Here is our “Cat Closet” that we built with a carpeted shelf on top, shelf on the side with a scratching post supporting it for them to climb up.

There is a smaller tan carpeted cat platform for them to leap up and down from these places, which they do so quickly that it amazes me.

I caught both Lisa and Kyoko playing with their new toy together. Of course when I took my camera out they both froze and stared at me.

Lisa was on the top shelf playing with the string part of the toy, which made the mouse below swing around.

That enticed Kyoko to bat the little white mouse toy around!

They are SO CUTE, like they were caught and felt guilty or something… poor kitties I felt like I ruined their fun.

I really enjoy making art and what better way to share it than to offer products with my art on it?

The buttons and stickers are the most affordable and could make a pretty nice gift : )

Flying KITTEN

Just a reminder to us all that we should reach for the stars and follow our dreams!

(Unless they are bad scary dreams, in which case they are nightmares. Stay away from those.)

My art on a mug!

Some nice people submitted their cat pictures on facebook for me to draw their cats as a cartoon for a mug!

So here it is, it took me 2 days to finish this, Pretty happy with the end product : )
If you could share this with more cat people I would REALLY appreciate it <3

You can buy one of these cute coffee mugs at our Cafepress store: http://www.cafepress.com/Meekucat

So summer seems to have officially ended. With kids back in school and the rain pouring down, there is a looming feeling that I get about the season’s change.
I always miss the leaves on trees and the squirrels bustling around. I know, the leaves have barely even turned much color yet… I just dread it.
The cold is sickly and the rain soaks everything. I will miss my garden and the sunshine.

I’ve just been in the mood to make fan art lately, there are a lot of people out there who post nice things about their animals. Here is a drawing I did inspired by pictures from an instagram user:
winnie_cat_ has a wonderful cat who is friendly with the family birds. There are even video clips of the cuties together!

So I spend an awful lot of time drawing this picture the other day.

You sank my battleship burger

Here is Disco the parakeet’s video with him saying this funny quote: “You sank my battleship burger

Skip to 2:09 to hear just this saying!

Disco’s poor human had to have knee surgery and is in need of some cheering up! If you like Disco why not pop on by and cheer her on?

Our cat scratching post has taken a lot of abuse over the past 3 years. It was in pretty sad condition, with just shredded scraps of carpet hanging to the bones of the post.

Today I finally got inspired to repair the scratching post and give it renewed life!
Here is two of our main post frequenters, Lisa and Kyoko showing their approval of the new carpet adorning the post.

I used an old rug to replace the deceased carpeting, it took me at least 2 hours to complete the whole process of measuring, cutting out carpet and removing the old super dusty ripped carpeting, then stapling in the new carpet.

I’m so glad we didn’t have to just buy a new scratching post, we are really pretty much broke…
Plus throwing big things like this always feels like such a waste.
If I can fix old things like this it restores purpose and gives me a feeling of accomplishment. Now every time I see the scratch post I don’t have to think “Sigh, Its all torn.” Or “I WISH we could afford a new one”.

Our cats used to go flying off of this cat tree like squirrels! Ever since the GIANT rip they haven’t been frolicking off of it so carefree. I hope they will use it like they used to <3

Here are some before and after pictures:

Lisa Scratch Post EDIT
Lisa stopped my work on the scratching post about half way through. She was all like “WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TO MY BED?!”
