Leo, the lioness

Leos, it is, apparently, your month. Your time to shine. Your time to be the commanding, warm-hearted and loving grumpy cat we all know you are around your birthday.

So to alleviate some grumpiness, I have put up my Fear Cats tee on Threadless for sale (usually $20, currently $17). That’ll go nicely with the free-shipping code, FREESHIP7197cca8e.

Also, if you want more Cat, I’ve dropped another £3 off the price of my Leo print on Etsy. She’s down to £9 with free global shipping.

Now, stop being a sourpuss and celebrate the fact you’re a year closer to your imminent death.

Happy cat month, Leos!

Cheers to Kathy & Warren for the continued $10 Patronage. You can find me on Ko Fi, Patreon, Etsy, Amazon, Skillshare and Threadless.

    1. Ooof, the Lion King thing right? Disney was (and still is) undoubtedly dicks, but we can roll that line back to Hamlet at least, haha.


      1. Hahaha! Yes, that’s the same anime that predates the Disney movie by decades. They still never owned up to that to this day, but now the conversation about Kimba is coming back after that (not) live action remake came out. I’ve seen and reviewed 4 parts of that series and it’s so mind blowing what they stole. I remember my jaw dropping seeing the villain Claw for the first time because it is proof positive that Disney didn’t even TRY when they made Scar. Haha.


    2. I’m a Leo myself, and this is too funny. I have been a little grumpy lately, but now I know why. 😋 Great little blurb!


    1. Wow, I knew the song was based on an older African song, but I didn’t realize how badly the original songwriter got screwed out of royalties. It seems like The Lion King is just teeming with theft. First, they steal from Japan when they ripped off so many characters, scenes, and plot points from Kimba the White Lion, then not backpaying the royalties from Solomon Linda from South Africa, and Disney had the audacity to trademark the phrase “Hakuna Matata” which they didn’t invent the term and it’s totally cultural appropriating from 90 million Swahili speakers and 5 countries where it has official language status (Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Rwanda, and the DRC).

      Thanks for the article, by the way.


  1. Not to ignore the deal (and sweet discount) but I am
    Torn between the drink tea one – the sprite dots – and plain little
    Sprite (and I am Glad to see the little
    Bitty art options –
    Anyhow – I am still thinking —/


  2. I didn’t realise just how badly Disney ripped off other films and songs even languages!
    I wonder how many other of their films are ripped off? Makes you wonder.


    1. I know Atlantis stole stuff from the 90s anime Nadia: Secret Of Blue Water especially with two of the main characters (Jean=Milo and Nadia=Kida). I know both were based on 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, but the Nadia elements were certainly copied. That was the first thing that came to mind although Atlantis doesn’t even come close to how bad The Lion King stole from Kimba, the Swahili language, or being accomplices to taking an original Zulu song. Notice how most Disney animated films aren’t original screenplays since they base them on public domain works or buy the rights to a story (Kimba wasn’t one of them). Originality is sorely lacking with that company.


      1. Oh, yeah. I have no problem with Disney or anyone making adaptations on public domain works or licensing the rights for a story regardless if I like said adaptation or not. What I do have a problem with is the double standard from Disney fans. If Kimba came out after The Lion King, you know everyone would scream and want to raise hell against Tezuka Productions for example. I guess if you have billions of dollars, you can do whatever you want. [sigh].
