Cat-a-Doodles - 24 Adorable Cats Looking for Good Homes!

My name is Jo Toye. Most people know me as an abstract artist, author, and national art workshop instructor.

My husband knows me as "the goofball" and my family and friends know me as "that crazy art lady." I love being all those things but what brings me great joy is being a cat lover.

I fell in love with cats back in 1991 when the best cat ever, Hector, walked into our backyard and never left. Since then I have been owned by many cats, usually three at a time, and each one has increased my amazement at these glorious creatures.

To really know a cat is to be immersed in their funny, quirky, independent and amazing world, and no one comes back from that without being converted and forever captivated by their ways.

Like a cat, I have had many lives and I have been fortunate that they have all been filled with creative endeavors. For the past 16 years I have had the wonderful privilege to be a full time artist, author and art workshop instructor.

Back in 2007, while doodling in my sketchbook, I drew a Kitty face that I fell in love with. He and his litter mates have been living in that sketchbook for the past nine years.

I did a few paintings
with them but I just knew they were meant for something else. This past Christmas I was visiting my sister and was introduced to the adult coloring book phenomenon; I knew I had discovered the way to release my loves into the world. Finally their 2nd life outside the sketchbook could begin.

In February of 2016, I started the process of getting them ready for "adoption." I had just published an art instruction book through a large traditional publisher and the whole process had taken two years. I didn't want my Kitties to have to wait any longer to find good homes, so I chose to self publish, Cat-a-Doodles, through the author platform on Amazon (learning how to accomplish this used up one of my nine lives).

On May 6th, 2016, I released them into a sea of coloring books with the hope that the love with which I created them would see them safely into good hands.

If you love cats and you love to color I think you will love this book. You can find the book on Amazon at: You can find a page-by-page walk through of the book on my Amazon Author Page at:

If you should happen to adopt these kitties, and bring them to life with color, please be sure to share your creations. You can contact me at:

Thanks! jo

I love this book. I am also owned by cats and I love the way Jo captures cat attitudes and personalities in her book. I also bought one for my grown up daughter who is owned by a cat as well. I'm mailing it to her to surprise her!
