the incredible journey of Mr.FoxCat

studio window sill


 mr. Foxcat's incredible journey; it started life as a simple juxtaposition of newly acquired bits of fabric, the only fixed shape was fox's head and torso......he travelled to France and spotted a lama, was mistaken for a cat, he mixed and mingled with complete strangers, stayed up all night and watched the stars fade into grey, then blue skies; he marvelled at the outspoken behaviour of some of those he met and overcame his fear of being laughed at, he joined in the merriment and came closer and closer to the truth inside; he discovered within a hidden desire to dressing up, all things bright and sparkly caught his attention, he let the demon loose, who turned out to be his best friend and lo and behold, he was transformed. He finally had the courage to become what he in his heart knew he had always been: a Mr. FoxCat, not like any other fox or cat, he is unique 
the sheer delight of showing his true nature to the world has made him happy once more and restored his balance. There is nothing to be ashamed of anymore. There never was.
He sees the rainbow in the skies once again, the world is no longer black and white, he walks the streets with his head held high and looks each and every stranger straight in the eye, his step is light and he almost bursts with the desire to sing all day, he is happy, he is gay

Julie: yes to your second question and o la la vive la France, I guess!!
Helen: he is a brave chap and not only that he gives me excellent fashion advice - I have no dress sense whatsoever (and wouldn't it be just absolutely wonderful if we could all just be who and what we are without having to be brave about it)((not if you're a serial killer of course, then please do not come out of any closet))

"the sheer delight of showing his true nature to the world has made him happy" - as it would us all, right? He is adorable and pert and so, so wonderful. I like the yellow thread beads and the stitched circles - they seem a part of his happiness.
