Original Watercolor of Your Cat Giveaway

Hello dear ones. It’s your one-of-a-kind black cat Clyde with a fab giveaway.



 You know that expression: Be original, everyone else is taken? Cats don’t need reminders to be themselves. We are original and there is nothing better. That applies to art too. The best print or photograph in the world does not compare to an original painting. Original art contains an intangible soul you can feel when you see it and hold it. The magic is in every brushstroke. Wouldn’t you love a soulful, original painting of your cat?  I’ve been immortalized in watercolor by U.K. based artist Mi-Ha and your cat could be too!

 The original watercolor is winging its way across the pond as we speak. This is kind of what it looks like. She captured my cute devil-horn ears purrfectly, don’t you think? Layla sent a few photos to the artist. We discussed my personality and other details. I can’t wait to see the original.

Meanwhile, we’re having a quick giveaway. The winner will be announced here next Monday. But why wait? You could snap up an original for the price of a print for a limited time. She’s young, talented and just starting out. I found her very professional, polite and easy to work with. If you have any questions, message her on Instagram at @Amber_Blackberry. Mi-Ha will be setting up her Etsy shop soon but you can check out examples of her work now. Amber and Blackberry, her black cats can be seen posing with their portraits. It gives a sense of the size and style of her art.

  1. If we won, we’d like to have a portrait painted of Sweet Praline. Mom Paula has portraits of her first cat and of us, but nothing of Praline.

    We’d love you to consider contributing some photos for the 2018 Cat Blogging Calendar.,

  2. Mi-Ha is furry talented!

    While I now have plenty of memorabilia for dear Angel Minko, Including a painting…I would love another to hang up in a different room…maybe it will help me not miss him so horribly…cause I could look up to him and ‘talk’ with him that way…

  3. Hey there, Clyde! Thanks for sharing with us about Mi-Ha and her wonderful watercolors. We would love to get a painting of Zoe or Gracie, who are housepanthers like you. It would be great to see what essence of their personalities Mi-Ha captures. Hugs to you and Layla!

  4. II would absolutely LOVE to have a portrait of the Queen! (Penelope that is). Yes, I do paint, and yes, I do portraits but every artist dips his brush in his own soul and paints their own nature into their pictures!
    She will see things in Penelope that I do not and for that I would be eternally grateful!
    Love Barb

  5. Original artwork is a most special thing to have as a gift……one thing I was never able to “master” as an artist was the ability to capture personality of humans and animals in my work – this painting of Clyde does that I think quite beautifully! I would love to have an original portrait of Angel Sammy – while Teddy has filled my heart again, Sammy fills my mind with memories. Thanks for the opportunity Layla!

    Hugs, Pam

  6. I would like a portrait of my cat Cali. She went to the Bridge and we miss her very much.

  7. I would love to have a picture of my special boy who passed away many years ago. I have a special picture of him that I would love to have as a pet portrait. Thank you for this opportunity to win.

  8. There are so many cats I could want a portrait of but I have one of my beloved Tan’na already that was drawn by me many years ago… back when my hands were still steady. I wish everyone else the best of luck so am here just to say how stunning Clyde is.

  9. Hi, This is Finnegan, also known as ‘Mr. Greedy Guts’ to my fellow housemates which include 2 hoomans and four other cats. I would love to have my pet portrait done so Mummy can remember that I am the King of the House and all hers. Maybe then she would stop petting the other cats!

  10. Wow, that is an awesome watercolor! I’d like one of ME… but my human says maybe she would rather have one of… BINGA?! She says Binga is older and I already have art of me. Oh well, I GUESS I see her logic, but still.

    1. Shared on Facebook, and Pinterest. 🙂
      I forgot to include why I’d love an oil painting of Panky. All the cats in my life were black. I had 3 wonderful panfurs in the 80s. Had Dalmatians from 1996-2011. Panky appeared in my life just before Cherie the Dal left for the Rainbow Bridge.

  11. Sweet! Clyde we think the painting will be absolutely gorgeous!
    We would have a hard time picking out who to have painted but it would be a great pleasure to have the honor of doing so.
    Skeeter and Izzy and the Feral Gang + Twig & Peanut & Romeo & the Angels >^..^^..^<~

  12. Wow, what an incredible, incredible deal. And honor. You are the best, Layla. Mao would love it, as he is now in ATL with daughter, and he misses Ched.

  13. I would have a watercolor of our Cracker Jack. He is a rescue who we refer to as our prize in a box. He is one of the most striking cats you would ever lay your eyes on. He is a black Persian mix and just stunning with his silky black coat and yellow eyes. He is one of 8 in our household and one of a rainbow of colors we have. All are rescues and loved dearly.

  14. I have 3 cats , so it’s hard to choose which one will be painted. I would like to have a portrait of my cat , Ryder, because I have the most pictures of her.

  15. I would absolutely love to have my beautiful black kitty cat J.J. in a painting on my wall. He died in May 2016 and I have missed him every day since. I was lucky to have spent 10 special years with him and look back on those years with a smile on my face.

    1. I forgot to mention this in our post how commissioning a pet portrait before or after a death is a special memorial keepsake. I’m sorry for your loss. I also lost our beloved cat Merlin in May 2016.
