A friend of mine, knowing that I just started a cat blog, sent me the above invitation a couple days ago. Not knowing anything about Creatures of Comfort or United Bamboo, all I saw were the words ‘CAT CALENDAR PARTY’. I got very excited. Very, very excited. I tried to get pretty much all of my friends to go with me to what was sure to be a magical night. Unfortunately, no one could. Whatever. I’ll go on this amazing journey alone. Continue reading
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!
There is something charming and magical about banners. Seeing a “Happy Birthday” or “Welcome Home” banner warms the heart on special occasions. But why wait for a special occasion to hang one? With Banter Banners, artist Angela Deane has decided that banners are no longer for special occasions, but for every day.
Best of all is that she created a few banners specifically for cat lovers! Show off your cat pride with the “I (heart) My Cat” banner ($18) that is pictured above. I found a couple of others that I thought spoke directly to the cat lovers out there.
I love the simple “Cats” banner ($15). I would love to see this hanging above the kitchen sink in my house. Glancing up to see ‘Cats’ would definitely bring a smile to my face while doing the dishes.
I thought this ‘mini’ banner ($14) would be a funny one to hang right about your cat’s favorite nesting spot.
You can also make your own banner to say WHATEVER YOU LIKE! Maybe a little ‘mini’ banner with your pet’s name to hang right above their food bowl? So many cute possibilities.
