14 July: Today is the birthday of the famous Austrian artist Gustav Klimt🎉🎨 Klimt's love for cats is legendary. 😻 One of the most beautiful portraits of Klimt shows the painter with a cat in his arms. A large number of cats were left to roam freely around the rooms of both his studios. Klimt was well aware that the cats caused chaos with his many sketches, and sometimes damaged them. This did not bother him in the slightest. 🐾 🖼
Arthur Roessler, an influential art writer and critic, gives a striking account of the cats' feral activity in Klimt's studio. He also talks about Klimt's relaxed response to this behavior: "Once, as I sat with Klimt and rummaged around in a heap of papers, surrounded by eight or ten meowing, purring cats, play fighting with each other, so much so that the rustling study sheets just went flying, I asked him, puzzled, why he tolerated such antics spoiling hundreds of the most beautiful drawings. With a smile, Klimt replied: 'No, my friend, even if they crumple and tear one or the other pieces of paper, it doesn't matter; they only pee on the others, and, you know, it makes the best fixing agent!'"😹

😺Let's help the animal helpers😺
We are seeking financial support for a person who takes care of 19 cats in the south of Tenerife, Spain, and who has few resources to meet the expenses this month. Several of these cats have special needs.
The objective is to raise €300 in order to cover the cost of food (normal and veterinary diets), flea and worm treatments, microchips (x3), litter, etc.
Shall we help these rescue furry friends and their caretaker?
