Pop Your Pup...And Kitties Too!

I am unapologetically obsessed with cats, especially my own. From the days of keeping a package of photos in my purse to today when I can whip out my phone, nothing makes me happier than having a conversation with someone about kitties and having the opportunity to show off my adorable little Mudpie. She is a work of art in this proud cat mom's eyes, so the opportunity to turn my sweet girl into an actual work of art is one I just couldn't pass up.

I've often lamented how difficult it can be to find cat items with torties on them. Siamese, Persians, tabbies are plentiful, and on the rare occasion you do see a multi-colored cat on something it's generally a calico, not a tortie. So while my home has cat-related kitsch in just about every nook and cranny and pretty much every day I'm wearing at least one piece of clothing with a cat on it, my tortie passion must go unprofessed. (Except for on this blog, of course.)

So what's a cat mom to do but have something custom-made? Something with a generic cat on it is great, but something with your own cat on it is pure purrfection.

Pop Your Pup creates one-of-a-kind products of your pet in pop art, and the whole process couldn't be easier. When you visit their website you start by deciding if you want a shirt or wrapped canvas. After making your size selection you upload a favorite photo of your pet, and then the customization begins! Pop Your Pup has tons of choices for the background of your piece, from a wide variety of solid colors to flowers to pop culture slogans to fun themes like tacos, ice cream cones and candy skulls.

Once your selections have been made a link to your proof will be emailed to you within 1 business day. Crazy fast, right? Every order is created by an in-house artist with no photo filter apps or gimmicks. You work one on one with a real artist who will make your fur baby truly POP! Plus they offer unlimited revisions until you are 100% happy with your pop art! Products are not printed or shipped until it is viewed and approved by you. Once everything is finalized the printing teams goes to work and your order will be printed and shipped out within 1-2 business days from your approval.

My art started with a coral background which I thought would look great with Mudpie's colors, and it did, I just wasn't sure it was the best choice. I asked if it would be possible to try the purple, and since they offer 3 shades of purple they sent me her art done in all 3 shades! I went with the regular (as opposed to light or dark purple), the Pop Your Pup peeps started working their magic, and in no time at all a tracking number arrived in my inbox.

It was in no way planned, but my pieces showed up at my door on my birthday! Needless to say, it was the icing on the cake of a wonderful day. I'm pretty sure I caught Mudpie admiring herself when I unboxed the canvas (which was immediately hung in our living room), and I'm so excited by the thought of wearing my shirt out and getting that first compliment on it. How cool will it be to announce that the kitty I'm wearing is my very own baby girl!

If you're ready to proudly show off your fur baby on a shirt or hang her portrait on the wall, check out Pop Your Pup at their web page, Facebook and Instagram. I'm already contemplating another shirt using the candy skull background...
