I Has A Cat Wishes You A Happy New Year!

Should old acquaintance be forgot,
and never brought to mind?
Should old acquaintance be forgot,
and old lang syne?

CHORUS:
For auld lang syne, my dear,
for auld lang syne,
we’ll take a cup of kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.

And surely you’ll buy your pint cup!
and surely I’ll buy mine!
And we’ll take a cup o’ kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.

CHORUS

We two have run about the slopes,
and picked the daisies fine;
But we’ve wandered many a weary foot,
since auld lang syne.

CHORUS

We two have paddled in the stream,
from morning sun till dine;
But seas between us broad have roared
since auld lang syne.

CHORUS

And there’s a hand my trusty friend!
And give us a hand o’ thine!
And we’ll take a right good-will draught,
for auld lang syne.

CHORUS

Pierre Carrier Balleuse, Young Ballerina Holding Black Cat

PIERRE CARRIER-BELLEUSE (1851-1931) studied at l’Ecole des Beaux-Arts and made his debut at the Salon in 1875.  The son of the pre-eminent sculptor Albert Carrier-Belleuse,  Pierre showed promise from a young age. He was as adept in the medium of pastels (a very difficult medium to master), as he was with oils. In 1877 he received Honorable Mention for his work, and in 1899 he received a Silver Medal at the Exposition Universelle.

Andy Warhol’s Cat Named Sam

23 Dec

Image

This Andy Warhol illustration dates to the 1950s and relates to a larger book of lithographs he created titled 25 Cats Named Sam and One Blue Pussy. Warhol made the drawing while he was still working as a commercial illustrator, and it is a fascinating pre-cursor to his later Pop Art output. The artist’s passion for cats (he is rumored to have kept as many as twenty-five in his Manhattan apartment) is lovingly communicated through this expressive hand-colored feline.

Yawning Cats

Like a cat asleep on a chair
at peace, in peace
and at one with the master of the house, with the
mistress
at home, at home in the house of the living,
sleeping on the hearth, and yawning before the fire.

Cats Sleep Anywhere

Cats sleep anywhere, any table, any chair.
Top of piano, window-ledge, in the middle, on the edge.
Open draw, empty shoe, anybody’s lap will do.
Fitted in a cardboard box, in the cupboard with your frocks.
Anywhere! They don’t care! Cats sleep anywhere.
