The only way to start the day, my favorite handcrafted cat coffee mugs and cats!

These fun, handcrafted cat coffee mugs are a great way to start your day because cats and coffee (or tea) go so well together. It’ll get you going in the morning; and later in the day, curl up with a lovely cup of coffee or tea, and a cat or two (or more). My Kitty Care is always looking for unique cat gifts, especially if it’s handcrafted, or hard to find, so we’re so pleased with our newest addition. These  wonderful cat coffee mugs are created and handcrafted by Russell Pulick in his New York studio.

cat art at The Metropolitan Museum

Last week, my friend Jenny and I went to The Metropolitan Museum of Art, located in New York City,  Although we didn’t seek out cats in art, we happily found two excellent examples. The first one is a sculpture by Giacometti. I really like most of his work, but hadn’t seen this particular cat sculpture in bronze. Turns out the only other animal sculptures he did was one of a dog, two of horses.

Giacometti remembered that his brother Diego’s cat “passed just like a ray of light,” squeezing it’s lithe and predatory form close to objects without ever touching them.

The other wonderful surprise was because Jenny wanted to track down an artist she likes: Balthus. Luckily for us, when asking for directions from a Met guard, he steered us to the painting Jenny wanted to see, then generously directed us to Balthus paintings scattered in other collections, around the museum. That’s how we came upon Thérèsa Dreaming, a 1938 painting by Balthus.

Being that Jenny is a cat person too, we were both delighted by the cat in the painting.

Thérèsa Blanchard, who was about twelve or thirteen at the   time this picture was made, and her brother Hubert were neighbors of Balthus in Paris. She appears alone, with her cat, or with her brother in a series of  eleven painting between 1936 and 1939.

Jenny and I had a fabulous day. Can’t wait to return to The Met to discover more cats in art.
