When Kip places a paw firmly at the base of my red wine glass and inches it precariously close to the edge of my coffee table – all the while staring me straight in the eyes – I have to wonder what’s going on inside that furry noggin.
Turns out New York City artist, comedian and cat man Christopher Rozzi pondered the same question. So he combined his talents to create Tiny Confessions where he sells prints that venture into the deep recesses of the feline mind.
“I think it’s fun to imagine a cat’s confessions,” says Chris, “because they’re naturally mysterious. They could look like they are just sitting around staring into the abyss and yet they might be thinking ‘I freaking love the fresh scent of my new litter’.”
Personally, I believe Kip’s deepest admissions are more along the lines of “Another foster?”,”Dare me,” or “I will kill you in your sleep” (but only when I try to hold him).

Chris believes “All animals have their own distinct voice which, if we listen closely to, can give us a good laugh.”
