Daily Sketch: Mid-bath

I really wanted to catch Giuseppe bathing but he stopped to look at me.

I love sketching baths, each one is different and you see so many unusual postures. Typically, cats can’t be distracted from this all-important activity, especially after a meal, but Giuseppe believes that when he is getting attention, he should enjoy it.

  • My dearest Giuseppe. I have just seen the sketch of you bathing…. my dearest, your splendid head and handsome visage reveal that you truly are a house panther! Oh my, my, my feline hearts with admiration and respect and love.

    Surely you are a direct descendant of a wild black panther.

    Love, your Mlle Daisy Emerald of Fair Verona. xo

    • I think of you constantly, my precious. I wanted Mama Bernadette to sketch my face so that you would see me looking at you. My fair lady, I am purring on Mama Bernadette’s lap right now, hoping those purrs reach you through the magic message machine.

      All my love today and always,

      • Giuseppe, I too am sitting on my Mama’s lap and your purrs, magic in themselves, have reached me here in Verona on this beautiful sunny morning.

        Your face is so handsome. Your heart is so true. It IS a glorious morning my dearest Giuseppe.

        purrrrrrrrrrrrrrr, Daisy. xo
