Oh Joy

totally random... 12 May 2008


...but SO cute! Excuse my non-design post for a moment while I share with you this ridiculously cute image of Pito...a cat that my friend Jenn saw while in Japan on a recent trip. Pito wears a backpack and sits like a person on his owner's lap...and is so comfortable that he falls asleep that way. He looks like my cat Bruce except Bruce doesn't have a backpack. See a few more photos of Pito here.

{Turns out Pito is a very popular cat! See more photos of him from others here and here and here.}

Happy Friday! 28 Apr 2006

It's been a chock-full week of posting for me, so I'm going to say 'Bon Weekend' early today. I wanted to take a tiny break from design for a bit of oooh-and-awww cuteness. Here's a photo of (one of our cats) Lucy when she was a wee mini cat. Sometimes I feel this shocked and overwhelmed too, Lucy....have a great weekend, everyone...!


ahhh.... 1 Feb 2006

looking back on my days in Brooklyn...here's one of my favorite pics of Bruce on a peaceful Saturday afternoon in my previous lovely studio apartment on Joralemon Street...

Since I'm on a black & white kick this week...here's a classic photo of Bruce when he was a wee cat of one year. This is my favorite cat photo...he's pensive, yet sophisticated...

Hooray for Cats Wearing Pants! 30 Sep 2005


Last month, I came across these adorable prints from artist/illustrator Tammy. She created 100 of these cats, all of whom wear different slacks. Some are preppy, some are conservative, and some are just plain crazy with sparkly hot pants. They are all just so damn cute I had to buy a few. There's nothing funnier than imagining my cats wearing these pants!

AND, the cats have names! The ones I have are named Fancy {top, with sparkly red pants & orange button}, Marlon {cream pants & red button}, and Salami {hot pink pants & orange button}.

Bruce likes Catherine Malandrino? 15 Sep 2005


Is it normal for a boy cat (namely, my cat Bruce) to enjoy laying on my silk Catherine Malandrino top?
