Flittens™ Books & Bisques

Discovered by Captain Katt right under his very nose in rose bushes flowering amid the hedges around the manor house.

Habitat: Tea Rose Tabbies are drawn to the sweet smell of the rose blossom. They are sometimes found in bouquets of roses, mixed with the buds in bridal bouquets and have even found themselves tossed into the aisles of churches after dozing off in baskets of rose petals.

Habits: They are sweet “rosie” tempered and affectionate little animals. They are rare and gladly welcomed into any home lucky enough to receive one in a floral delivery.

Likes: Roses, rose petal sachet, Attar of Roses perfume, playing ring around the rosie, rose-colored glasses and sentimental songs.

Dislikes: Artificial flowers.

Migration: As no record was made of these cats in their natural habitat among the hedgerows, their natural migration pattern, if any, is not known. While residing at Mewingham Manor they settled into a seasonal pattern of living in the rose bushes in the formal gardens during the summer, then “migrating” into the hot house along with the potted roses when the cold weather threatened.

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.
