Christeve the Cat finds her home…..

This is the true story of Christeve the Cat who found her home with Janet the Artist in the Magical Town of Crickadoon. 

In this portrait, Christeve looks like the cat who swallowed the canary…….:)



During a wild storm in The Magical Town of Crickadoon on Christmas Eve 1996, a little cat ran for shelter into a nearby cottage.




The cottage belonged to Janet the Artist.    After the storm had passed, Janet the Artist looked for the owners of the little cat, and was told that they had moved away two years before, and that the little cat had been homeless ever since. 



The little cat settled into the cottage immediately and because she had arrived on Christmas EveJanet the Artist named the little cat Christeve. 



Christeve and Janet the Artist lived very happily together.    Christeve would sit with Janet the Artist  as she painted, and of course Janet the Artist made many paintings of Christeve. 




Janet the Artist wrote a little book telling the story of how Christeve the Cat found her new home…….The story is all about trust, love and believing in the unseen magic in our world. 


Here is Christeve the Cat enjoying the comfort and warmth of her new home.

    Dear Janet,
    As you know I am very familiar with your Christeve Story, having seen it in various earlier manifestations, but this is a particularly simple, direct and touching version, especially in how both Chisteve’s portrait emerges in parallel with how she came to you

    Love the story… always, Janet, and in every rendition. Your book is one of my favorites. So it’s good to see such an eye to eye meeting with a favorite cat once again…
