We all love our feline babies, but does your love of cats extend elsewhere? For instance: I have cat figurines; cat pictures in almost every room that includes a bobcat with his catch, an oriental cat looking at a big, French cats, cat on a window sill in watercolors; cat pj’s; cat address place; cat bumper sticker; shadow cat yard decor; cat books and 2 cat calendars because I couldn’t decide which one I liked better! I’m sure I’m missing something but you get the idea. In what ways do you guys show your love for cats?

I guess that I would say we show our love of cats by going and volunteering at our local shelter. We spend time with the cats, snuggling them and playing with them. I don't really have many stickers, figurines, etc. - but we do have many stuffed animal cats!

I think it’s absolutely beautiful you’re so proud of your love for 🐈 . I’ve had my cat for a couple weeks I’m already thinking about framing some of her pictures LOL

Me too. I have a few cat figurines etc. that other people have given me, but don't go buy them myself.

When our neighbors go out of town for any length of time, they leave us with a house key, and Michele takes their dog out twice a day for a walk. Each time, they repay her with a goodie bag that includes a cat-themed coffee mug, because she refuses to take money. She has 6 or 8 of them now, plus other cat related things too numerous to mention.

I have several cat mugs and t-shirts. I also have a cat cooking set - oven gloves and a kitchen towel. I have a Chinese Lucky Cat statue too that I got during the Lunar New Year celebrations here in London a couple of years ago. And a cat calendar for next year too.

I only have four figurines of the Egyptian cat god bastet. I bring one home everytime I holiday there. My husband also has a cat mug which is funny. I bought it him from the cat for father's day :lol:

Our home is filled with artwork of various types, but there is more "cat stuff" than anything else.....

This little guy naps on our kitchen island



Found this guy at a flea market. He is solid wood, he was missing an ear, had gouges all over, water damage and was painted solid pink. I carved him a new ear, filled the gouges and water damaged areas, reworked his face and gave him a new paint job...We are talking about the cat on the left ...:lol:....the other one is our Bengal Makena......


We have a bunch of these around, different cats hanging on...


Wife paints on rocks, probably a dozen of these around in window sills, corners etc...


Coming down our pocket stairs from upstairs... The hanging cats my wife cut on her scrollsaw along with the two wooden puzzle cats on the little shelf. The rest are little sculptures we found or I carved over the years


Gift from an artist friend who does pointillism


Prototype models in wood for metal silhouette cats I will be selling in the future..



Wood sculpture


8x8 fused glass of my business logo, gift from my wife


More sculpture



Steinlen's iconic poster in the kitchen


Had a bunch more pics, but they showed up as red Xs, so I edited the rest out.

Steinlen's iconic poster in the kitchen


One of my wife's first stained glass projects..


Another scrollsaw project from my wife


Yard sale find, he has since been stripped, sealed and painted black with highlights - lives out in our courtyard now with a bunch of other cat sculptures tucked into here and there. That's our June Bug posing alongside


Really just scratching the surface here, there is a lot more cat stuff in our home.

But I gotta say, cats themselves are living living works of art. Cats are stunningly beautiful, graceful creatures. I have spent hours trying to capture images that show their beauty, perfection and poise...

June Bug as a kitten (there is a framed copy of this in my workshop)
