Anybody ever wondered where your kitty goes and what they see when they head out to play? So did Michael and Dierdre Cross, owners of Cooper the kitty photographer. Cooper wears a lightweight digital camera on his collar (it doesn’t bother him at all!) once a week, and it takes a new photo every two minutes.
For a kitty photographer, Cooper has taken some very interesting, cool photos:
Cooper has even been featured on Must Love Cats! Check it out!
And, as icing on the kitty-photography cake, you can see the world through Cooper’s eyes with his first photography book!
A huge thanks to Cooper and his family for giving us such a unique insight into the world of cats!
I am currently participating in the 30 Days of Creativity, and for Day 4 I attempted my first pixel art. Of course, it had to be a cat, and as I worked on it it progressed into a maneki neko. It’s certainly no masterpiece, but I think it’s pretty decent for my first pixel art creation.
Here are some other pixel art maneki neko that I found on DeviantArt. Which one is your favorite?
This is one of the most awesome things I’ve ever seen. When I was quite young, I had a thing for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. I don’t know if you can really be obsessed with something when you’re that young, but I definitely loved them (especially Michelangelo). I had toys, I had a tent, I even dressed up as one for Halloween. Years later, now a full fledged cat lady, I was happy to stumble upon this gem, and it’s totally made my day.
This whimsical piece of art was created by Ashley Culver as part of the Autumn Society Shell-Shock Ninja Turtles Show, which is today, June 3rd, in Philadelphia.
Just for fun, here’s Persephone and Michelangelo in an epic battle.
Gina sent in an oil painting of her cat, Echo, that she wanted to show off. I asked her to send in more pictures and a bit of info so we could feature Echo as our Featured Feline this week. Check out this fabulous tuxedo cat!
Echo is a tuxedo cat. She is 13 years old now. My brother saved her when she was just a kitten. He saw her stranded on part of a bridge on the high speed lane of a highway. He brought her to me cause I had just lost a cat to coyotes. She is very happy to be an indoor kitty which she has been all these years.
Here is an oil painting I did of her in 2007.
You can see how obviously regal & above it all she is! She is quite the character—as all cats are.
Want us to feature your cat(s)? We’re accepting submissions!
This artwork by Filipino artist May Ann Licudine a.k.a. “Mall” is simply amazing. There is so much going on, and the details are fantastic. While not in the traditional maneki neko pose, the cat dons the traditional collar and bell and is also holding a gold coin. I just love how happy he looks, and I love all of the Japanese elements, especially the daruma dolls and pandas.
I was happy to find this wonderful piece of art in my search for a maneki neko to post, because all of Mall’s art is really quite lovely. You can find more of her work on her blog, DeviantArt, and Flickr. She also has a store where you can buy her original artwork as well as prints.
