At the insistence of my wife and possibly to preserve what tiny amount of sanity I still have, Mindy found me a new studio assistant. His name is Gosu-mezzer-Khan, Khan for short and like most assistants, he will have to be taught the fundamentals which I can only assume will be challenging. Khan is an old style Siamese seal point and I am not 100% he was born, rather created in an evil genius' laboratory as he is equal parts jet engine, cuddly toy, industrial coiled spring and military grade explosives. Like his predecessor, I doubt he will be much help mixing glazes, packing orders or unloading trucks, but his presence and companionship will be welcome none the less.
A very thoughtful internet friend sent the following Kinky Friedman quote from an obituary of his cat in relationship to our loss of Jun, I think it applies to cats, living or remembered; "Dogs have a depth of loyalty that often we seem unworthy of. But the love of a cat is a blessing, a privilege in this world."


  1. what a sweet guy and proud of himself, sorry about the loss of Jun. Does he talk like some Siamese cats do?

    1. Yes, he is very chatty, especially when I am not paying attention to him or he wants some food. It is a most welcome conversation though.
