Shoot for the moon.

It's that terrific time of the week. It's the weekend, which means some fantastic blog hops. To kick things off, we have Athena's always fun Caturday Art blog hop.


I don't know why certain moods strike me sometimes, but lately I've still been in the mood to use some of my favorite inspirational sayings in my doodles. And so that's what happened for today's piece.


I think I've used this saying in a doodle before, but I can't remember for sure (and I'm also too lazy to go look through my past doodles to verify). Anyway, "Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars." is one of my favorite sentiments. Evan said he wanted to help illustrate it, and so he gets to be a moony mancat today.

Happy Caturday, everybuddy! And don't forget to shoot for the moon!

Our Tip of the Day:
Have you heard of how you can name stars after people? You can do this as a special gift to someone, or in memory of a lost loved one. What's more, if it is something that interests you, you can also name a star after a furbaby. So, if you are looking for something a bit different or special to do in honor of a beloved kitty or pup, living or passed, you could consider naming a star after them. If you do this, do try to avoid scammers, of course, and to find a source that is reputable.

  1. I love your drawing. You did use that quote before ( which is fine with me)because I remember commenting on it as it is a favorite of mine. We have a frame with that quote on it and in the frame is a photo of Venus we took with a special camera attached to a telescope at an observatory in Maine. That is a great tip, I should actually do that for my hubby because he loves space so much. Have a great day!

  6. It doesn't matter if you repeat yourself ... it is a good saying and bears repeating. You say avoid scammers, but how does one do that if they don't know who's who ... this is a tricky world and one has to work hard to be safe. I like the idea of naming stars after a loved one ... may have to look into it :)

  9. I want a star named after me! TW thinks about it periodically but doesn't want to spend the money as if I'm not worth it. Evan, you may be the first cat on the moon!

  10. Mom has looked into that star naming but never done it. She thinks that the doodles are much more meaningful with a quote. This is a favorite of hers as well. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo and Cooper Murphy
