Purrfect together

BOSTON —  It took an artist to see the benefit of bringing cats and art together, and that is exactly what artists Rich and Lori Curtis did.

The couple, proprietors of The Board-walk Studio & Gallery of Boston, put together Art and Cat Café — in conjunction with Miss Kitty Feline Sanctuary — to be held from 6 p.m.-8 p.m. Saturday.

Devotees of the arts and cat-lovers will be able to peruse artwork at the Studio, nosh on coffee and cake, and pet adorable, adoptable cats who will be on hand for the event.

Suggested donations at the door are $5. All proceeds go to Miss Kitty’s operating expenses.

Rich will sketch some of the cats and hopes his two-legged patrons will enjoy visiting his gallery of work on display. 

The concept of bringing his two loves — Miss Kitty and his art — together made perfect sense.

“I really enjoy Miss Kitty and appreciate the work that the no-kill shelter does for the community,” he said. “I thought it would be an interesting event to have the two things together.”

From there, Curtis decided doing portraits of the cats and sketches might also appeal to cat-lovers.

“The idea just evolved,” he explained.

Cat Cafés are popular in New York and San Francisco.

Miss Kitty officials would like to hold Cat Cafés on a regular basis at other local businesses interested in hosting an event.
