Cat Artist Back by Popular Demand! Gracey’s Gallery is Open.

Gracey the Cat ArtistWelcome Friends to my art exhibit.

I am Gracey, The Tiniest Tiger and the artist.  When I unveiled by first painting, A Cat Artist’s Interpretation of an Amur Tiger, created on my iPad using Paint for Cats, I was overwhelmed by the compliments and offers to purchase my work. I appreciated your kind words and worked hard to create more works of art to show you.  My first art exhibit’s success motivated me to keep painting and sharing my interpretation of the world around us.

Creating art requires patience, planning, observational skills, bursts of inspiration and lots of thinking.  These are all cat characteristics aren’t they?   I took my time in selecting just the right color combinations to convey my interpretation of what inspired me and then unleashed my creative energy  to get the paint on the canvas.

I hope you enjoy my paintings.  If you have any questions or comments please feel free to ask and share.  Thank you for visiting.

Welcome to Gracey’s Gallery!

Start Treating Your Cat Like a Dog! Temptations Giveaway

Cats deserve treats too!

Did you know that dog owners are twice as likely to treat their dogs than cat owners?  Because dogs are bigger babies,Temptations Cat Treats are for Cats! I mean are not as independent as cats, many pet parents are so preoccupied with the  whiny canines that they don’t even get time to think about treating the cats!

Well, we cats say no more! Just because we cats are like the A student that always brings home a perfect report card without having to study doesn’t mean we don’t like attention. We understand the dogs require lots of tutoring just to get along but that doesn’t make it ok to take the cats for granted. We like attention too even if we don’t always drool and beg for it.

It is time  as a pet parent you start treating your cat like a dog!

Cats like treats too.

Did you know that Temptations® Treats for cats are the leading cat treat on the market? They come in a wide variety of types and flavors too so even the most discriminating feline  palate will find one that they will enjoy.

King Given Royal Tribute by Younger Lions

Even if crowned the king of the forest, a lion’s life is anything but pampered. In addition to loss of habitat, conflicts with humans, and being a target of trophy hunters, the male lion must defend his territory from  younger lions on the prowl to establish their own kingdom. While the females hunt, the male sleeps because it is his job to defend the pride from intruders. When a male lion grows older, he will no longer be able to protect his throne from the stronger males keen on forcing his abdication.  The older lion is often killed or forced to leave his home territory and pride.  The law of nature, circle of life is understood and accepted.

Cat is Young at Heart

Emily the cat is an Iams Play Young Stay Young Honorable Mention.

Emily is a much loved member of her family. She hasn’t slowed down in the twelve years since she came to live in her forever home.  As you can see in her photo below, she keeps a watch over the house to make sure she doesn’t miss any action.  The Iams team noticed Emily too and chose her  as the Iams Stay Young Play Young Honorable Mention Cat this week.

Beautiful Emily Is Young at Heart

Emily’s mom Roni,  from Spencer, WV says:

Emily is a calico. She runs, chases the dogs, and jumps on the table and the counter (even though she’s not supposed to), chases her tale, speeds out the door (again not allowed). She hasn’t slowed down since we got her, 12 years ago. She was an adult when we rescued her. She was abused by some children. She is disabled, but  that doesn’t even slow her down. She’s an amazing cat.  She has been with us longer than any animal that we have. I just don’t know what life would be like without Emmy. And  I don’t want to find out!
