"I'm The Cat That Got The Cream"...


"And I've also got a flower in my mouth."

"I'd rather have a mouse, I think."

Today's featured find is yet another original painting I fell in love with at first sight. This fabulous cat was prowling around on the floor at the Waste Management store, begging to come home with me. For one dollar, I was more than happy to oblige. I think it's probably from the 60's or 70's and I LOVE it. So colorful, quirky, cute and cool!
( Tina's comment suggested that I include the name of the artist! I apologize for neglecting to do so. The signature is D. Elliott.
D. Elliott - whoever and wherever you are, I thank you for painting this wonderful cat that I was so happy to find!)
I'm pretty sure my Dizzy Kitty doesn't mind that he came home with me.

"I'm the cat that got the cream. Haven't got a girl, but I can dream. Haven't got a girl, but I can wish. So I take me down to Main Street, and that's where I select my imaginary dish..." From the song "Standing On The Corner" (Watching All The Girls Go By).

I love it! I can't make out the signature, but it looks like there is one. Can you give the artist a credit? Love T

Oh, yes, you're right, Tina! I should have done that. The artist's signature reads D. Elliott.
