Today we are featuring a feline celeb if you will. He’s taken the internet and TV by storm, and soon will hit a book store near you. Pictured above is Boone, the Lilac-point Siamese cat of Subversive Cross Stitch and Kitty Wigs founder, Julie Jackson. He’s the supermodel for Julie’s new book, Glamourpuss: The Enchanting World of Kitty Wigs published by Chronicle Books and due out on book stores in October. You can follow Boone on Twitter and become a fan on Facebook.
Name of Pet: Boone Jackson
Pet Type: Lilac-point Siamese cat
Favorite activity: Sleeping/complaining. Or going for a walk on his leash.
Favorite food: Kitty treats, any kind.
What does your pet do when you are crafting? Anything to get my attention (which he doesn’t want once he has it).
Best thing about your pet: Blase attitude — he’ll wear a Kitty Wig and pose all day.
If your pet could talk, what do you think he/she would say? “HEY! WHAT ABOUT ME?”
Can you share a pet tip you’ve learned since having your pet? Siamese cats are for suckers (but we already knew that).
A can of cat food goes a long way toward making your pet more cooperative in a photo shoot.
