The first Cat that I designed was in 2009 for the Dog & Cat sculpture that I created for the North Shore Animal League America. The cat on that sculpture is specifically designed with curved feet to fit onto the back of my 6′ American Dog. I had a couple of clients who had been asking for a cat that could stand on its own and after redesigning the feet a little, the cat shown below emerged.
One persistent (and patient) client wanted a cat that would mimic the dog and have a bone shape cut into its belly. After some thought, the design for Goldy unfolded. This cat was the feline version of the American Dog. It goes great as a companion piece to the American Dog and its design would not have come about without the encouragement of our client, a veterinary doctor from Massachusetts.
