I love this beautiful stencil by JPS for so many reasons. Firstly, and I make no bones about this, it is bloody brilliant. Secondly, it was the art of JPS (and Kid Crayon) in this area that led me down this path of discovery several years and as a result has brought me a great deal of happiness.

The cat is on the side of the King’s Shilling in Frogmore Street and is adjacent to his gladiator piece and round the corner from his ‘Big Deal’ stencil… a proper little JPS hotspot. My only complaint is that he doesn’t do nearly enough work in Bristol, and we have to wait literally years for him to come and paint.

The cat is, as I said at the top, beautiful. So elegant and full of poise, and it could easily be mistaken for a real cat at a glance. The other clever thing I should point out, that once spoken about cannot be taken back (spoiler alert), is that the markings on the cat’s flank spell out JPS.

I know of at least one other JPS cat which is in West Pallant in Chichester, an altogether more colourful cat. I love, love this stencil and am pleased that JPS made a recent visit to Bristol to spray it. It is especially good that it is very close to where I work and I can see it as often as I choose. Thank you JPS.
