I liked this a lot when I found it in Kensington Market.
It fell into the un-posted hoards in my photos archives.
Due to the lockdown, I haven’t been able to leave my extended hood for over a year.
Holly – House of Heart suggested I comb my photos stash. I found about 50 pieces. Thank you, dahling!
This cat has been on top of the world, ever since I can remember. It’s on the way out of Kensington Market, on Dundas West.
Hopefully the stash will help until some more art pops up in my walking zone.

Cat is always a bonus. Always.
Get a cat! No? They are the best, you know, purring and all. xx
Will be a hamster. Later this year. 🐹
Okay… sweet little creatures. 🐹🐹
Well I can’t get a cat for my flat. So a hamster is the next best thing!
Your hamster will be very loved!!!
Combing through the photos is like cleaning out the closet … including finding gems. Excellent mural. Very striking … and the cat made me laugh. Love the last image. Oh … sent an email.
Got the mail! Ms. Swork was holding it for me!
So lovely! Thank you for sharing, Resa! Sorry, i am once again late, but i hope you are well and stay save. Best wishes, Michael
Never worry about lateness! You are here when you are here!
You stay safe too, dear Michael!
Thank you very much, Resa! I am sometimes feeling sorry, not honoring enough your efforts. Have a lovely week! Michael
That’s a great mural, although I find the green “whites” of her eyes strange. Cats are on top top the world that’s a wonderful piece. It’s amazing what you find in the archives. Thank you Holly for asking Resa to do some digging.
Agree, cats are the top of the world. It’s about time I posted it. Forgot I had it!
Well, you know I LOVE the cat…always. The mural is beautiful, the colors wonderful, and she’s lovely. I didn’t know you couldn’t leave your neighborhood. Blah. Hope that changes soon.
Me too! I need to get around. Blah is right.
I can get Norm to drive me to somewhere and walk back. That day was a 4 hour walk back home.
The powers that be, on Friday, said police could stop us and ask where we are going. $750.00 fine, if you are not going shopping, or are in an area that is not close to home.
They could also pull over cars, to make sure people were going to work, and not to visit someone.
By Saturday, they took it back, due to it being unconstitutional.
However, the numbers are really awful here, and we keep running out of vaccine.
I’m wearing 3 masks and a shield.
Pasted boards or not, glad not to miss this beauty xxxx
She is a beauty! So glad Holly suggested you go digging. And that cat is rather cool, too!
TY… but mostly I want to say that… I adore you! xoxo CATS. …. DOGS
The feeling is mutual. You are adored as well!.
Very nice. Hope you can get out exploring more soon!
Thank you Trent, and I hope so, too.
I want to walk and explore.
Covid has messed up our lives …let me rephrase that…Covid and our failed/failing leaders have effed us up.
I have no faith in religious institutions, government and more or less, half of my countrymen.
Uncle Joe has done a good job with the vaccinations. It’s being undone by others.
I want to see him win!
Dig away crazy diamond.
Your entry has the Diana Ross/Billie Holliday look going on, big time.
Yes…crazy diamond things going on here.
I’m …. not …. afraid… Or
Okay wtf is going on?
Well, you’re dishing up great stuff nonetheless. 🙂
Thank you… you Sorry Less …… you!!!! xx
LOL! Thanks Cindy!
Jolly good to see said moggie as a ‘cat on frozen paw artic’ instead of his bossy brother on a ‘hot tin roof’. Your cat plainly has a tad more panache, young Resa, Best regards ~ TOF
Now that you mention it,TOF, it is on the Arctic!
Cats sure get around.
Someone lives eye level to the cat. Neat to see the Arctic Paw Cat every morning.
I wonder if it brings good luck?
I am rather keen on cats. They have a mind of their own, young Resa. You might have discovered a new breed, ‘The Artic Paw Cat’ aka TAPC. Regards, TOF
OMG! The TAPC Cat! Everyone won’t know what we are talking about!
Hehehehe… yet another secret society, with TOF at the helm.
Oh, I’m so glad Holly made that suggestion! [xoxo]
Strong mural but that cat steals the show, really!!! 😉
Someone next to me suggested there should be one with a dog on top of the world and I’m pretty sure she’s thinking of herself, or maybe her and her friends together…. okay maybe all animals on top of the world! 🤣😂🤣😂🐾🐾🐾🧡🤗🧡
Ahh, Hera on top of the world… YES! It’s definitely a fab idea.
Of course we are going to need a very large WORLD sculpture, and a lot of sponges.
OR… we could use the world we have, and do right by our animals, and all of nature!
Love ya, dahling!
Yep, that’s what we should do!!!!!
Love and many hugs back to you, dahling! 🐾❤🤗❤🐾
Cats really are on top of the world! 🙂 No doubt about it! 🙂
Stay safe, dear Resa!
Yes… cats rule! Do you have a cat? Dog?
Stay safe, Martha! xo
I did have two, some years ago. 😉
Such sweet creatures! xx
Wonderful mural. And that cat–love it! Cats are definitely at the top of the world. 😀
Agree! Cats are the best!!!! 😀
The cats statue is impressing, Resa.
Do you know how much time a mural paintings are living ? Or are they temporary ?
Some murals, big ones commissioned by the city, or companies live a long time. They are taken care of and touched up. I see some that are at least 10 years old.
Street art is more temporary.
A respected piece can last several years, before it is tagged over. Then another artist will paint over that.
Graffiti Alley in Toronto is always evolving. Artists are constantly painting over art. Art over art over art.
I try to document as much as possible.
Thank you for asking! ❤
Holly has brilliant ideas! I am so glad that you have a photo stash waiting to be discovered once again. It is like meeting up with a good friend for coffee to catch up on what has happened since last the last meeting.
That cat looks like our Nemo! And he would love being on top of the world as he adores when he’s the center of attention! OK he demands it, actually, lol. That’s great that you found a bunch of photos from your stash. I hope that soon you will be able to get out and explore outside of your hood again xx
I hope so! We are in Stay At Home orders for another month.
Nemo sounds gorgeous!!!! xxoo
Wow, Resa — that’s a gorgeous mural. Of course the cat on top of the world is perfect too! You’re the cat’s pajamas!
So are you! You are pyjamas of the cat’s, too!
Dreamy eyes lady with colourful face + atlas cat bonus 😎 Thanks goodness for archives when the pickings ain’t rich because of Covid! :)x
It seems the archives paid off, and will in the future! xx
I love these colors.
Animals are always better than humans ❤
Art pieces like this are great, they’re random and kind of make you laugh
The mural is beautiful. I love the colors. And the cat is pure fun. We have painted cows in Portland, OR. I love street art. Can’t wait to see what else you find in your stash!
Yeah… searching away!
We used to have painted moose. There’s only a couple left. They were mostly vandalized. Go figure?
That’s too bad. I don’t get it.
Top cat! Can you make out the stuff on the lady’s head? Eyeball?
Love the eyes… (and the cat) 🐱
