Daily Sketch: Giuseppe and His Green Sparkle Ball

Giuseppe was all about his green sparkle ball today for some reason. He carried it into the “office” in the evening meowing loudly, telling us all about how he’d hunted and killed the fierce little thing. Giuseppe has a voice as big as himself but he always ends his song with a few plaintive mews. He always seems disappointed that no one stands up and claps. In any case, I love his profile, though I didn’t quite catch it. Cats aren’t good at holding poses, and I have to stop to pet them while I’m working.

What else was I sketching on this date?

Mewsette was a little shy and they all were a little upset that I was away. We had a nap this afternoon after I came home to get reacquainted. Even when I sit on the bed to sort yarns or something, they join me and nap all around me. Today we just had a lot of love and play, then they napped and I photographed and sketched. You can be sure they won’t let me out again soon.
