The Cat And The Hat

30 Jan

Ming The Merciless spends most of her time on top of the boiler in the kitchen so she doesn’t feature as much as Sparta in my sketchbooks. But this evening she cwtched up on the footstool, shoving my feet out of the way, so I put Husb’s hat next to her and did some scribbles. She only has one eye; she lost the other when she was very young because of serious neglect – she was a rescue cat. She’s very tiny and her semi-long hair sticks up all over the place. Husb and I try to brush her every day, but she’s a complete psychopath and our hands are covered with scrams and her fur still sticks up all over the place!

The antibiotics are starting to work but I’m still quite ill – not able to go out for another couple of days. I’ve resigned myself to not being able to do much and I’m catching up with some novels, newspapers and arts documentaries on YouTube. The antibiotics make me very drowsy which helps.

    Very nice…I have a straw hat just like that one.

  2. Love the sketches of Ming – she looks and sounds like a real character. Glad you are on the mend it is miserable being ill in winter

      It certainly is – can’t go and lie around in the garden. Mind you, can’t do that in a British summer either.

    That’s crazy– My cat, Sid, is also a rescue cat and he too only has one eye! Beautiful drawing ^.^
