The CatAWhack Crew is a creative brew that loves finding humans and animals that think outside of the box; stretch the imagination; and put their paws and hands into action to create magnificent works of art.
We discovered “Dear Janit…Some Letters I Wrote to My Cat” and found quick wit, short stories, and colorful illustrations that entertained our human and called up fond memories for us felines.
Here’s their story:
Crispin found an old notebook. It contained a series of letters he had written to his cat, Janit (sometimes she is also called Janet, sometimes Jane, sometimes Jan and occasionally Juanita). She is black and white and lazy and fat. These letters were written in a time before she was ’space hopper fat’ (as she is now) but was already displaying signs of acute laziness and nonchalance, back around the turn of the millennia. Then he started writing more letters and publishing them on his blog. His sister, Erica, began to illustrate them and they decided to give Janit a proper site of her very own… http://dearjanit.com. Things spiralled out of control and now she has her own Twitter @DearJanit<http://www.twitter.com/dearjanit> and her own Facebook page <http://www.facebook.com/dearjanit>. Goodness only knows what delusions of grandeur this will result in for her. Here is one of the letters... Dear Janit, Please find enclosed two pictures for your attention: - Picture A is a mouse (Mus musculus) - Picture B is a human big toe (mine) I am providing these as a resource for you to keep. Please feel free to refer to the pictures at any time, in particular the sort of time you feel like putting your claws into something. For clarity I have labelled the images thus: - A – Acceptable - B – Unacceptable I hope this helps Love from Crispin
