"Fun Finds" Friday

This is a random gathering of pet-related things we thought you might find interesting. 
(Okay, and a lot of it is from Mommy's snoop time on Pinterest!)

If you have a fun find you'd like us to feature, send us a shout-out by clicking on the Contact Us tab above.

This was my very first Pinterest purchase! Dr. Eve Riser-Roberts is a microbiologist and artist. She's also a very cool person we've had the pleasure of conversing with and getting to know! Eve's original series, "Famous Artists' Cats," is filled with both beauty and fun. She has 'envisioned' the cats of such artists as Gauguin, Monet, Van Gogh, Picasso and many more.

I loved the Jackson Pollock painting (below) and bought the fine art print (20x27 with white borders, $35).

If you visit the link for this painting, you'll be treated to a fun and whimsical story of how Jackson's cat came to have such a glorious coat.

You can view all Dr. Riser-Roberts' cat parody paintings - and their accompanying tales - as well as purchase fine art prints of them at The Cat Gallery.

My other two faves are Magritte's cats - the story is hysterical! - and Beethoven's cat. I love the visual double entendre in Beethoven's cat and the wit of the story, too.

  6. Oh, I have seen this artist's work before and she is awesome! My favorite painting of hers is the Van Gogh - I think it perfectly captures the feline spirit. ;-)
