The Colonel's Cat

Old Colonel Grant of 12th Hussars
Was one of quite the best, sir
He’d medals and bars and lots of stars
All hanging round ‘is chest, sir
‘E ‘ad but one real chum, and that
Was one old wall-eyed tabby cat.

I served with Grant in the Soudan
And crushed the Alabamas
And there one night to me ‘e ran
In tears and ‘is pyjamas
And to my dyin’ day I shan’t
Forget the face of Colonel Grant.

When in my tent ‘e first appeared
‘E cried so loud and lusty
The tears went splashing down ‘is beard
And made ‘is medals rusty
“Oh James, “ he cried (‘e called me that.)
“I’ve been and lost my bloomin’ cat!”

“That wall-eyed cat,” said poor old Grant
“I loved it like a brother.”
“Cheer up,” said I, “Dear Colonel, can’t
You go and buy another?”
But Colonel Grant did not agree
‘E drew ‘is sword and fired at me.

“Sound, Bugler, sound,” I ‘eard ‘im shout
And out the regiment tumbled
The mounted band came prancing out
The cannon clanked and rumbled
‘E told the men ‘is catty fears
And ev’ry man burst into tears.

'I see your cat, oh, Colonel dear' )

...then you might want to check out these two shops:

Starcats on storenvy

and

StarfireSundries on Etsy

Both of these are run by the same gentleman. Please spread the word if you know anyone who might be interested!

P.S. There are also some Lovecraft-themed and Sherlock Holmes-themed items!

(Photo-montaged) topiary cats for your viewing pleasure :)

One more, larger, cat )

I've not been painting for a while because I have been concentrating on my #surrealist project 'The Topiary Cat'. This is just one from the growing series of photo-montaged images.

Thought everyone would love this. A capybara loving his kitty. The capybara is the largest rodent in the world, whose closest relatives in the animal kingdom are guinea pigs.

Soliloquy By Shakespeare's Cat

To go outside, and there perchance to stay
Or to remain within: that is the question:
Whether 'tis better for a cat to suffer
The cuffs and buffets of inclement weather
That Nature rains on those who roam abroad,
Or take a nap upon a scrap of carpet,
And so by dozing melt the solid hours
That clog the clock's bright gears with sullen time
And stall the dinner bell. To sit, to stare
Outdoors, and by a stare to seem to state
A wish to venture forth without delay,
Then when the portal's opened up, to stand
As if transfixed by doubt. To prowl; to sleep;
To choose not knowing when we may once more
Our readmittance gain: aye, there's the hairball;
For if a paw were shaped to turn a knob,
Or work a lock or slip a window-catch,
And going out and coming in were made
As simple as the breaking of a bowl,
What cat would bear the household's petty plagues,
The cook's well-practiced kicks, the butler's broom,
The infant's careless pokes, the tickled ears,
The trampled tail, and all the daily shocks
That fur is heir to, when, of his own free will,
He might his exodus or entrance make
With a mere mitten? Who would spaniels fear,
Or strays trespassing from a neighbor's yard,
But that the dread of our unheeded cries
And scratches at a barricaded door
No claw can open up, dispels our nerve
And makes us rather bear our humans' faults
Than run away to unguessed miseries?
Thus caution doth make house cats of us all;
And thus the bristling hair of resolution
Is softened up with the pale brush of thought,
And since our choices hinge on weighty things,
We pause upon the threshold of decision.

~Henry Beard

Tumblr lolcat

I just learned that british photographer Harry Pointer made a lot of captioned photographs of cats in various situations in the late 19th century...

look at this:

the lolcat is over a century old

(from granadahvlmes Tumblr, who got it from transtrendad's Tumblr)
