Caturday Art: Putting on the Ritz

You know, it isn't all just jeans and t-shirt with me. I am quite cultured (not to mention handsome and talented) and make quite a figure when I'm out on the town.

And of course, being a legend in my own mind I get VIP access to all the clubs I choose the frequent.

And yes, all of the lady cats dig it.

Mancat About Town

It's not all clubbing either. I'm a connoisseur of all types of music, so yes, a night at the opera, or a bit of classic music is never out of place.

I can be quite the suave and sophisticated charmer. Even the massage therapist seemed to think I could give James Bond a run for his money when I turn on the charm. She can't resist me of course, I have her wrapped around my paw!

Night on the Town

Truly, how could anyone resist! Well read, well educated and well mannered. And I don't have a license to kill so there will NOT be enemy spies showing up in the middle of my nights out to ruin it!

Where would YOU like to go for a night on the town?

Caturday Art: Pharaoh's Day

I found out something strange about this place where I live. They don't celebrate Father's Day. Instead they have Pharaoh's Day. And they were doing this long before American Pharoah made his run for glory. (And what is with that horse anyway, that he can't spell his name right?)

Now, from a purely feline perspective, this makes sense. For the most part, Cat fathers are lousy dads. They just knock up some female and split, leaving her to deal with the kittens. I mean, talk about dead beat dads! I never even knew mine. But we do have a link to Egypt, our species having come from over in Egypt and all. And we were Gods there!

And Pharaoh's were Gods. So if I'm a Pharaoh, that makes me doubly God worthy. Or something like that. Sounds good to me. BTW, how do you like my royal barge?

Heart of the Nile

Now, the Demon Cat insists she is Queen of Denial. Fine. Great for her. She's the Queen of a stinky old river full of snakes and crocodiles and water monitors. Me? I've the got the Valley of the Kings, full of pyramids and sphinxes and treasure and other cool stuff. I think I've got the better deal.

I look particularly kingly and Pharaoh-ish in this picture, don't you think?

Valley of the Kings

Domestic cats are descended from the African Wildcat which looks very much like a regular old tabby cat. Tabby is the natural coat pattern for a cat, it helps us blend in with our surroundings. That's why there are so many tabbies in the world. So whatever breed out there wants to lay claim to being the sacred cat of Egypt, they're wrong. TABBY CATS were there first. We're the original sacred cats of Egypt. The King Cat. The God Cat.

The Pharaoh.

That being said, Happy Pharaoh's Day to all of you, my subjects!

Caturday Art: Grand Old Flag

This is a very patriotic time of year. At the end of May you have Memorial Day. At the beginning of July you have Independence Day. And stuck, right in the middle and largely ignored, is Flag Day.

Flag Day, June 14th commemorates the adoption of the flag of the United States, which happened on that day in 1777. It's also the birthday of the United States Army, although no one ever really celebrates that either, although they should.

Flag Day is not an official federal holiday, although many states and organizations hold celebrations. I decided to honor flag day with some red, white and blue, being a very patriotic puss and all.

Grand Old Flag

Besides, I figured with all the trouble that has being plaguing me, being patriotic is very good for my image. I also want to take a moment to thank all the fan cats who sent letter supporting me and the boys through this difficult period. You truly make all the work we go through to make Van Meowlin' a success worth it!

Freedom's Ring

And no, while it's a sweet suggestion, I have no desire to run for purresident. If I did that I don't think I'd have time for my music and that wouldn't be fair to all the fan kittens out there. Nope, we'll just stick to supporting the US in the more traditional way by waving my flag!

And don't miss the rest of the stops on the Caturday Art Blog Hop. Think of it as a Flag Day purraid! And who doesn't love a purraid?!

Caturday Art: Happy Trails!

Well, after all the trouble with the press last week, I decided I needed to get out of the public eye for a bit and so I booked myself a vacation at the Happy Trails Dude Ranch.

I figured this would be just the sort of thing I need. Wide open spaces and a laid back atmosphere, and some the best Texas rock around.

Yes, sir, got me a good old horse, my cowboy boots and a guitar, and they even gave me this shiny badge. How was I to know it came with a catch?

Happy Trails

It seems there was some trouble brewin'. Some mysterious, evil, demon cat from hell and her mousie minions was robbin' stagecoaches, rustlin' cattle, and stealin' treats. I THOUGHT this had gotten cleared up a couple of weeks ago, but obviously not.

So I got my boys together and we formed a posse, and we headed out to try to round up the miscreants. We did catch a few rotten rodents and threw them into the hoosegow, but as for the demon cat, well...she's a hard case. It will take a better cat than me to bring her to justice!

Giddy Up

Still, it was a job well done and I think the boys in my posse deserved a treat, so we headed out to the Steam Valley Chicken know, the kind of place where, as ZZ Top would say..."anytime you've got the time, and the ten to get yourself in".

And I'm not gonna say any more on that because some kitten might be reading this and I already get accused of corrupting America's youth with my song lyrics. (Freedom of speech baby! Freedom of speech!)
