Happy Monday my friends. I type this sitting in my friend Kiki’s living room with the assistance of her cat Barnaby, a 12 pound black and white tuxedo cat. Kiki says Barnaby weighs 12 pounds but he feels more like 34 pounds, perhaps more. Hard to say. When a cat is bound and determined to take a nap on your laptop’s keyboard (while you are typing), belly up, driving a meaty hamhawk paw into your face, a single claw extended up into your nostril, 12 pounds feels like 34. Either way, he’s real cute. And he is all rolly-rolly and oreo colored so this is probably as close to panda cuddles I will ever get, so, I’ll accept his assistance in writing this post. Thanks, Barn!
Speaking of cats, last week was Lola’s birthday. And not only her birthday – her Bat Mitzvah. That’s right. She has always projected the attitude of a sullen teenager but now it’s official. HBD Lolabelle.
What else has been happening on the internet that is not cat related? Good question…

Thank you to everyone who took part in my art sale last week! Nearly everything sold in a flash but there are still a few prints and pillows plus a couple of big paintings left in stock. Just until tomorrow, I’m offering 20% off everything! Use promo code BARNABY20. Did I mention there is already free domestic shipping? Yeah. I’m nice like that. And I have a second batch in the pipeline. If I hustle this week it’ll be out sometime next week. Eeeep! Better get painting!
