Your fabulous feline could be the cover model of the first Ten Lives calendar! 

Ten Lives is auctioning off the 12 months and cover of their 2023 calendar. Cat lovers can bid on any month or the cover to secure their feline’s spot. Bid on your favorite month, all of the months, or just the cover – the highest bidder wins! The lucky winners will receive a custom drawing of their cat by Nyan Portraits, printing rights to the photo, and one copy of the calendar. The winner of “Cover Model” will have their custom portrait featured as the cover of the 2023 calendar to be admired by Ten Lives supporters! 

All artwork is hand drawn and painted digitally by Kali, the artist behind Nyan Portraits. Each portrait takes approximately 20 hours to complete. The finished product will be provided as a digital file that will be sent via email. For more information on how the full process works, check out their website

All of the proceeds from our 2023 calendar silent auction will go directly towards the cats and kittens in our care. So, bid high and bid often to secure your month! 


Kali Collins, the artist behind Nyan Portraits, resides in Massachusetts with her husband and three cats. She loves all animals, but cats have held a special place in her heart since childhood. Painting is one of her greatest passions, and she believes strongly in using her art to further the advocacy work of amazing rescues like Ten Lives Cat Rescue! You can find her on Instagram and Facebook @NyanPortraits and at her website. She can also be reached through email! 


Winners must submit example photos of their cat or a link to social media within 72 hours of auction close. Sorry, no humans or other pets! After 72 hours, the winner will forfeit their calendar spot and the next highest bidder will be contacted. Calendars are expected to ship in late fall of 2022 and all winners will be notified via email. Additional copies will be available for purchase.
