Daily Sketch: Another Exciting Episode of “Mousewatch”

Apparently, we have a mouse under the sink. Giuseppe ceremoniously went to the cabinet doors, opened the left door while the right swung open just a bit, and settled down for a good watch. Sunshine was lured by curiosity, and likely also by the idea of a good game of mouse.

This program will aired for an indefinite amount of time and will pre-empt all other scheduled programs, including dishwashing.

I’m really going to have to get serious about some new markers, though…I think I’ve worn these out!

And that old kitchen sink unit, and wherever in the basement the mousies are coming in. My fine felines aren’t telling.

What else was I sketching on this day?

I’m beginning to think JB is playing me. I realize I’ve got more sketches of him than any of the others lately. I think he knows exactly when and how to pose so I’ll sketch him again. Tell me cats don’t know these things.

But he really is cute when he scratches on the scratcher hanging on the doorknob, especially when he looks up at me with those eyes. He had a good scratch, then hung from his claws and looked at me upside down until I noticed him. Yes, I’m sure he knows exactly what he’s doing.
