On The Prowl Cartoons - Meet Rupert Fawcett!


(C) Ruppert Fawcett, On The Prowl Cartoons Used by Permission

MEOW! MEOW! Purr! For a few years now, Noah has been sharing the pawsome dog cartoons of Off the Leash created by Rupert Fawcett! The cartoons are about the hilarious life of living with a dog! Purrs, trust me - he captures it pawsomely as you will laugh and laugh some more about the antics portrayed in cartoons too true!

Purrs, recently I discovered that he has created pawsome cartoons about cats. He calls them On The Prowl! Purrs, and paws, we will be featuring his cat and dog cartoons about once a month! Meow, I hope you enjoy them. I know I have as he's captured the pawsome life for humans living with cats!

Paws, a bit about the cartoon's creator, Mr. Rupert Fawcett. was born and raised in West London, where he still lives with his wife and three mini-humans! He became a pawsome professional cartoonist quite by accident in 1989.  He was doodling a little bald man in braces and carpet slippers and named him Fred.

HISS! After receiving over 80 rejection letters from publishers, he was finally offered a place in "Midweek," a free magazine given away at London tube stations! Purrs, this was followed by a book deal and a contract for greeting cards. These became very popular and were seen all over the place! MEOW! A range of products and books followed. The cartoons appeared in the Mail on Sundays for around four years and over ten million cards sold. Meow, they are still going strong at www.moonpig.com!

Paws, when Ruppert Fawcett's mini-humans were still young, he created a new character he named "Daddy" which was based on his experiences of parenthood. Daddy greeting cards are available on www.moonpig.com too! Three books and merchandise followed!

Paws, soon after he gave himself the pseudonym Oscar Wendlow and wrote scores of spoof letters to public figures, politicians, and celebrities. A collection of these letters and their replies was published as "The Letters of Oscar Wendlow."

Purringingly, after that, he created "Uneasy Street," a half-page color cartoon strip which appeared in the Sunday Express Magazine every week. Paws, then he created "Close Encounters," a range of humorous color cartoons published as a book and greeting cards. Other recent creations are "The Mighty Pen" and "Midnight" ranges of greeting cards available through Moonpig.com,

"Off The Leash" and "On The Prowl" are his latest creations. These are the first he has launched on social media. "On The Prowl" cat cartoons features real conversations between cats! You can purchase "On The Prowl" from The Book Depository (Free Worldwide Delivery).

WOOF! BARKS! My pawsome friends at Operation Paws for Homes stopped by this week with a beautiful 3-year-old Boxer/Shepherd mix named Sweet Serendipity for you to meet. She's not like the typical Boxer size but more like a larger Boston Terrier! WOOFs!

Sweet Serendipity, I learned, got her name because she was found in a shelter, sad, alone, and pregnant. After OPH found her, she was taken to a foster home and named Sweet Serendipity.

Sweet Serendipity raised her pups and is looking for her "Forever Home."

Sweet Serendipity likes other dogs. She enjoys playful wrestling with them. She knows basic commands, like her crate and will stay in it when her humans aren't home.

Sweet Serendipity does well with mini-humans! Her foster parents have grand mini-humans who stop by often to see her! She enjoys playing with them and eating any food they happen to drop! WOOF!

Sweet Serendipity doesn't require much! Just a warm loving home, a human who like to throw a ball and mind if she doesn't bring it right back. Sometimes she likes to play soccer too! She really loves toys that squeak!

If you would like to learn more about dog adoption, pawlease visit Operation Paws for Homes Adoption Guide.

If you would like to meet Sweet Serendipity or apply to adopt her, pawlease complete the Operation Paws for Homes Adoption Application.

WOOF! WOOF! Barks, my pawsome new friend "Miss Sherry" from Advocates for Abused and Abandoned Pets (A3P)  stopped by with a pawcellent friend for you to meet, Patches!

Patches is a 6-year-old Chihuahua mix. She is housebroken and up-to-date with all preventatives and vaccinations! Barks she likes her crate too!

Patches is a pawsomely sweet girl though a little bossy with other dogs sometimes! WOOF! Barkingly, that could be because she has only been with her new foster for a day and is just settling in.

Paws, Patches would enjoy being a couch potato with her human, She does have her energetic moments too! She is considered low-energy though.

Patches' short legs make it hard for her to jump up on things so she'll need some help getting up on the couch or going up the stairs. WOOF!

Patches enjoys going for car rides!

Patches will do best in a home with older mini-humans or an older settled couple who want a low-speed pet in the home. Not sure about her response to cats.

Interested in learning more about dog adoption or apply to adopt Patches? Pawlease visit Advocates for Abused and Abandoned Pets (A3P).

Barks, do you love dogs, but, for whatever reason, are not able to adopt? Please consider supporting Patches financially. Donations will assist with his care. Any extra funds will be used to assist other dogs at  Advocates for Abused and Abandoned Pets (A3P). Interested, please donate HERE!
