This is our new fur baby Miss Squeak. She is 6 weeks old and part Ragdoll. Mom was a purebred but got out while in heat. Only time will tell if Miss Squeak will have any of the Ragdoll traits. She is laughing in one of the photos but she hasn't met Annie or Mr. Purrcy yet. Squeak was born into a family with little children and a hyper dog so she is use to a lot of activity. It was important to me for Annie to grow up with her very own cat. Annie doesn't have a strong small prey drive, which is a good thing. Mr. Purrcy made sure Annie knew cats rule the house.
Flat Fish Paper Arts was born many years ago when blogging first started. My family did a lot of camping and diving along the California coast. California halibut are huge fish that start out as any normal fish. As they age, one eye will start to move to the other side and the halibut will become flat so it can lay on the bottom of the ocean with both eyes facing up.
I always like the idea that we all start out the same but life experiences slowly changes us. In my case, my creative talents went the way of paper arts. Flatfish are always looking up when they mature and as with any artist, we see inspiration in everything around us - always looking up.

Years ago a local dive shop had a photo of a diver who caught a halibut so big he had to throw it over his jeep to take the picture. Our little spoof with our daughter sitting in her toy jeep with dad's halibut on the hood. 1987
