Last month, I attended a NaMopaiMo prepping party at Charlotte Pijnenburg's home in Middelbeers, the Netherlands.

I love model cats almost as much as I love model horses, so started asking questions. I learned they were Limpuu resins sculpted by Lea Magga and sold by Aleksander Freda.
"Okay," I thought. "I need to remember that for later."
Except it turned out, I didn't have to. I received my own little Limpuu the next day while I was visiting Anna Dobrowolska-Oczko's studio in Utrecht.
Limpuu was a nice clean cast, requiring very little prep, so I decided she would be a perfect warm-up project for NaMoPaiMo. Since I don't have a real kitty of my own, I turned to Facebook for color help.Dozens of people submitted cat photos. It was hard to choose, but in the end I went with Heather Jackson-Lain's sweet girl, Maeve.
Here's my finished Limpuu. Her new name is Margot.
And here she is on Maeve again.
I'm so happy to have a cat for my horses to wear. Thank you again, Anna!
