Stepping Out With Wylla Stout: Shop Cat For the Afternoon at Linda's
Linda, a friend I met many years ago through the craft and junk world, opened up a lovely little store on Antique Row in Downtown Tacoma. It's called Linda's With Wild Abandon, and it's filled with all sorts of vintage loveliness and a few handmade gifts and jewelry pieces.
Wylla and I braved the wet weather and paid her a visit yesterday afternoon to say hello and check out the new store.
When we first arrived, Wylla spent a few moments sniffing around the stockroom. I fished her out of the back, she said hello to Linda and a shop guest, then she started exploring every corner of the store.
Wylla was quite comfortable there, and made herself right at home in the displays. There were lots of comfy chairs to curl up on, and good places to perch. She looked so pretty surrounded by Linda's pretty things - especially the pinky-peachy things that matched her pink nose and peach patches so well - like the dresser in the front window.
She really enjoy her temporary roll as "shop cat".
Linda, who considers herself much more a "dog person", seemed to be quite taken by our wee girl. No surprise there, Miss Wylla is a charmer and she often impresses the people we visit on our outings with her calmness and sweetness. She's one unflappable, adaptable cat.
