What's New Pussycat?

My family adopted Cat Ballou when I was six years old and I've loved cats ever since. I currently have five cats (although I swore I'd stop at three!). This ATC series was inspired by two of them: Domino and Oreo who are both black and white. Domino was my dad's cat and she's 17, very slim and short-haired. Oreo is one of a pair (her sister is Cookie) that I rescued six years ago. She's very playful and fluffy with long-hair.

Having had cats for many years and taking them to the vet annually, I had lots of rabies tags saved in a glass jar. For this set, I painted different black and white cat faces and sewed the tags onto their collars with fishing line pierced through the cardstock.

Black and white cats are a marvel of nature. No two ever seem to look alike. To see more cats like this, check out a site where they call them "Kitlers" (only cats with Hitler mustaches need apply!).

I love seeing the ATCs in series. They have such impact before they are traded away. wonderful!!!

Okay, I know this post is a bit old, but I am still exploring your blog. I LOVE these cards, Ronna. I would really like to do some cat-related cards of my own. These are great!
