I Follow My Cats Around With a Sketchpad…

Peaches does it again.

Peaches has entered into several new careers since she came to me four years ago—at about age 15. Mostly, she’s a model for me to sketch, paint and photograph (see the post below entitled “Senior Pet Adoption Program”), and soon she’ll be the subject of a few cartoons. This is a new piece that’s a combination of pencil and watercolor done en plein air, if you can call it that when you’re in the house. Visit “My Cats” and scroll to the bottom to find this new piece and see an enlarged view of it. I’ll be framing the original soon, and making prints as well as notecards.

In one of Peaches’ other careers, she learned to use my digital camera…read about it here.


From health and welfare to rescue and adoption stories, advocacy and art, factual articles and fictional stories, "The Creative Cat" offers both visual and verbal education and entertainment about cats for people who love cats, pets and animals of all species.
