Yo. It’s that day that comes around once a year where we celebrate one of the greatest things that ever happened. Yep, it’s my birthday. I was born some eleven years ago, or thereabouts.

Truth be told, No one knows the exact date I came into this world, but it was sometime in April, so April Fool’s Day seems to be the best day to go with.

Not that I am a fool, or nothin’. I can be a bit of a prankster, though.

Humans celebrate birthdays like crazy. They throw parties, eat cake, share presents, and have all kinds of fun.

Betty White had a flash mob on her birthday.

The world celebrates its birthday with fireworks.

Brewskie Butt Cat Pawty Animal

Art by BZTAT

I and my Twitter pals once held a Paw Pawty on Twitter fur my birthday that lasted 24 hrs and included critters from all over the world. After that, it grew into a big thing where there was a Paw Pawty every month to raise money fur animal rescues. There are still Paw Pawties happening on Twitter all the time.

I am not so much a pawty animal anymore. I tend to spend my time relaxin’ in sun puddles and chasin’ Mia Meow. But hey. Why not have a BREW and a nip cigar fur old time’s sake?
.
Whatever YOU do today, make sure it is purr-worthy fur my birthday, OK?

My human has been yappin’ at me because I have grown lazy as her brand manager. Apparently she expects ME to do her marketing fer her.

*yawn*

What does she expect? I mean, she hardly draws pictures of me anymore. She’s always drawin’ pictures of other cats.

I gotta admit. I kinda like this one. But, ya know, if she keeps with this theme of drawin’ over newstype, I think she should draw one of me.

Just meowin’.

If you like the drawing, you can read more about it here.

*yawn*

You may have heard the news that has shattered some folks’ illusions: “Hello Kitty is not a cat.”  Seriously. Is anyone surprised? Why is everyone upset?

Not all characters are based on real life individuals, and the ever popular “Hello Kitty” design is completely fictional. It’s no different than Charlie Brown or Garfield.

The more astounding news that has not been reported, however, is that the creator of “Hello Kitty”, Japanese artist Yuko Shimizu, made no profit from her design. She created the design as a “work for hire” project while working at the Japanese company Sanrio, who has reaped millions of dollars from products featuring the feline image.

That is very sad to me. I think that artists should benefit from their creativity as well as the companies who merchandise their designs into products. Although I think companies should prosper from partnering with artists in mutually beneficial licensing arrangements, I think the artists should get a fair shake.

My human is an artist, and she draws pictures of me. They are sorta cartoony, and there could be some confusion about them. So to clear that up, I want to say to you, unequivocally, BREWSKIE BUTT IS A CAT.

Brewskie Butt real cat BZTAT

Very Real Cat

A real live, furry and in the flesh CAT. Not fictional. REAL.

So there. I said it.

And so you know, it is the dream of this cat and his artist human that someday, Brewskie Butt, TM will be every bit as prosperous and popular as the FICTIONAL “Hello Kitty”character via licensing agreements that make both the production company and the artist very wealthy. And make me the richest cat around, as well.

If you’d be interested in making some products featuring my gorgeous image or artworks created by my human, please contact us. We’d love to meow with ya about it.

Just Meowin’,
