Cats come up a lot.
The artist (the closest-to-main character) has two cats,
and also, every so often, at night and when none of the humans are looking, there are the mistcats, made of cloudstuff.

A Pocketful Of Clouds
It's... not, Solarpunk. But it hits a lot of the same notes for me.?
It's about small town, small wooden houses and pathways, above the clouds at the top of a high clocktower from an ancient civilization.
There's no plot, there's just... people. The historian, there study the clocktower. The innkeepers and their children. The artist, there to paint clouds. The lady who catches dreams. ...
It's lovely, and beautiful.

Carpetweed (Mollugo verticillata). Archaeological evidence has demonstrated its presence all over North America for a least 3000 years. Known to be edible and nutritious, it is also said to have several medicinal qualities, including anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory properties. All these amazing properties in one tiny ubiquitous weed!
