Darn. One more shirt I would buy on an AA blank. Oh well, $12 stays in my pocket I guess.

Did you know the full saying is actually "Curiosity killed the cat, but satisfaction brought him back again" ? Well, now you do.

It's not curiosity killing our cats, it's kidney disease.

I usually get the cat shirts, I won't be getting this one.

I'm a dog person, but I see why outlining dead cats looks funny (or cute, for the ladies).

Then I pictured oulined dead dogs and it wasn't funny anymore. There goes my purchase.

Congrats on the print though!

That happened two months ago.

So I may as well tell you they changed the blanks too ...

This shirt is extremely well done. The details are amazing, all the way down to the crack in the concrete and the texture of both the concrete and the metal. Very impressive.

Seriously though, I am highly tempted to purchase this for one of my best friends, but she is a serious cat lover, so I'm not sure how she'd take this. Although...she does have a warped sense of humor. Hrrrrm...



I feel like I should check in, as a cat lover and a warped sense of humor. I think this is kind of cute. As pointed out above, the detail IS amazing.

I think the bigger questions are:
How does she feel about wearing words across her chest?
How does she feel about the color grey?

Personally, I'm not into wearing words so I'm not into this shirt, but I appreciate the design and the pun involved as a cat lover.

I'm just hanging out, really.

WOW! There seems to be a lot of people (mostly those who identify themselves as cat lovers, and I love cats, too), who are missing the point of this shirt. This is not a shirt about cats, dead or otherwise. This is a shirt about curiosity. Using other entries in the fog as an example.... "After all this time" is not about a deer, "Read" is not about a dragon or a pig, and "Seed of hope" is not about a plant. It's about hope.

Relax. Breathe. This shirt is about CURIOSITY.

It goes "As I was going to St. Ives, I met a man with seven wives. Every wife had seven sacks. Every sack had seven cats. Every cat had seven kids. Kids, cats, sacks, wives... how many were going to St. Ives?"

=) So yeah, the cats were in there somewhere.

I think this is a supremely clever design with multiple levels to it! If you find this morbid, then you must find the cliche "curiosity killed the cat" morbid too, no? The chalk visuals are chalk outlines of the word curiosity and just so happen to be in cat form, implying that a curious cat or group of cats used their nine lives in different curiosity-induced ways.

It's an amazingly clever and well thought out design, and the execution adds a lot of commentability to the shirt without overwhelming it. for a glace, some might question it then "get it" and if they bother to continue staring at your chest (awkwaaard) they'll see the crime scene in its entirety.

Basically; HATERS TO THE LEFT AND LONG LIVE THE CAT. Great job collin

How do we know this isn't the work of a serial cat killer that goes by the name "Curiosity"? Sounds like a case for the detectives of major case squad.

The full saying is, "Curiosity killed the cat, satisfaction brought him back."
The second half kind of invalidates the first half.

1. I LOVE cats AND I LOVE this shirt! GJ artist.

2. Why couldn't this have printed AFTER I received my first Anvil shirt? I don't think it will get here till Monday so I don't know if I want a women's or a men's size

I know it's been a while since I bought a tee, but didn't they used to be 10 bucks or was it always 12?

Yes. Fortunately we do. :^)

Congrats Collin! I had this placed in the top 3 for sure. If only for the comic book artist level of attention to detail in the background.

Great shirt!

Brilliant and appealing, even if you don't notice the images spell out words! And on Anvil! I'm eager to get one in a size that fits women with a chest, finally. The AAs are nice quality, but while waist fits, chest is always too stretched. Going in for one, and maybe for my curvy college kid, too.

Dear Woot,

I represent Curiosity's law firm and would like to request you stop spreading false rumours.

Your shirt is running on the assumption that Curiosity killed the cat. This is simply not true. Curiosity was found not-guilty and aquitted of all related charges. It is likely that Curiosity was framed by Ambivalence.

Curiosity would like to regain a normal life and not be subject to such claims in the future,

Yours sincerely

Arthur Mann,

Well, I took the plunge like all of the other kitties. I ordered 3, for myself and two co-workers. Confused that with a price increase that the shirts are now outsourced. I don't mind paying more, if I knew that someone local was getting a job.

Count me as another cat lover who ordered this shirt. I've been waiting for a design to try the new Anvil WXL, so this one is it. And I ordered it first thing this morning with his majesty (my 14yo blue and white cat) curled up by my feet.

I'll be very surprised if I don't find a second copy of this shirt in my stocking come Christmas. My dad loves to tease me about cats, and my family tends to shop throughout the year. Meanwhile, hopefully I can wear the new WXL size.

The saying is curiosity killed the cat. It's one cat that died 9 times.
