Billy's Glamor Shot
Billy Slee
Billy Slee; Artist Bio

My full name is William Lambykins Pit-Woofie Slee; one simple name never seemed to suit me. You can call me Billy Slee, itís what my family calls me. Rescued in the fall of 1988, a stray kitten dropped off at a city mall, Iíve since lived contentedly in Mansfield, Connecticut for nearly two decades.

An erudite cat living near a University can learn a lot in 17 years. By strict definition, perhaps, I am an indoor Ďdomestic short-hairí. I live in defiance of labels, and in celebration of my various talents. My hobbies, relatives and friends have brought me many places and shown me much of the world.

My favorite pastime, called "Letterboxing" (thatís not litterboxing!), constantly brings me new adventures, and Mansfield has more boxes than anywhere in Connecticut! Letterboxes often have me out on local trails, and even hiking the ridges of Kent in Macedonia State Park and traveling the highways and byways seeking out historic homesites in Torrington and Goshen. Leaving my signature, this is how I learned to paint with my paw! You can learn more about my hobby at the website www.letterboxing.org.

Iíve always been one to use my paws. I have accomplished much, and have overcome great obstacles, even without opposable thumbs. I'm affectionately known as "The Eleven Cent Cat" to my veteranarian, having eaten that amount in change. In surviving the stomach operation to have it removed, my 'grandmother' and sponsor might have that read the "The Three Hundred Dollar and Eleven Cent Cat".

Recently Iíve been exploring the world of art. Iíve discovered through my painting that Iíve a unique talent for capturing the images of my travels and my surroundings. One of my favorite mediums to work in is (non-toxic) Ink and Stamp Pad. It's my pleasure now to share my enthusiasm with the world! I take great joy in creating my paintings, and hope you find the same jubilation in my different works of Cat Stamp Art.

Billy Slee passed away September 14, 2007, at the age of 19 years old.
He will be greatly missed for all his unique talents, and for the majestic love he shared.
Billy, Your 'Mom' will always love and remember you!
