Caterlude! 10 photos of little!Sansa =(^.^)=

I have spent the last week, all day every day, trying to learn how to get a mailing list to work with my website, and…


This is enough, for now. I won’t have a mailing list just yet.. I thought that it would be nice to be able to let people know through email when my blog had been updated, and when I was doing something really cool, like if there were any developments in my career, or my manga goes on sale. I’ll put it aside for the moment, and concentrate on the art side of things. (I’m just not sure how to get the word out. Any suggestions?)

Well, I can’t move to Hawaii until I have at least $5,000 saved up, so I either need to get comics and the Tenipuri story out asap (I’m just so picky about quality!), or I need to get a job locally to help out in the meantime. Hmm.. there aren’t any jobs here, though. So.. art it is?

Speaking of which? I’ll be taking down the Sailor Moon and HxH badges in my button Etsy shop tomorrow night (Friday night.. so I guess technically tonight!), so this is your last chance to get some! I’ll be putting out other designs at some point, and I’ll let you know when! It has certainly been interesting, listening to the feedback and getting used to the Etsy shipping system. 😀

So, that is what’s on my mind right now! I write in twitter a lot, so if you’re on twitter too, give me a follow and a shout out! I’m sort of thinking of running some sort of promotion contest there at some time. Maybe for a free e-book version of my Tenipuri assistant book when it’s done?

PS: I’m also on tumblr, instagram, youTube, DeviantArt, and facebook, too! And now for what you actually came here for– cute pictures of baby Sansa!

These pictures I took in August 2012, right after I inherited Sansa from another girl who was leaving Japan (her name was Jamie, too!). Sansa was around 4 or 5 months old when she came to live with me, and at first it was weird because I’d lived alone for so long, but we really bonded, and Sansa loves me sooooo much now! I, too, don’t know what I’d do without her. Sansa really brightens my days!


Isn’t she adorable? Her old name was Yuki, which is Japanese for “snow,” and it did fit her because she was mostly white. She’s not anymore! Her fur has really darkened over time. I like both versions.. but then again, it’s Sansa! My baby~~♥


Isn’t that just cuteness overload?!?!!!


This sums her up pretty well. She’s a little queen. She’s funny, adorable, and surprises you all of the time. She’s quite cheeky! That’s why I gave her a queen’s name. 😉


Here is my friend Ale (she is an actor in Japan! Check out her Facebook page, too! Especially if you speak Italian, though she speaks English fluently) playing with her. She really, really loves cats and missed her own, so when Sansa came, she had to come and meet her! Ale is also the friend who stayed at my apartment when I was in London, to take care of Sansa. ♥


Sansa resting on my lap. I was in workout clothes, so obviously she didn’t want me to get in shape. XD She doesn’t like me to get out of bed either, as she sleeps right in the crook of my neck!


Aww! Look at that face!!! Tell me that you don’t absolutely ADORE her?!


All curled up!


As a side note, I really, really miss this rug. I will have to get a new one like it when I get to Hawaii. It wasn’t very good quality, but it was just so darn cute, and Sansa looked so cute on it!

Well, it’s 1 am now, so I will retire to bed. I have another post for the Assistant story about half done, so I will post it tomorrow sometime! Maybe I can finish it over breakfast. ^^

I do feel better now. Cat therapy ftw!

See you tomorrow!

    I don’t check email regularly, so I like that you post links on Facebook and Twitter when you update your blog.

    You are such a great photographer! It helps that Sansa is so cute, but I think you could take a great picture of just about anything. 🙂

      Since that is the only way that I’m going to be able to keep people informed right now, I’m glad! 😀 The thing that I don’t likeabout Facebook is that status updates are really tricky. THey don’t always show up on everyone’s timeline. ;_; It is interesting that I can see how many people actually “saw” it (which of course includes people who just scrolled by… probably most XD).

      Aww, thanks, Val! It’s really about the lens, I think. I was using a nice portrait lens that I have for those shots. The normal lens that came with the camera is pretty much garbage. XD;;
