Caturday at the Bakery

I recently saw an artsy image of a whimsical little bakery. That inspired me to create a similar image, but in my own sort of style, and of course starring cats. One thing led to another, and this happened:


Of course, those kitties and their sugary sweets are our contribution to Athena's Caturday Art Blog Hop. Don't forget to visit Athena to see all of the masterpieces our friends have created!


Happy Caturday to all!

Did you know?
Did you know that the Louisville, KY, cat café known as Purrfect Day Cat Café aided in the adoption of 357 cats in just 3 months after opening its doors in 2018? This cat café formed a partnership with the Kentucky Humane Society, and its goal was to adopt out 300 cats in its first year. It certainly achieved that, with the aforementioned 357 cats it helped adopt out in a mere 3 months. The café also donated $8,200 to the Kentucky Humane Society.

Cat cafés originated in Japan, but in recent years they have been gaining increasing popularity in the United States, and worldwide. These cat cafés often partner with local shelters or rescues, bringing in adoptable cats who would do well interacting with humans in search of coffee and feline companionship. This can lead to wonderfully happy endings for adoptable felines, as Louisville's Purrfect Day Cat Café and others have proven.
