Wisdom of Cats

The wisdom of cats.. People have always suspected and cats have always known, that cats are wiser than people.

After having observed cats up close for over thirty years, and after having drawn cartoon strips about cats for years for my mother's little local paper, I began to draw these one-picture kitties with a message of wisdom. Cat wisdom, that is.

I'll introduce you to these wise cats here.


If anything, I have learned from cats that even in the most stressful of times there is always something you can do to feel better.

To nap. So easy. Just follow suit to benefit from this age old wisdom of cats:

Life is hard and then you nap.

aim high

Really - what is it about the human ambition of aiming higher all the time. And why do they have to leave home every day to do so? Why not stay at home and pet the cat?

So if you aim high, do it the cat way. Use the curtains.

cat and mouse

The idea for this little cartoon drawing came when my friend Sofia got a present from her cat. Namely a live mouse, brought to bed in the middle of the night. It sought refuge in Sofia's pyjamas and climbed up her leg. You may imagine the noise. Sofia's, not the mouse's.

The situation was resolved and I am sure Sofia got the message her cat intended to tell her: a mouse on the bed tells the cat loves you.

cat in trouble

I have seen this countless times. There is a crash or some other indication of a minor havoc or catastrophe. You run to save what ever is left to be saved.

And in the middle of the pieces (or unrolled toilet paper or fallen plant pots or half-eaten human food or...) sits a totally innocent cat with a "Whaddya know - who did that?" look.

And purring, of course.

cat meow

This is so true also. You have a crappy day. You're in a bad mood, decided that life is not worth living. Everyone annoys you. There's nothing decent on TV either.

You've faced the truth. Life sucks.

And then your cat comes to see what's the matter and noticing your bad mood meows lovingly. And suddenly you see there are good things in life, too.  (Like feeding the cat in question, if you cannot come up with anything else. Just ask the cat.)

cat in christmas tree

The best time of the year is Catmas. The Decorated Scratch Post Experience.

No cat owner needs to ask where this idea came from... A tree full of cat toys! How wonderful!

If you enjoy these little drawings of cat wisdom, and wish to spread the humor - you find these kitties in my Cafepress and Zazzle stores.  (It seems the "When in Trouble" and "Catmas" especially have raised some mirth. I am inclined to think the dog owners are buying those designs to cat-people...)

This book travels with the King Tut - Treasures of the Golden Pharaoh exhibition on his world tour of ten cities from March 2018 onwards

Tutankhamun: In My Own Hieroglyphs tells the story, for older children, of the life and afterlife of the famous young pharaoh in his own words. Tutankhamun tells us about the trouble he got into as a child in Akhenaten's palace in the new city of Akhetaten, and how he became a boy pharaoh. As we learn, his life changed a lot when he died as a teenager, and long years of boredom started in his tomb with only his pet monkey Fingers and his treasure for company. He did meet some of the Egyptian gods, of course, and had fun scaring off tomb robbers, but it was mostly rather dull. Then one day, some new and strange people, including a Mr. Howard Carter, arrived and began to take all the treasures out of his royal tomb. Fortunately, through the eyes of his beautiful golden mask, Tutankhamun, could have fun again traveling around the world

Mr Mummific

An ancient friend of mine, Mr Mummific dictated a book about how he became a mummy - and I was his scribe and artist. The book is available at Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk

On my other website www.ancientagypt101.com he continues his stories about life in ancient Egypt.

Another hilarious adventure for children with Mr Mummific, the mummy with attitude. He now tells the story of his mishaps, misunderstandings and misadventures as he leaves his tomb through the False Door to embark on the complicated and dangerous journey to the Afterlife aboard the magnificent Ship of Millions.
