September is cat month! I will paint cats daily. The word “meowtastic” probably describes September most accurately. Or perhaps “furrmazing” if you like inventing new words. Anyway, I hope to hear some purring while I paint. Let’s get this party started!
First of all, let’s talk about cats who stare. I mean stare directly into your soul and communicate through telepathy. All cat lovers know at least one of these seemingly terrestrial beings. These cats have an intense nature. If reincarnation does exist, cats may be the beasts who invented it. They certainly exercise some very human-like traits. They give you disapproving looks and complain, with their eyes, when they want to tame you into cooperating with them. According to Egyptian mythology the goddess Bastet has the ability to transform into a cat. Most cats I know definitely expect to be treated like a goddess so this make perfect sense to me. Especially the cats who stare!
For example, Cleo has all of the characteristics of a goddess trapped in a cat’s body. She likely has a Ph. D. in hypnotism too. When I look at a picture of her I can’t help but stare into her eyes. I’m positive she always gets exactly what she wants. Who could say no to that intense stare? She’s got us all wrapped around her little dew claw. She means business too. You better not misbehave!
So, tell me, does your cat get you to do her (or his) bidding by staring? Tell me a story about your cat in the comments. We should make this cat month as entertaining as possible! I’d appreciate some funny cat stories.
I still have a few days open if you want me to paint your cat this month. Space is limited so please contact me on Facebook or email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I’ll give you the details. You can purchase your cat’s 5×7 portrait for $12 (including shipping).
