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):
CATacomb
CATalogue
CATalyst
CATamaran
CATapult
CATechism
CATegory
CATerpillar
CAThedral
CAThode
CATholic
CATtle
CATwalk,
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???

Yay! Found ya awl. I'm in with "CATchup CATastrophe'!

(Be prepared to have a happy haptic card arrive in your mailbox...smelling good and tastey).

It will be postcard size format, yes? ;-)

Bonjour Mamma Kat! Any shape or size is OK: you get to choose. Regards Rumpy

WHO IS GOING TO ORGANISE THE MAILING LIST -- AND KEEP TRACK OF THE THEMES???

cos it ain't going to be me

So far we have:

* eepy (CAT???)

* chaosatlanta (CAT???)

* superhero (sCAT) [There's ALWAYS someone who does things differently. Not only has our favourite superhero come up with a CATminus word, but he is also now bombarding us with his potty training expertise.]

* Katerina (CATchup)

* Angie & Snookie (CATalogue. N.B. correct, that's to say British, spelling)

* Fleur Helsingor (CATtle)

* Ceryl Penn (CATerpillar, CATerwaul. Is that one or two? A CATerwauling CATerpillar perhaps?)

I think that's all. Over to one of you.

eepy: what is your CATword?

Regards, Rumpy Herman

what themes need keeping track of?

i like the paws. pause. there are 2 things that need to be done: first, to keep an up to date list of participants, and, close to the mailing date of 1 september, send out a list of all participants' postal addresses. second, to keep a list of who is doing what, eg superhero=sCAT, so that people know what's going on and don't choose a word that has already been miaoued for by someone else. i'm supremely confident that you and your zombies can manage to do this between you, and, if that is the case, you'll need to announce this on the CATplus discussion page. pause.

besides zombies, do you have a cat? paws

another thing: there is another iuoma cat group run by valerie d evangelistina (?). i've asked vde to pass the CATplus details on to her members, and perhaps they'll join in. pause

the end

 

Great fun idea, Val, I'm in, and I'll compile the list

if everyone sends their addresses and their words to me:

 

eepypost@gmail.com

 

Please put CAT in the subject line so I don't bleeeeeeep you

 

My word is CATatonic!

 

 


OK... zombie kitten is too cute!  I would like to have the word catacomb - so I can make zombie cats.

I'm in, my word is CATatonic!
