middle of what I was doing, or on my lap when I worked if she could be.

Because of her “tortitude” I began to play games with her. Her favorite game was RAAaaaaarrrr! I would get her someplace and then run and hide. When I saw her coming I would jump out and___yes growl out a big RAAaaaarrrr! She loved it! Then being the smart kitty she was she began to play the RAAaaaarrr game on her own! At first, she hid where I did, then she got creative finding her own spots. And she sneaked very well into those spots. Like behind the shower curtain, and therefore she would jump the hell out of you. Even jumping at you like I had her!

Well, there came a point where she moved to my daughter’s home. Where after being there for some time Sam decided to lay in wait for my son-in-law Dave___she was going to play RRRAAAaaaaahhhh! with him, someone who had no clue of the game. Well, she flew at him out of the blue at the top of the stairs, and down he went! Luckily he was not badly hurt. Dave is a very tall feller and she aimed at his midsection. She did other surprising things to other people. I do feel cats have imaginations and a sense of humor. Sammie boxed on her hind legs. She adored Thomas. It was Tom that gave her. her last name Jeeps. This was because she was very much like Jeep of Pop-eye Fame. Remember Jeeps Pop-eyes cat?

I live in Southern Maine. I am the owner of Anisette Studios. My website is Here you can view and purchase Shibui, sign up for my newsletters, blog, and read articles about Shibui Found Image Art. Patrons get great deals several times a year and special items at times. My site makes it easy to contact me. My primary art form is Shibui Found Image Art. Shibui begins with action art and stems from the imagination. It is like seeing something in the clouds or solving a puzzle. Its creative process has its own rules and requires what I call reverse engineering due to a lack of an understructure and purely out of the imagination. In addition to those who patron me, my target groups are those who use art therapy. I will soon be teaching live. Contact me if you would like to learn live. I use Zoom. I request that although my art, other images, and what I write is now published by me here on WordPress; I do ask you do not to use my artwork, poetry, or the information about Shibui Found Image Art without my permission. I am quite available to make such requests. I wish to share the following: The existentialist philosopher Simone de Beauvoir wrote a book called The Ethics of Ambiguity. In it, she lays out a guiding ethic in response to the philosophy of existentialism. It might be somewhat familiar to you already. She writes, “To will oneself free is also to will others free. This will is not an abstract formula. It points out to each person concrete action to be achieved.” Best wishes to all! Have good times and keep safe! Pejj
