When our newly adopted kitten Thymus Tornado disappeared a while ago, we were heartbroken. I made a plush cat for my son to deal with the loss, and then created an illustration with Thymus remembering the short but happy time we spent together to deal with his inexplicable disappearance myself. After 3 weeks Thymus returned – miraculously he had been saved from a basement boiler room in the neighborhood where he'd been locked in by mistake without any food and water! I decided to make a plush character out of Thymus' good memories for a group show of The Eggplant Collective. Thymus is happy and healthy again and enjoying to curl up on his comforting memories for a good night's rest.
