Daily Sketch Reprise: They Always Find Each Other, 2012

It started out with Bean and Giuseppe, then Sunshine joined and hours later Mewsette joined the afternoon slumber party, as it always seems to happen. No matter where they are in the course of a day, they all end up together, tangled and content. How many photos ans sketches of them have you seen over the years? Some things never change. It’s very comforting.

And they fit so well together.

I drew this in charcoal pencil, then after a little break added the red conté outline because it was confusing even to me. And while they really look like a barely distinguishable blob of black when they do this, I thought it might be nicer for others to see a little more definition.

    There is something so comforting about cats snuggling together. All our cats have their solitary moments, but will inevitably find one another, finding warmth, companionship, and contentment as they fit together like a custom made puzzle. Having 8 cats, it is typically a revolving combination of 3 or 4 of them together at a time, unless it is a bedroom nap, where we sometimes will find all of them together!

      Deb, I think of your siblings–and their parents–when I see mine. I don’t know what the magic signal is, but they’ll all be in different places and one by one gather together. Their sleep is perfect. I love that they have each other, though sometimes I feel left out!
