Today I introduce you to Ben, the rather disgruntled looking white tom cat in the header. I commemorated Ben some years back by designing his own line of fabric, which sold in stores throughout the USA.
Despite his appearance, the result of a birth defect, he couldn’t have been sweeter, more bizarre or funnier. Ben is in the background behind his buddy Simon.
The Prof and I adored him. He had a meow that could last for an entire minute! We claimed he was from another planet – Planet of the Cats, to be precise. Ben has since returned to his home planet but was originally rescued off the mean streets of Los Angeles.
Having been in the trenches of animal rescue, my respect runs deep for organizations working non-stop for those without a voice. One such organization is:
Mission, Vision and Values
Mission: Stray Cat Alliance educates and empowers the community to advocate for every cat’s right to be safe, healthy and valued. We are building a no kill nation, one stray at a time.
Vision: Stray Cat Alliance envisions a time when all cats are cared for, all kittens and domesticated cats are in loving homes and there is a healthy, but declining sterilized feral cat population. The feral cat colonies that do remain are monitored, fed, and treated medically when needed by their caregivers.
Sherlock will be participating in a silent auction to raise money for cat rescue. I am thrilled beyond words to be a part of this.
The auction begins online October 6th. And then he’s off to a fancy party for the live part of the auction held at a lovely estate in Brentwood on October 18th!
The Chairman is here with me saying:

Get ready to laugh:
What do cats eat for breakfast?
Kreatrix just rolled her eyes.
And now she left the room. Gotta go-
