Andrew Wyeth SmackDown

  1. I like Cat; I'm glad he adopted you. And I think he wants to know why this Wyeth character thought there should be a dog on the bed.

  2. Is Cat hinting that he wants a portrait done?

  3. I think Cat is Rubio, returned to Altadena in a slightly more spotted coat. He knows where he belongs, and where he looks good.

  4. Cat's a hoot. This was not staged, by the way. He chose the spot all by himself for reasons either Marjie or KBF or both understand.

  5. I've been told by my cat vet, that female cats are 'queens'.. but lately, I think regardless of cat gender, its just how cats are... they love territory.. they claim what they want to claim... believe me, mine has claimed every amazon box that comes thru the door. she cares not what it looks like or how ratty it may get because of her big azz trying to fit in the smallest box.

    1. That's so funny; must get some boxes around here. And you know, given its native intelligence and polished social skills, I rather think Cat might be a she rather than he. The vet never said; all we talked about was the chip and how that made sure the cat had been vaxxed and fixed. I'll find out next visit.

    2. K- just look below her tail!... lol.... if u don't see balls, then u got your answer... :-) don't tell me u haven't peeked..

    3. Sure I checked. But they don't have balls when they're fixed. And unlike dogs, the penis isn't obvious, right?

    4. If it's a girl (which I doubt - the ginger gene is associated with males) you'll find a tear drop shape directly below the anus

    5. PA is right... btw the way my vet checked was to part the skirt of hair and you're right about the penis not being obvious.

  6. Pig sends her "meow" to Cat. THEY are related for sure. Pig's tiny though.

  7. Cat is some kind of genius, so of course he poses with the Wyeth. I love that painting.

  9. Those are three great photos, perfectly posed. What a great guy your new cat is!

  10. Love this! Cat understand the importance of "performance" - seems quite proud of himself (herself?).

  11. I love Cat. Another cat thing that amazes me ~ they know when you've put anything someplace it wasn't before, even if you smuggle it there and it's out of their field of vision in normal circumstances. I suspect they have inbuilt MRIs of some kind ...

    1. I think cats just like to jack w/our brains.. Mine knows if the food is not quite centered in the bowl!. On top of that, she's very ocd w/other things too long to list here.

  12. Hmm, I wonder what Cat could do with one of my Shell Sherree originals.

  13. My wall hangings are fabric assemblages which I create on the floor. One time the late Sasquatch [Rubio's brother], in a fit of pique, dragged in a rug, an assortment of other fabric items, layered them carefully and topped it off with a bit of fake fur. All was left in the middle of the studio for me to find on my return from the resented trip.

    1. Doris, I love that story. Sasquatch had a fine creative imagination. Most cats just poo in the bathtub when they're mad.

      Delete
    2. Sasquatch aside, Doris makes art, beautiful art. And I will feature it sometime soon, if she's willing.

      But let me also say something about Shit versus Poo or Poop, because it's 100 degrees outside and I'm easily irritated. I don't understand why Shit is a bad word, and Poo isn't. Shit sounds like a Lincoln log you can pick up, in its entirety, with a paper towel. Poo sounds like melted excrement. Poo grosses me out. Shit doesn't.

    3. To me, poo is a funny word. Shit means we're taking shit seriously. We probably just had different English teachers.

    4. Oh, not targeted (that sounds wrong) to you. It's what I hear on the radio -- This American Life and so forth. They say Poo; Shit is apparently one of those words that would get bleeped or fined.

      Delete
    5. Yes. There's a list of words you can't say on public radio or TV, or network TV. For some reason, cable doesn't have to play by those rules. It's the FCC.

  14. Cat looks so pleased with her/his self!

  15. There's a type of art that uses existing pieces in a theme - Cat has good taste. That middle pic looks like a male expression. But why place labels? Cat is a liberated creature, free from antiquated ideals and confining standards. Has Cat been introduced to Dali yet?

  16. Only until you start carrying Cat around in a Louis Vuitton oversize handbag. [Note to all: If I disappear it will be because Karin has let out a contract on me for that one. Look for my remains in Eaton Canyon.]

    1. I saw a shoe. Are you size 5?

  17. Cat has excellent taste in art, the Wyeths being from Maine and all famous, though I don't know that I've seen a Wyeth presented quite this way before. I like it!
