Daily Sketch Reprises: You’ll Have to Step Over Me and Two Blue Cats

Cats laying in doorways, an age-old problem. What to do? Draw them! There was originally another kitty with Mr. Sunshine but he left, and then the phone rang, so if it looks a little unfinished, it is, but I like the loose quality. . . . . . . .
