5 is a Very Important Age!

 It's me, mama Gaia.  Today is a very important day for my son, Chester.  He is 5 years old today!  I can remember that day, just like it was yesterday....

Chester, and his siblings, 5 years ago! 

Mama Gaia:  Happy birthday, son!
Chester:  Thank you, mama!

For my birthday, mom got me a back of fun toys from the Cat Connection.  I was super excited, but even though it was MY birthday, I shared with EveryCat.  

Charli:  It's time to PAW-TAY!

CocoBean:  Whoo-weee!  This is some strong Nip!

Chester:  Armani says that pink IS for ManCats.  He says as long as we are comfortable in our ManCatliness, then pink rocks!

JB:  It sure was a long time ago, when I was 5.  

Enjoying a little Nip cigar on my birthday!

Some meelk for my birthday breakfast!

I am 5 years old today.  5 is a very important age.

We Got a Play Rug!

 Mom has been worried that we will scratch our new wood floors when we play, so we got a new play rug!

The delivery came and mom unwrapped the rug, and it smelled fantastic, like it was made of catnip!

 We all had to smell it and rub our furs all over it! 

 Mom finally made us get off of it.  She said she had to move it to the family room, where she promised to play with us on it in the evenings.

Sheesh, Armani, must you let it all hang out on the new rug while wrapped in tissue paper ?

We love our new play rug.  Now we just have to get mom to play with us more! 
You promised, mom!

Sniffing and Looking!

 Armani: Gaia is just so beautiful.

 Armani: I like to look at her and sniff her.

 Gaia: Stop looking at me and definitely stop sniffing me!

 Gaia: Just stop!

Armani: I just can't stop.  I have to sniff and look at the beautiful Gaia every day!
Gaia: **SIGH**  Mom, please make him stop!

Our Beautiful Painting!

 Mom has wanted to get a painting commissioned of the 6 of us for some time, and she just did not know who to get to do it.  She came to know of a wonderful local artist, named Nancy Berkhouse, earlier this year. She even lives just about 3 minutes from us, and we never knew her before this!

The montage started with mom sharing a whole bunch of photos of us with Nancy, so she could get to know us and start planning the placement of each cat.  It's one thing, doing a painting of one cat, but 6 cats?  That was a big undertaking!

The painting took a couple of months to complete, and we could not wait to see the finished montage.  Once we saw it, we could not stop looking at it.  The detail is wonderful and Nancy captured our expressions to show our true purrsonalities!

Mom did not have any idea how the painting would like till she actually saw it finished.  The interesting thing about this, is that the painting has an amazing similarity to the artwork of one of mom's favorite Dutch artists, Henriette Ronner-Knip!  Henriette lived from 1821 - 1900, and her paintings sell at auction for up to the hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Our painting is much more special than any of that artist's works, because it is a painting of us.

 We love our montage!  
Thank you to Julie Berkhouse for introducing your mom to our mom, so we could have this fantastic painting created!

Nancy Berkhouse welcomes commissions, and we highly recommend her for your own pets or children's portraits.  Mom saw some of her work at her home, and her artistry is beautiful in person.  Nancy's website is here if you want to see some of her work:  http://www.naberkart.com/

I'm an Executive!

 I'm an Executive, and I help mom with her work every day.  I am her Executive Manager.

Stretching is important for being an effective Executive.

Many trips to the washroom are necessary too.

The work of an Executive is very busy and exhausting.  It is time for this Executive to take another nap now.

No slacking off while I am snoozing, mom!
