Daily Sketch Reprise: Emeraude Tonight

Emeraude looked so pretty on her stack of colorful rugs and blankets and her favorite catnip toy, I thought I’d sketch her. She’s doing okay, not too active, surprisingly good appetite, not much in the box so I don’t know where it’s going but I’m keeping an eye on things. At the moment I’m not concerned how she might be in the morning, though last week I was. She wavers in how she feels. In the meantime, she’s comfortable and very happy, always talking to me and standing up to greet me. I guess that’s what we can ask for now.

What was a sketching a year ago today?

Mewsette gives a deep bow to the morning sun as it angles in the door, in pencil for a quick catch. A follow-up to today’s sun puddle cuddle.
