Bonjour boys and girls and cats too, of course!
Our Leader, Momma Kat (sounds like the Mamas and Papas?) asked me to come up with an idea for a new Group mailing.
Here it is.
It is called 'CATplus'.*
It works like this. You have to compose a Mail Art piece that combines two things:
i) an image of a cat, or cats or something feline. This is the 'CAT' element of the mailing.
ii) another object that is linked to a cat in the form of a word. This is the 'plus' element of the mailing.
Here are some examples of 'CATplus' words (and you can find others in a dictionary):
and so on and so forth.
This is how I suggest the 'CATplus' mailing works:
A) everyone is invited to join in
B) those who decide to do so must select their 'CATplus' word, and
C) inform the person who is responsible for the Mailing list (not me, 'cos I had the idea),
D) and then we will all send each other our 'CATplus' piece which is to be mailed on or before 1 September, 2011.
That's the 'CATplus' concept. Suggestions to change it are very welcome.
I hope you will join in.

* there are also 'CATminus' words  -- such as tomCAT, musCAT, sCAT, bobCAT etc -- but I don't think these are so interesting, and we don't really need to include them, me thinks

PS If the other Cat Group is still in existence should we invite it's members to join in???

Well so many interesting CATWORDS in the dict but of course difficult to create many artworks with. So I decided to choose CAT'S PAW which seems to inspire me some humorous things, literally or figuratively. Im in.

Nice to see Roberto and Kemal joining us :-) X

Merhaba Kemal! Cat'sPaw is good! I also like Roberto's CAThedral!Yes!

And I think last day to join is officially August 15th.

So let's see how many more want to do a CAT thang?

Sorry Cat people...   I've suddenly got a lot of things on my plate and I won't be able to do the mailing list for this project.  I won't even be able to participate.   I don't even have time to catch up with any of the other groups I follow.  Maybe in the fall.....


Have fun with this one,


i will do it.

my email is in my profile page.

Thank you so much!  And thanks for the mailing rec'd last week.  I'll be sending something along for that one...

just will someone let me know what we're doing??

are we each sending a piece to everyone else?

are we doing linked list style?

(one person sends to someone, that person sends to someone else, etc, so we all get one from someone else?)


did val even specify??

and i think we should at least all send val something so he feels bad for not participating!!! ;-D
Bonsoir! My original idea was that everyone would send something to everyone else (as we did for last year's International Cat Day mailing). It was a suggestion, and only a suggestion. As it's a CATocracy you can change it if you like -- all I can ay on this is that everyone lust be clear what 'the rules of the game' are.. But PLEASE DON'T include me in the mailing: as I said earlier I appreciate the gesture, but will be unable to recipricotae properly (if at all) and will get my kicks on route 66 by watching you all have fun. Regards, JE Sweefoo

Thanks, Val, your wishes will be respected, as you will be overloaded getting your exhibit"365" ready. Best of success , dear boy! And we will not send you CATplus mail so you don't feel obliged. We should send a CATplus card to everyone who will be on the mailing list, I think eepy is working on that and Angie and Snooky Dog are helping.
