Caturday Art: The Librarian in Ink

It's probably pretty obvious that I love to draw my furbabies. They do make for some pretty cute muses, if I do say so myself.

That being said, this week's drawing for Athena's Caturday Art blog hop, which we look forward to each and every week, was inspired by just this past Thursday's post starring Thimble. Remember that post, when Thimble the Librarian invited you to check out some books?


Well, my bookish little muse inspired me to draw this:


Nothing's as good as the adorable real deal, but this sure was fun to draw!

Happy Caturday to all of our furiends!

Be sure to visit Arty today for the last Pawlympics event - Smileys! Astrid and many other pro athletes are competing in this happy event!

Our Tip of the Day:
Despite what the above drawing might indicate, please remember to never leave candles or other open flames unattended around your furbabies. Such flames are, of course, dangerous and an overall fire hazard. Candles, fireplaces, stovetops, and even outdoor firepits or grills should always be carefully monitored with furbabies around, or completely blocked off from their reach. If you are concerned that your furbaby might have come in contact with and been injured by such a fire hazard, check their fur, skin, mouth, paw pads, and any points of potential contact for burns or other signs of injury. And, of course, get your furbaby to a veterinarian if any burns occur.

I love this drawing of Thimble- cats and books belong together :) I am sure Astrid will get a gold in the smiling event. Great tip, I never burn candles near my kitties. The only place we ever light them is in the dining room where no cats are allowed ( because all my plants are there too). Have a nice day.

I love the drawing so much! Especially the moon and stars outside the window. And of course, the candles are adorable, but yes, kitties and candles don't mix. We do occasionally burn a candle, but always way up high.

You certainly captured the sweetness in your little Librarian's Picture. Very cute and I couldn't agree more with your advice about keeping burning candles out of the reach of your pets. I just don'e burn them, that's the safest bet, but many people use them for aroma therapy or just for display and I worry about their pets. Thank you for spreading the word.

Thimble, you were the perfect inspiration for this adorable art today. Your mommy is so talented and we love her artwork. Mom can't believe she never asked, but do you all help her when she is doing it? If it was our house, either Lily Olivia amor Astrid would be sitting right in the middle of the paper.

What an inspiration you are to your mom, Thimble. Such a lovely drawing and great tip too. Granny never burns candles near by me. I am to fascinated by the flames, she says :D Pawkisses for a Happy Weekend :) <3

Adorable! You are so talented. We love the whimsy of your drawings.

I actually like the drawing better than the photo even though that's nice too. Chizzy got his foot singed walking on the stove when Gramma turned her back for a sec.

I still miss having a kitty around, even after all these years. To have one AND my own personal library would be like heaven!
