Here’s a new painting for my Heni’s Happy Painting Etsy shop. Earlier in the summer I painted The Brothers of our cats Tuxie and Truffle. I then thought I’d like to paint our other cat, Tiggy who passed away a few years ago. With the warm summer weather I was also thinking about painting a mermaid in an underwater scene. I put these two ideas together and created Mer-Cat.
Back in May when I had my show at the Phoenix and Dragon bookstore, Candice, the owner mentioned that they have an art show in October where they have paintings of cats from various local artists which is another reason why I’ve done these cat paintings. The bookstore has three cats that live there full time. When I set up my show, they all came into the gallery to hang out with me. It was very sweet. There are many pet oriented gifts in the shop and I’ve bought some cat gifts for my daughter there.
My daughter has been in Prague now for just over a week, it’s pretty quiet around here, I think our kitties are missing her and all her loving attention. Enjoy the rest of the weekend!

What a concept!So adorable. I’ll bet he’s some mermaid’s favorite pet.
Thanks Melissa, a mermaid’s pet, that’s a fun thought!
Who’d have thought! A Mer-cat. Delightful idea. Someone was telling me recently about her cat who loves water and climbs willingly into the shower.
Thank you! I know, I thought it was a pretty silly idea since most cats hate water but like your friend’s cat I’ve seen videos on social media of cats enjoying themselves in water.
It’s a delightful, whimsical, creative idea!
