You know how they are with these canvas shopping bags—they hardly hit the floor before you see a cat slowly disappearing into them, just the tail and maybe a leg left and then it’s just too late. Mimi reappeared later, though.

Don’t worry, I keep a close eye on all my bags so no one gets stuck inside one or gets a handle wrapped around them. This one had small pieces of artwork in it which I removed only to have it fall over and that was when the incident with Mimi happened. Yes, I sketched it before I removed Mimi from the bag.

I love views of my cats from above. Perhaps that’s because most often that’s the angle from which I see them. I was actually waiting for Mimi to pause so that I could get a start on a sketch. Read more and order.
