These days whenever we can we jet off to visit my mom. Not only does she rank as one of the world’s greatest moms, but visiting her means we get to see little Puck, her Siamese cat. He’s intelligent, endlessly curious, friendly, playful and funny. In short, he’s the inspiration for my cat art!

Like my mom (and me!) is even more amusing when the artwork is simple, quirky and even a little naughty, too!

Might only come sporadically (there’s rules against having a cat in our New York City apartment), but fortunately I can still live vicariously by creating my cat artwork!

P.S. The note cards above are available in my shop at Etsy. You can even create a boxed set of 7 (your choice of cards) using this link.
