It’s #Caturday!

10 Sep

Caturday, an Internet phenomenon. Like cats. I read a theory a while ago about why the Internet has been taken over by cats. It reckoned that dog owners have always had a chance to meet other doggy types because they walk their dogs and take them to training schools and there are dog clubs and networks in the real world. Well, as anyone who shares their lives with cats knows, walking and training the cat is just laughable. Okay, there are a few people who persevere and manage to do both, but you still don’t generally bump into people walking their cats, because the streets are full of people walking their dogs and that usually doesn’t go down too well with cats.

So when the Internet came along, we cat people could come out of our real-world isolation and share cat pictures, stories, cute kitty merchandise and the Internet phenomenon was born. And continues unabated.

Here’s mine.

"Get Off Those Curtains #1"

    Ha! I am also a cat person, I prefer cats in my older years…..I have had enough of dealing with dogs. How long did it take to make this woodblock? I have to wrap my brain around the reverse image thing with woodblocks or is it woodcut?

      Either is okay, but a wood engraving is something different. It didn’t take long to cut. I used plywood and kept my tools sharp. I F d dogs too much hassle now although I like them a lot.

        Yep, I agree, dogs are too much of a hassle, I do have a granddog and we enjoy each other when he visits…..that is good enough for me. lol
