Deirdre, Original One-of-a-kind Birman Cat Art Doll by Max BaileyDeirdre is a lovely Birman cat.

Deirdre doesn’t walk. She wafts. Sometimes she floats. Her silky hair wafts and floats along with her.

Deirdre, Original One-of-a-kind Birman Cat Art Doll by Max BaileyThe first thing you notice about Deirdre are her deep sapphire-blue eyes, looking directly out at you from her dark little face. They are full of mystery and wonder.

“What a pretty kitty!” you can’t help saying.

“I know, but thank you,” she replies, and wonders why you state the obvious. It is more fact than flattery.
