Daily Sketch: Two Green Cats

Colored pencil sketch of two cats

Giuseppe is dark green, Jelly Bean is light green; I added the cranberry outlines for greater definition.

Bean is crouching just a bit as if he’s ready to lie down and curl up, but he really is significantly shorter than Giuseppe. Both are dozing under the kitty keep-warm lamps on my desk. Too bad for me if I need the light, quickly absorbed by two black cats.

I save them at 1000 pixels maximum dimension, and at that size the images are nearly twice the dimension and you can see more detail in many of the images I post; I hope you students do this.

Nice Cat Bed!

Mimi approves of the new cat bed.

Open a drawer and Mimi is in it, as if she’s pulled into it by some strong magnet. A pile of nice soft cotton skirts meets with her bathing and nap-preparation approval.

In the upper left of the photo you will see another black cat tail; this is Mewsette, who is ready to drop down into the drawer from the top of the chest. I fear for the integrity of the old drawer if Mewsette drops into it..

And all those scratches on the drawers of the chest? About three decades of cats jumping up onto it…

Lazy Bums: 2011

Lazy Bums

I wondered why I was alone at my desk all afternoon yesterday. Upstairs I found all four having undone my neatly made bed to their own specifications.

You may only see three black cats, Mewsette, Mr. Sunshine and Jelly Bean. but that lump on the far left next to Mewsette is Giuseppe—under the covers. He has to be different. He also makes a good pillow.

This photo reminds me of How to Subdue and Control Cats from just two weeks ago. Though this photo is from 2011, it could have been today which turned out to be quite chilly after weeks of unseasonably warm weather—if I hadn’t packed the wool afghan away already. They did cuddle on the bed, but instead came downstairs to cuddle under the kitty keep-warm lamps, otherwise known as my task lights, at my desk.
