Big-Eyed Kitties Say Howdy

Does anyone remember those paintings of big-eyed dogs, cats, and children that were popular in the 1960s, possibly into the very early 70s? I wanted to get the cat paintings, spending hours actually daydreaming about it, but the closest I got was cutting out the ad in the back of Ladies Home Journal and taping it inside a drawer. I had no idea those paintings were considered hideously kitschy. I found them very elegant.

These vintage images are clearly the precursors to the those later groovy designs. Since finding this image, I have found two others featuring saucer-eyed felines.

    I only remember the big eyed children, and truth is they kinda freaked me out. The kitties I like!

    What is this about an accident? Darn - I missed something. Glad to hear that everything, well, except the car, is okay!

    I must've lived on the moon, because I don't remember seeing those cats before - or if I did, I don't remember...they are cute, though.

    Hope you'll have a good day, m'lady, and let's hope the electricity will hold out or else we'll just dip ourselves in oil and fry...

    With love,
    Doris and the furbabies :-)

    To beat the heat I made a cooling drink with mango pulp, fresh mint and sugar.

    But of course I love big eyed kitties, and lost kitties and fluffy kitties, so long as they belong to someone else. My cat, will be my last cat. And just to spite me I know he will out live me...damnable beast. But these kitties are cuties.
    I can't believe the heat ya'll have had. whew, chilled drinks all around huh?
