Sweet Venus has been running around in my brain for over 15 years.
I knew everything about her, including her back story, shape, colors, personality, etc. But, for some reason, I put off creating her until this year. You see, Venus has had a rough life. Each sagging, dragging nipple was a constant reminder of another failed attempt at love. We have lost count of how many kittens she has had. What's even more heartbreaking is the number of times her heart has been broken, shattered into tiny bits. With each love loss and litter, her nipples just gave up. They sink lower and lower with every heartbreak.
As Venus's story continued to brew in my head, which is a terrifying place, I learned more and more about her and the family she and other cats like her created for themselves. Venus and her besties all live in a community together. They love and support one another and share life's ups and downs (I'm not talking about nipples here!).
While there is only one BuTT UgLee named Venus, the leader of the pack, there are dozens of her BFFs that I plan on creating. Each one will have her unique style and look, but all will have the classic sagging dragging nipples.
I allowed myself to make more than one "original" Venus. So, if you'd like an "original" Venus, I can create one that looks as close to the original one. I don't use patterns, so that I will get it as close to my first Venus as possible.
I picture a collection of UgLee cats on the wall. Venus is in the center with all of her BFFs gathered around her.
It's time to fire up that sewing machine.
