Panther Prowl greeting card shows the true primal nature of the housecat as reflected in her shadow (card is available in single or 10-pack.). Photography model is Jewell, a neighbor-cat of mine who is a lot more friendly than she looks in this image. Jewell adores my dog, Puma, and rushes to greet him whenever we walk by, throwing herself at his feet and rolling in ecstasy. Most of the time Puma politely ignores her, but occasionally (I think when he thinks other dogs aren’t looking) he will give her a hello sniff. Panther Prowl also appears in the calendar series Cats: Urban Tigers. Shadow art was done by artist Alex Guillotte.
Adorable Yorkie Witch Dog is portrayed by Yorkshire Terrier Cody, who has a complete closet of outfits which he was patient enough to model for in A Yorkie for All Seasons Calendar, and for the greeting cards (available in single or 10-pack). For this sitting Cody gave the cow skull a nervous glance at first, but after that he sat like a pro for his portrait.
Ghosts at the Movies greeting card combines a photo that I took many years ago in a Boston cemetery with a really humorous poem inside by Dean Blehert. Cards are available in single or 10-pack. Another of Dean’s short poems appears on Lucy Cat from the calendar series Cats: Urban Tigers.
