the Real Studio Managers - 3. Jack, Neeno and Barley

This is part 3 of a series showing the REAL managers behind the artists of the In the Making team on etsy

Please meet IMteam member Pam from Wicked Darling and Silent Heart Vintage with her 3 studio managers keeping her more than busy ..

.. well, er, Jack looks very well behaved here, sitting cosily .. he loves to watch Westerns and the animal planet channel (good taste in my books!)

... hmm, but see that paw, and the glint in those shiny eyes?

yup, thought so - Jack likes to explore and get Inside the Box ...

oh! and here we have him being egged on by his mentor Neeno

- just look at the stealth position Neeno is in, watching Jack's style as he squeezes into that, er, very small box

ofcourse, when Jack was just a tiny thing he got as much encouragement from Neeno as any tiny kitten could - climbing skills, grooming skills, and hugging skills!
looks like he has the hang of it pretty well!

plus Jack also excels in 'flying squirrel' technique, as he takes dives off the furniture!

Neeno has been a good teacher! and a good manager because when Pam is spending too much time on her computer then Neeno will be sprawled out on the floor, acting like a small bear, er, cat rug

and sprawled out on the couch doing the little fur rug impression again just so Pam can have a laugh and break - after all a good laugh is nearly as good as a gym workout! and makes getting thru a hard day of work so much easier

Barley is a little more relaxed than the other 2 boys.
He's a diabetic so gets his medicine injections twice a day and he thinks that is a far more productive way for Pam to be getting a break from work, than trying to avoid living fur rugs all over the place!

he chooses his toys carefully too, after all, play time should be enjoyed and the toy should be appreciated and he likes to inspect his toys too, making sure that they are just right for that play session,
and that they are, hmmm, ....

that they are all there!
and no-one else has been cat-burglaring them! Pam is more than welcome to help in the daily auditing!
.... 1 x pink mouse, 1 x green ball, 1 x hamster ....

Same time next month - meet more of the REAL managers doing REAL work!
