Our Lovely Kitten Taraji - on the October Cover of REAL SIMPLE
Who is that Gorgeous kitten on the cover of REAL SIMPLE magazine?
We have been hearing that question ever since our Taraji (Star Academy's Taraji P Henson of Caricature) made her advertising debut on the cover of the October issue of REAL SIMPLE magazine, popping out of a real pumpkin. Taraji is a lively kitten, very affectionate, very full of herself and poised. At the photographic shoot for the cover, Tarajji spent a good half hour in that pumpkin happily sitting there while they posed her, had her with her paws outside, with her tail threaded through the Jack o'Lantern's mouth or eyes. She enjoyed it all, and you can see from the photo that this particular genuine American Black Cat (Bombay) represented had a ball. So did we!

NINE LIVES by Kenneth Willardt, NY
We spent several months working with New York photographer Kenneth Willardt and lovely plus-size model Robyn Lawley on a series of art photographs. This one, entitled 'Nine Lives', features a number of Caricature Bombays and Burmese. It was a wonderful experience, and our cats enjoyed working with the lights and the people.

All About Showing...
Here at Caricature, we show our cats regularly. In the course of showing, our cats learn to be calm amid bustle and noise, to trust people, to lose their shyness. They are beautiful, and we love sharing that beauty with spectators, and we have made good friends over the years at shows. Often, people come to shows to learn about the different breeds, or just to look at the pretty cats. There is lots to see and do at a show; come look at the world of showing!
