Sherpa - Taliesin Cat

Sherpa is the beloved cat of Taliesin in Spring Green, Wisconsin. She now has cancer and will be moving along.
In the spirit of honoring Sherpa & the joy with which she has every day undertaken her mission at Taliesin, we would like to ask something special of you. We have established a
 post office box for her and as your thoughts turn to her and the remarkable allure of her presence at Taliesin, can you put in writing what meeting her, seeing her here, reading of her or seeing her photos has meant to you?
Can you send us something - a card, a note, a photo of her, anything?

If so, please send your note to the address below or share your thoughts on this page.

 PO Box 307
 Spring Green, WI 53588
To you who have been to Taliesin and met her, marveled in her beauty and poise, you, who returned and asked for her, and you who have read this website, know this summer may be her final one. Even those of you who have not met her but still have a sense of who she is, we welcome your warm thoughts

Sherpa has reached out to literally thousands of people over the years just by being herself. She has padded the stones and basked in the flowers of Taliesin. She has joined tours in the Taliesin living room and made herself comfortable in Mr. Wright's chairs and wound herself around the legs of visitors from all over the world.
Can you now honor her and the mission she undertook so long ago and has filled so magnificently?
