When I first drew sketches that became the basis for these cats it was a long legged big pawed white cat that I drew. So when I found some white velveteen I knew that I could at last make the cat that started it all.
It was actually a family pet that inspired me. He died when I was 16 but was such a personality he has stayed with me all this time. He was a green eyed white cat with big feet, aquiline nose and a tail that went on forever.
He was originally named by the people who reared him, they had a very dry humour, and the name I've used for this cat is a contraction of that name.
