I confess I have a bit of a love-hate relationship with cats.  I absolutely adore kitties, but somehow adult cats and I don’t always see eye-to-eye.  Another life skills area to work on, I guess.  (Trying to see eye-to-eye with cats in my illustrations might just be the first step in my rehabilitation!)

(P.S.  To see more details about this illustration and to purchase, please visit my Etsy shop.)

    Nice! I like the details. And don’t worry, you’ll get there with cats. Just remember the rule of thumb: dogs have owners, cats have staff. The cat’s the boss, always. Well, almost always.

      Hi Helen,

      I guess my problem has been with thinking I’m the boss! Recently, I was petting a friend’s sleepy cat. The cat was purring and seemed totally in heaven until all of a sudden he lunged and bit my wrist. Normal, or am I doing something wrong?!
