Yeah, I really have a thing about cats.
This is one painting in my series on the pretty little beasties. I've always felt cats had a secret life that probably included parties where they sniffed catnip and drank mousearitas.
A great cat book to recommend: The Newbery Honor Book, Whittington by Alan Armstrong. Two grieving kids take refuge in the barn at their grandparents home and are loved and entertained by all the animals. An old cat tells tales of his ancestors in medieval England. What I love about this story is that it is no big deal that the kids and the animals can talk to each other. They just do.
