Rennie is the studio cat. He lives in the art studio, which is pretty much the first floor of the house, except for a small waiting room for Betsy’s students. We often refer to the art studio as Rennie’s World. He has numerous play areas and perches, including a cat tree I made for him, which leads to a cat walk up near the ceiling that runs the length of the wall and ends at a two-story dollhouse converted to a cat house. Although he is a normally very mild-mannered fellow – his nickname is “buddha boy” – he found one day that he could no longer tolerate the antics of one of our other six cats. Her name is Ellie. I put a screen door between the studio and the rest of the house and he seems quite content to call the studio his home. I’m certain Ellie is relieved.
