Happy Caturday, furry friends! In celebration, here are some of Basil Farrow’s latest photos.
Since it’s winter, his already-thick Scottish Fold fur coat is getting even more fuzzy by the day.
Look at all those warm layers of fluff!
Winter bear. Basil always sits with his macaroon paws crossed.
Jenga, anyone? Looks like the mouse has the next move.
Basil likes to find cozy places to keep warm. He jumped into the clothing drawer…
… and used his big feet to dig a hole in the clothes! However, the space is a bit too small for him.
Better to curl up on the bed and zzzz.
Someone’s keeping a big yellow eye on you.
Another favorite resting place: his designer pet carrier case!
Where are we off to? Scottish Fold Basil Farrow has a big project coming up… we’ll reveal it to you very soon, so stay tuned.
Stay warm and happy holidays!
Looks like Basil has been cloned! How did I end up with two fuzzy-faces? Read on to find out.
We received a large package from artist Bitsy Knox. Basil Farrow couldn’t wait to look inside.
He seems to be saying, “Hurry up and open it!”
Fragile… what could it be?
Basil gives it a smell test. Doesn’t seem like there is anything yummy inside.
Maybe sitting on it will provide some clues?
Look at how the cardboard sinks under his weight!
Time to use his big paws to try to open the cardboard.
Inside, there’s a giant canvas enveloped by bubble wrap. My Scottish Fold immediately climbs on it.
He likes the texture of bubble wrapping, for some reason.
(Check out the sideways paws!)
Could this be a comfortable new cushion? Not quite…
I opened it up, while this curious cat kept watch. His triple-folded ears are so cute.
“Wahhh! It’s a portrait of me!”
Isn’t the resemblance uncanny? Basil’s round face, plush fur and short tail are perfectly rendered
Huge thanks to Bitsy Knox, a Canadian artist living and working in Berlin, for this adorable painting.
Her work can be seen at www.bitsyknox.com. If you are interested in having your cat or dog painted by Bitsy, please contact her via her website.
The photos speak for themselves… she’s so talented!
Love the blue contrast background, and the cut-out shape of the canvas.

Want to see my Scottish Fold cat in action? Here’s a new video of Basil exercising by jumping hurdles and going through tunnels. Isn’t he athletic?
Watch it above. With some creativity, you can make Scottish Folds do a workout!
Looks like I now have two cute cats… Wouldn’t you like a customized pet painting too? You can find out more and see other examples of Bitsy Knox’s work here.
Everyone says Basil Farrow looks like a baby lion cub..
… so it made sense to give him a royal crown, marked with a B!
Do you think he’d be a compassionate, cuddly ruler?
Here’s his attempt at being fierce.
Basil has a proud nature, the crown suits him well.
When we put it on his head, he let out a lion roar!
Or is it more of a yawn?
This squish-faced Scottish Fold was recently featured in China’s biggest fashion magazine, Ray Li.
He poses with La Carmina’s favorite beauty products by Paula’s Choice, the moisturizer and sunscreen.
We all love Wedderspoon manuka honey.
Here’s a scan of Ray Li – international beauty issue of the Chinese magazine, featuring La Carmina…
… and her smoosh faced cat in the top left corner!
Enough of the modeling, it’s time to give those big paws a lick,
and head to bed. zzz!
