At one point, I thought “funny business cards” would be fun, though I couldn’t imagine using many of them.
Then I had a class reunion, and I handed out many of these cards. They became business cards after all!
This is the last one I had made up. Dougy on the left; Andy on the right. I probably should have one made with a recent Andy photo.
Do you have your business card with a pet or pets on it?
Andy chased me down to get him some ‘nip…
…but first he hid in the bathroom because he thought that was where I was headed.
(Actually, I was headed to the cat tree by the dining room table so I could give Andy some good attention before we worked out what he really wanted.)
That is very valuable … here I also find some informative blogs related to small business consulting, which I share with you
Not sure how many people would wish to give me their business if Catorze were on my card … 🤣🤣🤣
If you used them in business, they probably would be considered inappropriate, but, as a retired person who doesn’t give a damn (LOL!) I find they are OK. In your case, you can decide for yourself. I did give one to a doctor once, and his card given in response was appropriate for a doctor. I had asked him initially, before I got my first cat, if it would be acceptable to have a pet, given my medical issues, and he’s the one who noted all I had to do was approach it with appropriate attention to hygiene. That is, wash your hands and don’t kiss them on the mouth. LOL!
Great cards! Andy’s “where is nip?” look is precious.
LOL! He gets really insistent when he wants me to pick him a couple ‘nip leaves for hios amusement!
Cats have ways when they want something, don’t they?
That’s a fact! Andy “pantomimes” his wishes sometimes and vocalizes them other times. For the most times, I can get his drift.
He hypnotizes you.
LOL! Apparently he uses some magic on me because it seems he always manages to get what he wants.
Sure – subliminal suggestions.
LOL! Hypnosis, maybe.
That is a nice business card. I do have some for 15andmeowing with my logo on it that has a cat. I like yours better though with real cats.
I think the photos of real cats is a good way to expose others to the nature and content of one’s blog. Also, our kitty girls and boys are so cute and photogenic!
Those cards are a great idea !
They are fun, they are relatively inexpensive, and they are a great way to expose new people to your blog!
Good idea for the card, Doug.
I like especially the two last photos: Andy is really awake! 🙂
Yes, I like that, too, Michel! Andy gets really excited in anticipation of the attention he’s about to get. For reasons strange to me, he likes the attention when he’s on top of that cat tree but hates it on the little end table. (Of course, he usually is trying to sleep on the end table, but not the cat tree!)
What a good idea! I’ve used business cards for a while, mostly to provide contact information to new acquaintances. My kids have told me however that paper cards are outdated, and if you really want to provide your name and phone number to someone, you pull out your phone and send them a text or AirDrop a “card” if you have an iPhone. (But when I do this with people in our age cohort, they always seem taken aback, like I just planted a virus in their phone!) That said, my kids and I are still talking about taking a family trip to Japan, where exchanging business cards at meetings and conventions is considered a formal rule of etiquette. I’ve been thinking of getting a new batch printed up, but I didn’t want anything too formal or corporate-looking. I don’t have a cat bearing my name, but people might enjoy knowing I have a furbaby at home.
(I can almost hear Sunny saying, “What? You’re going someplace again without ME? And you have the nerve to use my picture on your cards?”)
You know the Japanese love their cats! I’m sure a business card with a suitable photo of Sunny would be more than acceptable. Your kids are right about how information usually on business cards is exchanged these days, but in corporate America, the business card still has a place, as it is in the world of medicine, where my pulmonologist shared his business card with me when I handed him mine. In less formal associations, I suppose, sharing it with a text message would be a nice informal way of handling things.
I can Andy’s thoughts in those shots, Doug, Good ones.
Yeah, he is pretty expressive, something one doesn’t usually think about cats. Dogs are open books, but cats can be sometimes, too! Thanks for the comment, Gerry! It’s great to see you are managing to keep your amazing posts up, regardless of the struggles you deal with.
At times you catch Andy spot on expressionwise, great!
It’s taking longer every day, and must end soon, or become a one photo blog. But despite it all, I love doimg them. THey’ll be a break when I have the operations on the eyes, I expect.
Yes, I feel the time where I will end this blog is when Andy becomes an angel. I’m nowhere as much fun or as interesting as my kitties have been and will be!.
When you have the cataract operations, as I understand it, you will be in better shape faster than you expect. Your fans, of which I am, certainly hope so!
Thanks, Doug and Andy.
It looks ;ike its going to be a long job to get the eyes done. then the glaucoma, then the Saccades, then the dentis, then the DVT… Hahaha!
Keep save Sir.
As a fellow who’s falling apart, too, I understand!
♫Two of a kind ♫ Hehe!
Sad but true! LOL!
dood…that second foto oh ewe iz AWESUM !!!!! grate cap sure bye dad !!
we due knot haz buzinezz cardz … but we did haz a friend who made uz sum trout towne playin cardz over at shutterfly !! 🙂 ☺☺♥♥
You could have some really nice cards if you did a photo card!
Thanks! Andy is pretty photogenic, but it takes some effort to get shots in good light.
Love the cards, Doug. I don’t have business cards….in fact no cards. I usually just introduce myself. If they want to get in touch with me later and forgot my particulars then they’ll have to ask someone.
That’s specifically why I like the cards. Most people will stick them in their wallet or purse, then have that information later if they need it.
Those are nice cards, Doug! I have dear old departed Mr. Beaucastel on mine. 🙂
I still have a few left with Louie on them. Of course, I also have those Dougy cards. The one of him in the box is a favorite and is a screen print from a video made when the kitty boys were young.
I actually have Business or Calling Cards with Monkeys picture, as well as, my name, phone number and email. There good to give out for your contact info. People can put the info in their phone later, if they want.
Exactly, plus it saves your thumbs (or however your type on the small smartphone screen) and a bit of time at the time. I feel strongly for business cards, especially when you will be handing out more than a few.
I don’t remember if you remember the old Dewer profile ads. I did one up for my cat Smidgen for when I did boat shows because she was known as the carving shops cat. Everybody loved it, and Smidge seemed to be pleased with the attention.
I don’t recall it, but maybe I would if I saw it. Sounds like a winner!
I loved it, so beautiful and lovely… Thank you, Love, nia
A good idea. I have blog cards bearing snips from posts
That would be excellent for your style of posts! A good business card shows a bit of that.
Those are cool looking cards. Not dull looking like most business cards.
Thanks! You have some naturals for an effective card.
Beautiful card of member of the association for the protection of the cats .
I recall sending you and some others copies of at least one of these cards in Christmas mail…
No, I do not have a business card at all, but I’d never come up with an idea as brilliant as yours, I’m a little bit jealous 😉
It’s easy to have them made and not that expensive.
p.s. It’s a great way to introduce people to your posts, which I highly recommend!
This is so sweet, Doug! Such a brilliant idea, I’d love to have a card. Meow! 😂
Actually, you could justify it since you do those excellent photos.
they are great… we want our own cards now too…
They are fun and, for those of us with presence on the Internet, it’s a way to let others know what to find there! “Weimars” are such comedians, about any photo of the two of you would make a fun card!
