Hi! Welcome to Considerate Cat Tarot.

Considerate Cat Tarot is a 78 card Tarot deck inspired by and featuring Cats. I have spent the last year dedicated to creating this deck. Each card features a different cat or some element of cat behavior or symbolism.

I started this project one year ago, today (March 4th). The original intention of this project was something that was just going to be for myself. I wanted to see if I could complete something of this size, from start to finish. I also loved the idea of creating a Tarot deck for my personal use with artwork and images that were visually appealing to me.

Since the start this project has grown incredibly and I want to share it with all of you. I am running this Kickstarter to allow to have the project published. A few months ago I attempted to submit to a publisher and was turned down. Although initially sad and discouraged, I realized that self publishing gives me 100% of the control over the deck and now that it’s happening this way I’m grateful that this is the route I am taking.

 The deck is all illustrated with traditional tarot in mind: Major Cards, Cups, Wands, Swords and Pentacles with each card featuring a different cat or some sort of cat element. Many of the cards focus on a real rescue cat with a story to tell. You can read all about these cats here: https://consideratecat.com/meet-the-cats-of-the-deck/

 I've always been focused on details, I think it's the details that make people come back to something over and over and over again. When looking at my cards, I hope that the reader will see something new every time and that they will pull their own meanings out of the details.

 The cards themselves will measure 70x120mm and be printed on heavy weighted linen cardstock. The deck will come in a two piece ridged tarot box with a small ribbon on the inside.

 Thank you so much for reading about my project. I hope you will consider supporting Considerate Cat Tarot by one of the reward tiers. Please do contact me with any questions, concerns, comments or just to say hi!

Risks and challenges

- The main risk of this project is collecting the funds that will allow me to publish the deck. I have allocated a month to allow for production after the project is complete. I have a printer lined up, ready to go should to kickstarter campaign be fulfilled.

-The artwork is largely completed and will finish by the end of the 30 days. I am still "tweaking" many things on the cards.

-Should there be any delays in production, shipping or anything else on the matter I will communicate it fully.
