Hi everybuddy. I want to show you an early Christmas present we got. The lady with the yellow hair ordered one of Quint Cole’s (from the Colehaus Cats) final paintings. Yeah, Quint is a cat and he likes to paint.

Now for those of you who might not know about Quint, his humans learned that he actually liked to “paint” by smearing wet litter on walls and toothpaste on mirrors with his paws. They set up a studio and encouraged him to paint on heavy paper with kitty-safe paints. Over the past 5 years, Quint has sold or donated over 400 of his paintings. The proceeds of the sales were donated to help stray and feral cats. You can read more of Quint’s story HERE.

Sadly, the Colehaus family has recently fallen on some hard times, and Quint will be unable to paint anymore. We’re purring for them and hope things will get better so Quint can get back into the studio.

The lady with the yellow hair has wanted a Quint painting for some time, and when she learned that this group of paintings was going to be Quint’s last offering, she made sure she got one and has already framed it. This one is called “Soft Lights.” Quint’s inspiration for it was the lights on the Christmas tree. We can almost see the colors twinkling like real Christmas tree lights. It’s beautiful and we love it!
