Mews and Nips: Cat Inspired Art Show Comes to Los Angeles


Two weeks ago, we reported on an art competition in a gallery in Brooklyn, NY, which will challenge artists to complete cat themed paintings in two hours.  Now cats are taking over the art world in Los Angeles.  Complex Art and Design reports that after a season of New York cat themed exhibitions, including The Cat Show at White Columns and Balthus: Cats and Girls at the Met, the kitty art craze is headed West. On Jan. 23, 2014, an exhibition titled “Cat” (what else!) will go on view at a yet to be unveiled location. Part of the proceeds from “Cat” will go to the Stray Cat Alliance. Read the full story on Complex Art and Design.

If you missed any of the stories featured on The Conscious Cat this week, here’s a recap: on  Monday, we shared information on a new study about tail vaccinations for cats, on Tuesday, we introduced you to artist Deborah Julian and her feline assistants, on Wednesday, we reviewed an innovative and eco-friendly glass pet bowl, and on Friday, we covered last weekend’s Alley Cat Allies National Conference. And don’t forget to enter our giveaway for an assortment of Tipsy Nip Organic Cat Toys.

I found today’s video of Styx drummer Todd Sucherman and his cat Cleo utterly endearing. I think all of us can relate. On a side note: Styx was the first rock concert I attended as a teenager back in the day (Sucherman has only been drumming with Styx since 1995, and I can guarantee you that I wasn’t a teenager in 1995…)


Have a great weekend

    My first concert was Aerosmith. I figure that as long as Steven Tyler can wear those pants, I can’t really be old. And to prove it I got roped in to taking a Real Age test done by Dr. Oz. Turns out that my “mental” age is 23. I’m not sure if that means I’m immature or that I’m open to new things. I’ve pretty much decided to be happy with any part of me that can pass for 23. Have a great weekend.

      I like the way you think, Dorothy! You have a great weekend, too.
