A Chatty Cats Portrait Sitting

Sophie: Come on, guys! The artist is here!
Dexter: What artist?
Sophie: We’re getting our portraits painted today! I’m so excited!
Olive: Mama, did I sign off on this artist?
Mama: It’s our friend Jen. I didn’t think you’d need to sign off. Who’s going first?
Olive: I will. I want Jen to be fresh for my portrait.
Dexter: Mama, should I put on my bow tie for this?
Harley: I’m hungry! Will food be involved?
Woodrow: JenJen, I love you lots.

Last month I commissioned some portraits of the Three Chatty Cats and the Jr. Associates. And today, I want to share them with you!

About the Artist

Jennifer, who is a special education teacher, runs a small animal rescue with her husband. She has recently been auctioning off little paintings she’s created to help support their rescue – The Zoo Animal Rescue, which I featured on the blog a few years ago. I love all of the pieces she has been posting and asked if she’d be willing to do five personalized pieces for me. She said yes and I became her first official commission.

Creating the Artwork

You’ll notice each cat has a description above, which I first introduced in a post nearly a year ago. I emailed Jen these descriptions and a bit more about each cat along with some photos for reference. And from that, she painted their portraits and captured each one’s personality perfectly! I also love that she incorporated my blog header colors.

Open to Commissions

Jennifer is open to commissions if anyone is interested. While my pieces are 3″ x 3″, Jennifer can produce other sizes. You can email her directly to discuss pricing. And remember, the proceeds from her paintings support her rescue efforts! You can contact her at jenjenszoo@gmail.com. Let her know that Rachel at Three Chatty Cats sent you! (This is not a sponsored post, nor do I receive anything for referring you. I just want to support Jennifer and her rescue!)

Below are examples of paintings that she’s been auctioning off. All are 3×3 inches. Also, you can follow The Zoo Animal Rescue on Facebook and Instagram!

Samples of Jen’s Artwork


I love what Jen painted for us – I smile every time I see them. I’m pretty sure the cats are happy, too!

  1. These are absolutely adorable – the ones she did for your crew AND the others she’s done as well. Worthy cause and fabulous artwork – what a GREAT combination!
