Kama no Neko



A clowder of cats moved into the kiln during the fall/winter of 2005. Quite literally. I had left the sutema open from the 5th firing and they decided it made good living quarters. I've since built them some high up cat houses and ramps but I've left a little opening for them to get into the kiln. They love it in there so much, I can't refuse them. Besides, the kiln god was first to care for them, I'm sure they all want to visit with each other from time to time.
