Oodles of Cats

Cats seem to be everywhere these days. After I wake up in the morning with my cat 's bum on my face, 
many feline faces invariably greet me as I sip my coffee while browsing through my facebook wall and pinterest. 
At the other side of the room, Seba is at work creating the cats for his 2013 calendar.
Right now, Chapi sits on my tablet licking himself as I try to find a way around him to write these words.
What can I do? I am powerless against his charm.Yes, felines can be addictive. 
Often, when artists start portraying them, they seem to find it difficult to stop..
Here is my contribution to the madness.

Not to mention the wonderful cat scenes by Franco Matticchio and my upcoming series on cat books for children!


  1. I find Elżbieta Wasiuczyńska's work adorable.

  2. Clare Owen's cats are an absolute delight!

  3. I also think of Wanda Gag's illustrations in Millions of Cats.
