Yes, you read that right.
It’s actually the title of a painting of a calico cat with monarch butterly wings that’s available as notecards.
My friend Ada found it after reading my previous post about monarch butterflies belonging in the calico color palette. She got curious and googled “calico butterfly.” She found this image and wrote me, “This cinches it, there is nothing you can’t find on the Internet.”
Since neither she nor I could get the calico cat-butterfly fairy image to upload, you’ll have to click on the link to Zazzle.com and see the mash-up for yourself! (The image is from a painting by Pamela Fleming.)
This is a link to Fleming’s online store, MagicalTails, where she has more “Fantasy Cat and Nature Paintings” — a concept which sends my mind into kind of a sickening tailspin of cuteness overload, so you’ve been warned!
Meanwhile, back in my world of catty calicos, I’m pretty sure this cat saying,
“Hey, are you calling me a fairy, lady?!!”
