Okay, for those who don't know me, I am a Cat Lady. I love me some cats and have had so many it's hard to remember them all. Of course, every so often there comes along a "special" cat. Barney, Oreo, Bruiser(Tripod), K.C., Charlie, Max, Vincent, and so many more. Now I have Miya (Princess Miya Chula Yum-Yum) and she is unique. She will be two years old in November.Oh yeah - she definitely thinks she is a princess. I got her through Little D who adopted her brother, Hiro (Hirohita Tadashi). I wanted an Asian name for her and looked on-line for famous female Japanese artists. I found three, one musician, one potter and one sculpturer in steel and they all had the name Miya (Mee-yah). Little D wanted me to name her Princess Pei Pei so I used the Princess and Bentley did a lot of research about Siamese cats and from that research he and Page put together the Chula Yum-Yum. I used to collect unique pottery and bought one piece that was so pretty and a one of a kind design and color. Charlie decided it had to go since it was blocking her way across the top of the chest to jump up into the top of my closet so I came from work one day and there it was in many little colorful pieces. After Charlie died, our circumstances had changed so we didn't get another cat for quite awhile before I had to have Miya. Of course, Little D's Max was everyone's favorite and we lost him recently as mentioned previously.I used to have lots of art and doo-dads that had to do with cats. One was a unique little pair that Page2 love to play with when she came. So I had a deja vu moment today - I found the male cat on the floor - victim to Miya wanting to get to the top of the chest so she evidently knocked it off the window sill. At least it was something I bought in an antique shop and wasn't anywhere near as expensive as my unique pottery.
