Cmyk the artist Cat, by the way... did you know...

  • Pet owners are less likely to suffer from depression than those without pets.
  • People with pets have lower blood pressure in stressful situations than those without pets.
  • Pet owners have lower triglyceride and cholesterol levels (indicators of heart disease) than those without pets.
  • Heart attack patients with pets survive longer than those without.
  • Pet owners over age 65 make 30 percent fewer visits to their doctors than those without pets.
  • While people with dogs often experience the greatest health benefits, a pet doesn’t necessarily have to be a dog or a cat. Even watching fish in an aquarium can help reduce muscle tension and lower pulse rate.

    This other article speaks in a more spiritual way about them and has some great insights on mythology: (link
So, I wanted to share a picture of our cat: this is Cmyk. We found her on the street and started to take her food. It was quite challenging just to get her trust and then to let us pet her. She's been with us a month and a few days. Everyday she see us pack and put on our jackets and she knows it's time to go to the atelier. She can run here, go over drawings, scratch a cloth board Lívio did specially for her and she's happy. Sometimes she's sleeping like this in our lap and it's adorable to be "pet by the cat" in such way. And when she purrs we melt down :)
So, I have to let you know those articles saying "cats are holistic healers" ... it's true.
