studio companion

Nadia, my calico tabby cat, looking up at my studio inspiration board.

Nadia is a calico tabby cat who enjoys forehead kisses, sunbathing, the chase o the hunt, ice-cold water, and closing doors that stand ajar.

She croons more than she meows and has the sweetest purr-song rumbles. She can be found sitting atop my scanner, on the window sill of my my studio nook, or lying outstretched on the floor by my chair. She answers to Nadia, Mimo, Mimo-Rimo, Mauw, Rauw-Mauw, and several other variations.

She follows me from room to room, but saves most of her kisses for Jason. She is my studio companion, sweet-dreams feet snuggler, and silly entertainer. She smells like a woodland memory, and I love her so.
