Alot of you probably didn't know this but Andy Warhol lived with his mother and alot of Cats! 8,17,25? Nobody can agree on a certain number but all of his friends remember alot of them being around. Andy had produced a few line drawings of cats that he wanted to turn into a book and was looking for a catchy title. Thus the name ~25 Cats Named Sam and One Blue Pussy by Andy Warhol. (Although there are only 18 Sams in the whole book.)
The calligraphy inscribing the names of all the cats was done by Julia Warhola, Andy Warhol's mother. The book was one of the first of Warhols books to be bound and it is one of the most brightly colored of all his printed works. It was limited to 190 numbered copies, however he was not very attentive to numbers as he gave several copies of low numbered editions to people he wanted to impress. Each original was hand colored by Warhol. 

sooo.....HOw are These for Studio Cats???? Adorable?! in sort of a creepy cool way I think.
One of my girlfriends bought them and showed them to me and I had to go get me a pair for my studio.
Have to have cats lurking around right?
and of course in our real household we adopted this little cat a few weeks ago from the animal shelter. It was only a month old and had already killed 2 mice! Quite impressive, it made the other cat feel bad I think because its performance and social skills have improved! It's name was Scott, but I think the kids have already renamed it twice!
Ok, Im off to accomplish more important things in life today...like registering and showing up for school, getting kids off to school and organizing and decluttering. Let the busy Fall schedule begin! Happy Cat thoughts!
