Herman the Blue Persian, Anthropomorphic Gray Kitty Cat Art Print by Max Bailey

Herman the Blue Persian Cat, fine art kitty gray grey cat with suspenders print by artist Max BaileyThis is a new fine art giclée print created from the original acrylic painting, “Herman the Blue Persian” by artist Max Bailey.

When Herman grows up, he plans to be a gentleman farmer.

He will oversee a huge catnip farm with lots of kitty employees who will tend to fields of fine-quality aromatic catnip plants. He will encourage his helpers to take frequent breaks to roll around in the catnip and hopefully be as silly as possible. He is aware that product testing is of the utmost importance.
