Does your cat have a story to share?
I'm hoping you'll tell me about someone Furry & Wonderful. I will be painting cats from around the world all next year, and I'm asking everyone to weigh in on their favorites. If you'd like to submit a story, yours may be chosen as one of the 12 Fresh Felines for next years' edition! Exciting!!
Why do I love to paint cats?
Because, when you live with a cat, they teach you things.
Such as: Take time for yourself, every day.
It's okay to rest.
Have good manners when you can.
And be patient, when it helps.
don’t be afraid to ask for what you want!
After all, it’s the heart that counts.
I've been painting my cat Petunia for quite a while, but she's had enough. Now I want to paint YOUR cats.
Does your cat have a story to share?
Join this project, and when you receive your Backer Survey, send along a photo and a story! (If you don't want to, that's okay, too).
ABOUT THE GOODIES
The 2018 Indigo Kitty Cat Calendar
The 2018 calendar is printed in the USA and features 12 full-color Indigo Kitties. Bound with paper twine and a wooden bead, these calendars are made with 100% natural materials, and fully recyclable! Yay.
Cut to the perfect size for any corner in your house, this calendar is sure to fit right in!
And if you need a little more color in your life, we've got that too!
Bonus Mini Prints!
As a huge Thank You for Your Awesomeness, Calendar Backers receive a FREE bonus print of your choosing! They are all signed as well, and come wrapped as a nifty gift. (But you can keep it for yourself…)
There are four choices to choose from:
Excellent for gifting (or for keeping for yourself), these 4"x4" Watercolor Kitties are printed in the USA and individually signed by the artist (that's me!). They also come packed in a plastic sleeve for safety.
And, just because I like you so so much, I am putting a surprise sticker in with every package. So hold on to your socks.
True Blue Kitties Cat-of-the-Month Club!
I will be painting year-round, and you (or anyone you'd like to sign up) can join along! Each month's newsletter includes Digital Downloads of the Freshest Felines.
If you have a specific portrait in mind, I'd love to help! An original watercolor artwork is a one-of-a-kind and painted with care. Each commission comes with a Skype or Phone consultation to discuss details, mounting and framing, and free packing and shipping.
I love to paint animals, especially ones with a special spirit. Less than a year ago, wonderful Kickstarter people just like you helped me get back on my feet. You can read about that here.
Now I’m moving my studio to France, and I’m looking for a project keep me painting through a chilly winter in a new place! If you have a cat to share, I wanna know!
After all, either you love cats, or you know someone who does.
If you can, please share this project with anyone who might have an interesting and furry friend I’d like to paint. Thanks!
Wishing you Peace & Kittens,

Risks and challenges
I have worked with my printer for eight previous editions, and so I am confident that the product will be of the highest quality. I have plenty of experience packaging and shipping art from running my online shop, and I hope to ship these lovely calendars and prints to you by December, without a hitch!
Most packages will ship First-Class, and come with a notification email and tracking for those overseas. If for some reason there is an issue with your reward, I will work with you until the problem is solved! Usually there's some funny business around the holidays, but I have buffered in enough time to make sure YOU get your GIFT. Which is the most important thing. :)Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
