Afterword: Seconds later this tender, compassionate moment was spoiled by the fact that the cat had missed his breakfast that morning...

BOoooooo! Keep getting a time out message when trying to order this shirt! And, I was so hoping to be first sucker. And now, my cat won't stop scratching me because I didn't buy this shirt.

I really wish there was more of a push for art over popularity at times. There were far more creative and artistically pleasing shirts that should have been printed.

Very appropriate First sucker...

Just a hunch, but this outsells the 1st and 2nd place shirts in the derby.

Call it a draw. ;)
The mouse gets credit for being nice enough to hold the umbrella for the cat.

At first I thought it was a Bass print, but it was Ramy. Funny thing though, Bass was the first sucker... The cuteness of this shirt could quite possibly assist many in getting out of tickets.

Of course Bassanimation was the first sucker on a shirt with a mouse on it, can't you hearing the squeeeeing?

I thought it was a cute shirt until i read the creepy backstory.

I can suspend my disbelief far enough to accommodate this design except for one thing...

How the heck did either of them open the umbrella?

The cat's kind of a jerk. The mouse is holding the umbrella, and glancing up hoping to find the glint of friendship, and the cat won't even acknowledge him.

Reminds me of the scene in "My Neighbor Totoro" where the little girl offers Totoro an umbrella while they're waiting at the bus stop. Except that had less of a chance of someone getting eaten.

Agreed. This site is becoming CatWoot more and more by the day. There are far more creative and inventive designs every week, but the obsessive cat people seem to be much more adamant on voting in the derby than the average person is. I eagerly anticipate the new themes every week just to see what unique designs have been dropped in the hat, and every week delivers a surplus of generic cat shirts that are nothing more than "cute."

I like the style of the design, but it is still just another cat shirt.

So you're ok with the mouse holding the umbrella that weighs a gazillion times more than him but not that he opened the umbrella.

Oh, that backstory is TOPS! I wonder which one is male... (Or could it be? Heh, heh, heh.)

Um, 2 of the 3 printed shirts in this derby were more artistic than cute.

Even when you break down what wins people still complain that there aren't enough artistic ones.

bounty42 broke down the last 5 derbies Here showing that art beats anything in the top 9 at least 3 to 1.

This.

I have learned that facts don't mean anything to people who just love to complain.

I know that, in this derby, we had two "artistic" prints and this one. Here's a thought: Maybe people complain about the generic cute animal winning all the time because they ALL look pretty much the SAME. Especially when they're from the same artist. So, while in reality, there's more "other" prints, it just seems like cute animals are ruling Woot.

note2001 wrote:Cute, but I'm bothered by the missing foot... and stomach :/


I'm sure it's not a mistake - RamyB takes artistic freedom and chooses to leave out stuff all the time.

The writeup is awesome. It really elevates the level of the shirt. Unfortunately, you'd have to have read the writeup to get it.

Sorry, I gave up and went to bed when I couldn't buy the shirt. I wait up until 1am my time to see the shirts. I use FireFox. It just kept timing out after I selected the size and clicked purchase. I just took it as a sign that I should save my $12.00.

Even the "artsy" stuff that wins these days is mostly overdone and repetitive. Both the glowy heart and swirly butterfly prints could have easily been Ramyb ideas. Which means they look plenty like things Woot has printed before and aren't exactly new ideas.

People complain about the chibi animals more because they are all so nearly identical and it's the easiest to notice.

Of the top 6 only Rasabi's ghosty tree is anything near an interesting original work. The kind of memorable design people would be pining for years from now if it printed and they missed it.

Missed the cute but sad cat, TARDIS, or swirly side print shirt? Don't worry, another one just like it will be along shortly!

Same by me, using Opera. Buying Shirts here for 2 Years now. This is the first one i want and won't get.

Maybe a localization issue? I'm from Germany.

I'm in NY, USA. So, I don't know what happened. First time I've had an issue buying a shirt. Oh well, maybe I'll just buy another side-sale kitty shirt instead.

Disappointed by this shirt. Don't think it is very interesting or even well done. I used to love checking the shirt of the day but seeing the same stuff day after day gets boring quickly. Just don't see how this shirt got so many votes. Not even very good artwork in my opinion.
