Life Of Katz


Life Of Katz

by Kathy Long-Barker



Welcome to the inner workings of my very Mercurian and Protean being. My name is Kat, and I have precisely four cats. Or as I like to call them ‘Keats’. I also create lots of cat inspired art. So here I am, sharing my life, The life of Katz!

I want to start off by introducing you to a piece that took nearly a year and a half to create. It’s one of four currently, and come to think of it they all took around the same time to manifest!

This particular piece is called “The Bishop Gate” as they portray and radiate a portal for curious observers to reach higher realms.  Or maybe it’s because they have a star gate for a face…Hm. The role of a bishop in simple terms is to teach and govern. Here I’m trying to convey that in all reality we play many roles for ourselves, including high ranking ones. As we wake and ascend, more of the mask comes off and we realize that we are sovereign teachers and are capable of educating and governing ourselves. No longer are we bound to the illusion that we are incapable.

The themes present were not mapped out before the piece was started. It was smack dab in the middle of 2020 and I was making it up as I went. That’s how I work, it’s divinely channeled whenever Source wants to leave a memo. 

COVID stalked around every corner and humanity had lots of time to revel in the deeper questions, shadow work, and inspirations to create. Hints a germafied Mad Madam Mim, Merlin with his fibonacci spiral, and Absolem asking the grandest question of all. Who are you?

The Lorax asks you to think of the trees, while Johnathan Livingston Seagull asks you to think of yourself. Thoth simply suggests that you think in general, and if you’ve ever read illusions by Richard Bach, you’ll know that the blue feather next to him hints at throwing out everything you THINK you know, because there’s so much more than you can imagine. 

This piece has endless explanations, but I’m going to take this next moment to introduce you to one of my guardians and my very first cat daughter. Her name is PutPut. 

My friend Hayley gifted her to me when I was 16, she was the only midnight kitten, and upon first contact she gave me kisses on my nose. We’ve been inseparable ever since. I find she’s helped me most in developing my fifth dimensional gift of sight, as she’s seen and protected me against many a shadow man or looming energy in the houses we’ve lived in over the years. We’ve definitely incarnated together before, and That’s why out of all the cat pieces, I feel like she’s connected most with “The Bishop Gate”

Remember kids, appreciate your furry or feathered guardians. You never know who’s remote viewing without your knowledge. They’ll keep you safe.

Fairfarren everyone.
