Banana Joe, a black affenpinscher, won Best in Show at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show on Tuesday. He’s cute, he’s got a funny face, he’s the first of his kind to win Westminster. Congrats Banana Joe, but yawn. Let’s talk CAT SHOWS!
Cat shows don’t get nearly the amount of attention as dog shows. In the future, with the internet’s love of all things cat, I’m sure this will change, but for now they are still flying under the radar except to those who are truly devoted.
This is where photographer Dustin Fenstermacher steps in. In 2009, after the loss of his father, Dustin needed to escape. His escape route? Cat shows.
I’m not sure exactly how many cat shows Dustin has visited over the past couple of years, but he recently had a gallery exhibit at Gravy Studios showcasing the photographs from this period. Click through below to see more stunning photographs.
As you may or may not know, last Tuesday was National Pancake Day. While it may not be a reason for banks to close, it is a reason for me to search on the internet for cats and pancakes. Which is how I found Dan Lacey.
Some of you may already know about Dan Lacey. He is, after all, the Painter of Pancakes. He has appeared all over the internet, yet somehow, I had totally missed out on his greatness. Huffington Post posted a great interview with him today about his more political artwork. This, however, is a blog about cats so we will just be looking at his paintings that pertain to the feline kind. Click through to see more of Dan’s artwork.
A new exhibition opened yesterday that makes me want to quit my day job, and fly out to London RIGHT NOW!
LOLCat – Teh Exhibishun is currently going on at the Framer’s Gallery in London. The exhibit looks to ignore “the crudely makeshift LOLCAT aesthetic”, and instead showcase each artist’s “unique take on the theme to create a piece of beautiful, amusing and exquisitely crafted LOLCAT art”. Check out some of the pieces, and also check out BBC News for more info and a video!
