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!


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 fabulous collar that Retro is wearing was made by Greenbelts.

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!

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!

Kittens and the Green Thing!

I found this peculiar green fabric at a thrift store. It looks a lot better with kittens inside!
