Quint’s Holiday Lights.

The street my family lives on is beginning to look very pretty with bunches of sparkly holiday colors lighting up the evenings. Last year our dad talked to us about a giant scratchy post they used to put up in the livingroom every year around this time and how sparkly and pretty it was but that was before they got kittens. He showed me pictures and yep, it looked like a scratchy post all right. A green one with lots of colors.

So, I decided if we couldn’t have that scratchy post, I’d try to paint one. I let my Mom help guide me with the small colors. You know I have big painting paws.

She said sometimes using just one toe bean was better than an all over slopping wet paw to paint with, and I think she might be on to something there. I hope you like my result.

Anyhoo, I finished those up in no time because I had places to go and things to see and because yesterday’s painting was cutting into my nap time with my best friend and sister, Tessa. She saved a spot for me in our favorite nap spot. I love her for that!

  3. Quint, that photo of you and Tessa is just priceless. You can’t do better than having a best friend. Love your latest, too!

  4. Quint you are one in a million and super talented. Have a wonderful Wednesday.
    Best wishes Molly

  5. Quint, our Mom told us she used to have a big scratchy post with lots of lights and dangling things. Now that we’re here she doesn’t do that. We don’t understand why! It would be so much fun to play with those dangling things and all those shiny lights and stuff. We mentioned that to her and she said that’s exactly why she doesn’t put up the big scratchy post now. Humans are no fun!

  6. beautiful job quint! That’s catabulous!

  7. We are being extra respectful of the scratchy post that mom and dad put up… cause mom said something about a sandy mouse that knows which kitties play with the shiny balls on it. We ALL know it’s Tipp, he likes shiny things best!

    pee ess: you and Tessa look uber cute together mom says… we think she meant “super”, but forgots how to spell it…

  8. Fabulous! You are quite the artist!

  9. Quint, we have an artificial scratchy post, but a smaller one this year. So far we’ve actually been very good and whapped only two ornaments!

    We love your new piece, we think you’re incredibly talented!

  10. Mommy just loves your paintings. We think we are going to have to get these last two for her as our Christmas gift to her. Of course, we’ll let her pay for them. We’re nice that way. Quint, you and Tessa, are absolutely adorable together. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  11. We absolutely love your Holiday Lights painting. It’s so festive and cheerful!

  15. Oh, Quint, you’re so talented! We thought for a moment that your peeps were letting you paint standing directly on the counter with no protection on it, then we realized it was cardboard. We thought you were permanently painting the counter, too!

  16. Quint, your art is as gorgeous as ever! Our mom used to chop and put up 3 big scratching posts. Now she says she was crazy! We say it was special, cause there was one for almost all of us. Now we make do with a little one on the table. 🙁

  17. Quint, your holiday lights painting is beautiful! You have a great eye.

  18. Oh Quint, you rock! We love your art so much and theese one is beautiful! You deserve a good nap, buddy!
