I met Louise at my first job out of art school. I was at the beginning of my career, she was at the end of hers. She was a quirky, old school designer with a lot of spunk—creativity simply oozed out of her pores. Now, at 85 years old and long into her retirement, she has found an outlet for her creativity: cats. Not just any old cat, no, these cats are unique and special and are sure to make you smile. Get to know one of the most unique people I have ever known through this illustrated poem—my homage to a great lady with great talent.
