The World’s First Cat Museum

Canine Culture

Hi everyone, CEO Olivia here. Today I’ve sniffed out a short video that gives you a glimpse into a Cat Museum. This Cat Museum in Krakow, Poland is filled with cat-related artifacts. Started by a cat-loving Ukrainian couple in June 2019, the museum has an ever-growing collection of kitty-inspired nick-knacks & tchotchkes. The small museum is packed with cat related soap dispensers, teapots, snow globes, paintings, pillows, & figurines from around the world. Let’s take a look.

I bet a real cat would delight in knocking everything over in there. BOL!

Stay home & stay safe everyone.  #plankthecurve

Nora the Piano Cat

Canine Culture

Hi everyone, CEO Olivia reporting. I apawlogize for being a day behind. Since it’s Caturday, I asked my feline family members, Jerry Underfoot & Dottie to assist me today. They hunted the interwebs & discovered a rather amazing cat, who is a famous piano player.

Nora is a self confessed “Bossy” cat who was adopted from a shelter in New Jersey. Although she lives with other cats, she pawfers her own company. Her huMom is a piano teacher & after watching many students at the piano, Nora thought she’d give it a go. Her humans put a video of her playing piano on YouTube & it’s had over 6 million views to date. So more videos followed.

CATcerto was the brainchild of Lithuanian conductor, composer & artist Mindaugas Piečaitis. He had the idea to write a concerto inspired by Nora after he watched her videos on YouTube. The world premiere of CATcerto was performed by a Chamber Orchestra in the Klaipėda Concert Hall in Klaipėda (Lithuania) on 5th June, 2009. Mr. Piečaitis conducted, as Nora appeared as guest soloist via pre-recorded video projected onto a large screen behind the orchestra. It’s the first piece of music written for a cat.

The CATcerto has since been performed by orchestra’s all over the world. You can follow Nora on her Facebook page.

Have a pawsome weekend. Stay home & stay safe.

Artist  Marina Okhromenko

Hello one & all, CEO Olivia here. Today I have sniffed out some very colorful good dogs who are digital illustrations of artist Marina Okhromenko. Hoping to capture varying degrees of joy, devotion & adoration, the Moscow-based illustrator depicts dogs wearing different expressions, each distinguished through their eagerness & the intensity of their stares.

Okhromenko has a lifelong love for experimenting with color combinations. “As a child, my favorite toy was a kaleidoscope—you take and mix different colored pieces, and the result is always beautiful. A similar aesthetic in my work is my unique voice,” she said. You can sniff out more of Okhromenko’s vibrant projects on InstagramBehance.

I guess most two leggers will be home this weekend. Stay safe & wash your hands. We’ll get through this together.
