Caturday Cards - Fluffy Fears Flying and more!

Meow everyone! Fluffy here!

Lots has been going on over here at My Friend Fluffy. Mostly, we've been working on adding weekly features to our blog. (You may have noticed our first Cat News Friday post yesterday!) In addition to this new weekly feature, we have also decided to introduce a day called Caturday Cards! The idea is that, every Saturday, we will post our newest card designs and the story behind them, with the hope of receiving your valued feedback! 

What is more, a random draw will be held from the comments we receive on the first Saturday of every month. The person (or cat!) who's comment is chosen will win a free greeting card of their choice from My Friend Fluffy's online store!

Seeing as today is the first 'Caturday' of September, the very first draw will be held today! (So exciting...mew!) We look forward to receiving your comments and critiques!


I know, I know. A cat who suffers from vertigo is about as paradoxical as a dog who hates belly rubs. But I'm not your average cat! In this card, I am not only quivering at the prospect of the long drop below, but I'm also feeling a little airsick as well. I think I'll sign up for a different job - perhaps in cat-ering, or as a mew-sician?


This birthday card features my buddy Oliver who, with his Atlas-like strength, has lifted a massive fishbowl over his head and caused all the delicious little fishies to fly out of it. I suppose chasing squirrels and birds up trees, and plucking fish out of streams was getting rather unoriginal!


When I got married to my dear cat wife, Molly, Heather drew this purr-fect portrait of us as she threw her bouquet to her three bridesmaids. Don't I look handsome in my top hat and tux? :D


Okay. So, I'm as obsessed with my own reflection as the next cat. However, when my reflected self starts playing Halloween pranks on me, that's where I draw the line! (And that scary jack-o-lantern doesn't help one bit!)

Don't forget to comment to have the chance to win a free greeting card! :-)

The cards are all lovely but we especially like the Halloween one!

We love all your cards Fluffy but our favourite is the Halloween card with the cat clinging on to the witch's broom for dear life - that's pretty much how we feel when mum puts us in the car for a trip to the dreaded (whispers)v-e-t
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

We are trying to decide which is our fav! We love the wedding one! Who doesnt love cats in clothes?? But we love how the halloween one has the kitties hair all fluffed up and he has a little x for his behind *blushes* hehehehe

Well you flying was funny and had us MOL. We loved Oliver holding the fish tank over his head and dreamed of eating the fishes that were flying out. The wedding one was our favorite. The Halloween one kinda scared us. We wonder what if when we look in Mommy's mirror the cat that hides in there does that to US?

Father Tom said...

Fluffy shows his purrsonality in each one of the cards and I wouldn't know how to choose my favorite since I love them all!

When I look in the mirror, I don't get worried, but for Halloween, I think I'll avoid them altogether! hehehe
