Cats & Their Artists

Tuesday, August 3, 2010 · 7 Comments

I made it a whole year of blogging without talking about cats which is impressive considering that I treat my two cats like children and I’m constantly meeting amazing cats through their artist-owners’ blogs. Sometimes these cats are the true stars of the these blogs. There I said it.

Then I came across a blog about artists and cats! We Say Meow is the brain child of artists Mary Kilvert & Anke Weckmann and features both cat art and artists’ cats (above: Mia Christopher‘s kitties, below: a friend of Kate Larson).

And while we’re on the subject I must share some special cat art (Ashley G, Audrey May Erickson, Jennifer Davis).



.And a photo of my baby, Yoko. I swear she has human feelings.

    Here’s my Maine Coon boy, Mr Woody Wilson, if he doesn’t think he’s a person, he definitely thinks he’s a dog!

    Hi. Yes, your cat may well put on a bit of weight just after spinyag but that should settle down after a few months.You do not say whether your cats are indoor cats or do they go outdoors as well. During the winter the outdoor cats put on weight whilst they laze about in the warm house but once they start spending more time outdoors again, they lose the excess’ weight they have gained. We find that the indoor cats do not have such a great winter weight fluctuation as the cats which go outdoors as well. Personally, I’ve never found a satisfactory way of separating cats feeding to ease one cat having a special diet but if you can, good for you.Cats should always have a mix of wet and dry foods and not just one or the other. When using dry food in addition to wet food, the cat will need less of the wet food than if you just gave them wet food alone. This will help them to maintain their nutritional balance. Also, when putting out dry food, remember to ensure that the cat has a good supply of liquid as well. For dry food our cats all seem to like Iams and their coats seem to be more healthy but it is not cheap. Our cats also like Vitacat Healthy Balance(I believe this is an Aldi own brand) which is much more budget friendly and still keeps them very obviously healthy. For my current cats, these are the two dry foods I try to ensure are in the house at all times as they suit them best. However, the cats will also tolerate short spells on Go-Cat, which has a good variety of flavours to keep them interested, and Whiskas dry food but consistently turn up their noses at Tesco, Sainsbury and Asda dry foods. Over the years, and new cats, I’ve tried most brands and own labels but find that it is a trial and error exercise to find what suits the animals bestHope you find what your girls prefer and the youngest cat’s weight settles soon.(Edited to add the essential reminder to ensure that liquid is available if dry food is used in addition to wet food.)

  • 7 life insurance quotes // Apr 14, 2015 at 2:34 pm

    Thanks for the concepts you have contributed here. Additionally, I believe there are several factors that will keep your insurance premium down. One is, to take into account buying vehicles that are inside good directory of car insurance companies. Cars that happen to be expensive tend to be at risk of being snatched. Aside from that insurance is also good value of your automobile, so the costlier it is, then higher your premium you only pay.
