Artsy Catsy

When Mom started blogging on the Cat Blogosphere, it was really an act of love. She wanted to tell the world about us wonderful kittehs (naturally), and help rescue other shelter kitties like us.

But Mom says that one of the most wonderful and surprising things about writing The Cheezits for us is all the great people she has met. There are just so many caring beans out there!

And she wanted to tell you all about one of them today: Sharolyn, the resident artist and human over at Artsy Catsy.

Artsy Catsy, if you haven't been there, is the purrfect place to buy any cards and stationery, because so many of the products are inspired by kittehs!

The kitteh cards are our favorites. Besides being really beautiful (how could they be anything else, with kittehs for inspurration?), the cards are full of fun puns and funny captions.

For example, Sharolyn has cute graphics with kittehs climbing up walls and leaving pawprints behind (the inside caption reads, "My prints has come"), and a kitteh hanging desperately onto sumfin' (we know that feeling!) with, "Hang onto your pawsitive cattitude!" inside. Which is a furry good message for all of us kittehs and our beans when we have problems like feeling icky from eating too many bugs or sneezing and sniffling or not wanting to eat at all, like poor Felix right now!

One of the biggest greeting card companies in the US, Recycled Paper Greetings, even offered to buy Artsy Catsy's designs, but Sharolyn wanted to market them herself.

And you should be furry glad she does, because every time an Artsy Catsy design sells, Sharolyn donates 20% of the proceeds to places like The Rescue Farm and Cat Friends Helping Friends, in addition the first copy of each new design to CFHF for raffles and auctions to raise funds, with one per month every month for the rest of this year!

So please go get your bean and whap at them or give them the cute kitten face until they check out Artsy Catsy! Once they do, we know they'll want some of Sharolyn's cards to give to all their bean friends.

And thanks, Sharolyn, for helping kittehs with your purrfect designs!
