I have a friend who is a cat lady.
No! not the kind you are thinking of!!!
She is not crazy, or old, or disheveled.
She is just interested in helping animals and has a great caring heart.
I was tasked with making a entry table for her home. An entry table is the one in the foyer where the keys and purse land as you walk into the house.
She let me decide on the design and, of course, I thought it needed some connection to cats!
My idea came out as a collection of cats with their tails up in the air holding up the tabletop. But a little experimentation showed I would be a need some sort of legs to aid in holding the tabletop.
I drew the cats on the computer and had them water jetted by Nash at Accurate Fab. in Wilmington. Those guys did a great job. The seven cats were all perfectly hunched down. I welded their tails on to finish the look.
But look closely and you will see something different… right in the middle of the cats is a small mouse hiding in plaine sight.
It was a fun project and turned out great.
I would love to hear your comments or observations.
