Flittens™ Books & Bisques

Discovered by Captain Katt on a voyage across the Pacific Ocean while searching for clean drinking water on an unchartered island. The Captain found the leaf litter under certain hardwood trees which contained many of the small-winged creatures. They proved to be an easy capture and he brought a number of them back to the Manor.

Habitat: A singularly lazy species, each of these little creatures lives its entire life in roughly four foot square territory underneath the tree it was born.

Habits: The Terrestrial Tabby is a lazy and remarkably sedentary creature. If it were not for their natural camouflage coloring, which allows them to blend into their surroundings, they would be very vunerable to predators. They are so stationary, in fact, they are often mistaken for tree roots.

Food: All nutritional needs are met by the oak tree. They dine on fresh fallen leaves and acorns. The tabbys feed heavily in the warm months to make up for the lesser nutritional value of the dried leaves they feed on in the winter, during which they go into a state of semi-hibernation.

Likes: Laying around, naps.

Dislikes: Moving, meddlesome mice.

Laura Von Stetina
Laura's yard is filled with the flowers and plants she grows as subjects for her botanical and wildlife paintings. Her house is populated with the stray animals she has always welcomed. One notable was a stray cat that bestowed the family with kittens. Laura was so taken with their special skills that she observed them keenly, often sketching them in detail. While checking on them early one morning, she was amazed to discover they had sprouted wings! Thus was the inspiration for her series of "Flittens" which are imaginately enchanting as well as botanically and anatomically correct.
Laura's impressive credentials include a solo exhibit at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History, participation in exhibits at the Cleveland Museum of Art, numerous awards from the Cleveland Society of Nature Artists among many others. Laura's love of nature has also included teaching and natural history museum work.
