Kitty Zen

If you've ever tried to train a cat, you know that it's not exactly the path to harmony. Instead of resisting nature (your cat seems to say), you really should just go with the flow. Is there any pet that better embodies the essence of the Tao?

Zen out with these winking pillows with art by Patricia Carlin that celebrates the yin/yang of your feline relationship. One reads "To shun is to adore", and the other, "To obey is to resist." Both backs feature this enlightened tenet: "The Tao of Cat is to do your thing and leave the kitty alone." Made in Hendersonville, North Carolina.

Patricia Carlin believes that a small sketch has the power to tell a story without language. She started out as an art director in Philadelphia, selling everything from potato chips to financial products. In 2001, a friend wanted help launching a glassware business, so Patricia designed and wrote copy for several products for the new venture. Patricia has explored many techniques in her illustration, but simple line drawing appeals to her most. "For me, paring things down to their simplest essence is always the best way to understand them," she says.
