Don't Trivialize Whimsy's Art.
Each week, we team up with our friends at The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals of Texas (SPCA of Texas) to showcase a different animal that's in need of a loving home. We'll check out the animal, learn about its personality, do a short “interview,” take some cute pictures and report back to you on our findings. If any of the animals shown are to your liking, remember: They need a loving home free from abuse, and you could be that person to help.
This week, we met Whimsy, a plump short-haired cat, who's nearly seven years old. He's currently up for adoption at the Dallas chapter of the SPCA of Texas (2400 Lone Star Drive; 214-742-7722). He's also neutered and up-to date with all vaccines. And he likes when his tummy is rubbed.
What kind of cat are you, Whimsy?
I'm a Russian blue, if you must be specific and label me. I don't like labels.
Do you have an occupation of any sort?
I've had a few odd jobs here and there, but my heart truly lies with my art. I consider myself an artist. That's my profession. I suppose, as a cat, my passion is misunderstood.
Wait, an artist? Really? What do you do? Paint? Draw?
I work with many forms of media. Currently, I have an art installation project where I rip up the fabric of gallery couches and leave dead birds in the museum.
Who is your favorite artist?
It's so hard to choose just one! I suppose I fancy the art of Albrecht Durer, Rembrandt and this orange tabby cat named Sparkles that lives in the kennel next door.
Last question: Give us a couple of words to describe your personality.
Inspiring and undaunted.
