Tard’s Cat Ball


OK, by now you’ve heard of Tard, the Grumpy Cat, right?

You know, the cat that always looks grumpy and unhappy. Her photos have made for some hysterical LOL cat commentary! Well, I was pretty excited to find this fabric, because lol and behold, it has a grumpy cat on it! No jokes!


“I had fun once. It was awful!”


“Worst apocalypse ever.”


“Of all the nine lives I’ve lived, this is the worst.”


“This is my happy face.”

This silly Cat Ball is available at my Etsy store, and coming soon to my web store!


Cat Canoe in Fur

I’ve got some really nice faux fur fabrics available, and they look wonderful made up as a Cat Canoe. Don’t just take my word on it, though. See what my models have to say:

The beautiful peachy pink and pearl collar that Retro is wearing was made by Greenbelts, another Etsy seller.

Orange Stripe Cat Canoe

I’ve read that cats can see colors, and perhaps they have some preferences. I figure they like any color that smells like tuna. This Cat Canoe is in some fun colors for sure, but it might smell more like a clown than a deep sea fish!

The Cat Ball and Reality TV

If you love reality TV, especially shows about people who are a bit unusual, you probably already know about Preppers and how they prepare for the end of the world. No matter your preferred doomsday scenario, you’re going to need food, shelter and weaponry. Show your cat how much you care by providing him with the shelter he needs when the zombies begin to walk, the lava flows, and the economy crashes!


Wild Animal Fabric

It simply makes sense to use wild cat fabrics!

How To Photograph Cats #4

Look. It isn’t easy to do.

They know that you’re up to something, so they either try to sniff the camera lens, or they walk away, so all you get is a close up of cat nose, or a long shot of cat bee-hind.

In this photo shoot, I’m using a radio control device so I can wrangle the cat into position and then take the photo, or at least that was the idea. I was having a hard time making the radio thing work though, and the end result is really hilarious serious of photos. Enjoy me looking like a complete dork in this set.

Thanks to Pacer Stacktrain for taking time out of his busy birdwatching schedule to help me with this photo shoot!

My Cat Ball product is available in my Etsy Store, or directly from my shopping cart.

Orange Geo Surprise

These kittens are half Angora, half Siamese. They are vocal little guys, and make the oddest noises I’ve ever heard! We let them loose in this orange geo Cat Ball, and things got crazy really quickly!
