Daily Sketch: Under the Kitty Keep-warm Lights

They were immobile under the kitty keep-warm lamps at my computer. I couldn’t get any work done, all I could do was sketch them.

Jelly Bean watched me because my drawing things make neat little scratching noises on the paper. Mewsette simply napped.

Giuseppe couldn’t decide on his position, starting out crouching in front of me, then suddenly sitting up. I waited, sketched a basic sketch of him crouching, then worked on finishing it. Then he sat up, indicating he’d prefer being in that position. I did too, but he had decided against it and I sketched him crouching. He insisted. I told him I’d sketch him as one big black scribble and what would Mlle. Daisy Emerald Marguerite think of that? He immediately dropped back to a crouch.

Love, what it does to cats.
