is one of my studio cats. I got her from the humane society to keep
Kuvo company. Kuvo came from a tree in a friend's yard as a tiny

"Sammy", as we call her, enjoyed posing for this sculpture
and seemed to know exactly what I was doing. She just sat in this

without any coaxing on my part. She's an elegant and loving cat
as well as an excellent hunter, and definitely the dominant feline
in the studio. When I originally sculpted the 3" version, I
donated a portion of the edition to raise funds for the annual "Sculpture
in the Park" show in Loveland, CO."
