weird cat art

i am a sucker for anything weird and cat-related, such as this 1978 print by carol travers-lummus, entitled "meum et tuum", presumable the cats' names?

he loves me... he loves me not?

the yard sale find of the day for $2: a brass clover-shaped pendant with a spinning wheel, offering 4 romantic options: it's a date, he loves me, the answer is no, he loves me not...

for a while now, i have inexplicably drawn to all sorts of animal prints. i even bought a pair of leopard trousers recently... and i could not pass up on these cute sneaker slip-ons from the old navy factory outlet. dalmatian? ocelot? giraffe? at $10, they will be my summer staple.
