Hello All, especially any CPS art teachers out there......
As for naming your cat, how about "Vincentina", "Georgia" or "Sally" or
"Dali" (In honor of Vincent Van Gogh, Georgia O'keefe or Salvador Dali). Of
course there's always "puss", "miss kitty" or "tinkerbell". Good luck and
enjoy. I had an orange tiger once, I named her "ambern".
