Our friend Kinsey posted this photo to the “This Cat is PHOTOSHOPPED” facebook group and asked to have Paulo wearing a mask.
Welp. That was easy. Then I had an idea.
LOL why not, right?
But then I got the idea to put my Singapura mask on Paulo.
Pretty cute, eh? Then…Kinsey asked for Paulo to be dressed up in a tux for prom.
Considering I already have the perfect cat-sized tuxedo bib and tie, top hat, and cuffs with cufflinks…not a hard ask.
The shadows are already perfect, too. This was fun.
So, you know that Singapura artwork Singapura illustration I was working on?
Well, today I finished it! And it is of Izaak’s niece, Noodle, the paddleboarding Singapura.
This is the final version. I’m pretty proud of it. What do you think?
In one of my Facebook Singapura groups, someone recently posted this cartoon of Picky Chicken, the famous Singapura wearing a dishtowel.
Turns out the artist, TactoonCAT, has an Instagram account and draws cartoons based on well-known internet cats. They’re amazing, you should check them out!
This really awesome video of a Singapura paddle boarding with her human in the UK popped up on Facebook yesterday. Noodle and her human, Nigel, go paddle boarding regularly on rivers in Essex and Sussex. They even have an Instagram page.
But as cool as this story is, it gets cooler. Noodle (Singaneko Artemis) comes from a British cattery, and her father is Bakardi Minimali*PL (“Keiko”). Kinsey, the breeder, has also written two children’s books about Keiko and his littermate brother Paolo (Bolt Minimali*PL). I discovered – and bought – these books last year after we got Logan, delighted to find any books starring Singas.
Of course, you know that our Izaak also comes from Minimali*PL. But if you look at Paolo’s, Keiko’s and Zak’s pedigrees, you’ll find that all three boys’ parents are Tinytoy Rus Mafoj*PL (father) and Angelina Minimali*PL (mother)…so Zak is Paolo and Keiko’s full brother, and Noodle is his neice! Paolo and Keiko are three years older than Zak…but how amazing is it to discover that Zak’s brothers are children’s book stars!? And his neice is a famous paddle boarder!? I guess Zak has a lot to live up to.

It’s not often you find a news story about a Singapura, but back in 2013 a Singa kitten in London named Bruce Lee managed to dial 999 and summon the police.
Next they’ll be wanting their own iPhones.
One of my favourite time-wasters, Bored Panda, posted a hilarious video of a Japanese Singapura named Malt dragging his favourite toy around the house. This just shows how “small but mighty” Singas are.
You can see more photos of Malt on his Instagram page.
Last week, Catster Magazine published “11 Reasons to Sing the Singapura’s Praises” and it’s really a nice little list. Check it out!
