When we came up with the idea for Dogster and Catster, people looked at us like we were crazy. “It’ll never work!” they said. “It’s a waste of money!” They said, “Get your heads out of the catnip!”
Well, we’ve proved the naysayers wrong against all odds, and now we get to do what we love for a living: talk about cats and dogs!
Which is why we are totally obsessed with Steve Gadlin of I Want to Draw a Cat For You (.com). A web developer by day and a performing personality by night, Steve was struck by an idea that was just too whimsically ridiculous to resist: for the low, low fee of $9.95, Steve will draw, mail, and post a cartoon cat drawing for you according to your request.
Would you like to see a cat on the moon? Steve will draw it for you. How about a cat fighting an octopus? Steve will draw it for you. Or how about just a nice birthday greeting for your favorite feline-fond friend? Steve will draw it for you — and do a dance!
Steve was recently on ABC’s Shark Tank, where his drawings and his slick moves won over the heart (and cash!) of self-made billionaire Mark Cuban, who agreed to invest in Steve’s idea. We think we’re gonna have to ask him to draw a cat for Catster HQ.
Here’s to dreamers and entrepreneurs and the cats who inspire us!
What kind of cat drawing would you ask Steve to draw?
