(Almost) Wordless Wednesday - Life Imitating Art :)


Cartoon art by Bernard Kliban. Real life by Merritt. Photobomb by Marshall. :)

Fun fact: Merritt, Marshall and Kliban were all born in Norwalk, Connecticut (home of PAWS)!

And more about handsome tuxie Marshall (and his brother, Hubbell) HERE.

This is really cute! Merrit did a good job of copying the cartoon. :) He's such a cutie. Not a bad photobomb in there either.

Mom loves the Kliban cat and has lots of t-shirts featuring him. We definitely see the resemblance in Merritt. We had no idea that Kliban began in Norwalk. Purrs and prayers to all the PAWS kitties, especially our lovely Swizzle. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

I have an apron that must be from the early 80's that has a Kliban cat playing a guitar and singing about loving to eat mousies! MOL!
