More domesticated critters! I kind of want to keep going down the derpy pet route for the book and lay off the exotics for a bit, only because I like being able to push the personalities of animals that I know personally. Maybe there could be a cocker spaniel or two in the mix soon!

Anyway! This is Merlin, a Siamese cat who was adopted as a stray by my two good friends.  I haven't really sat down with him, but I can tell he's, well, touched. I can't confirm or deny whether this scenario happened IRL, but I think EVERY cat owner has had to deal with this at least once in their lives. Merlin is a pretty bead on a necklace.

Those who know me know that I am just not a cat person. Dogs? Hells yes. Rats? You know it. Cats... um... well, I've met a few mentally challenged ones that were pretty cool, the kind that meow at nothing and slam into walls. And all of those ones had some degree of Siamese in them, go fig.

Anyway, fate has me in a position where I cannot escape cats. My housemate has 2. My boyfriend has 2. most of my best friends have a few. So when life gives you hairballs, make derpy art.

So hilarious, "touched" seems like the appropriate description to accompany this illustration!

I love your cats! I think they have that same mischievous demeanor as the cats that I know! So thank you for sharing! I love illustration, I have done illustration for too many years to count now!

Anyway I have really great pics of the South shore on beautiful summer days with blue skies and filled beaches! But in the winter this year its really taking a beating with the high winds and water levels, but hey its Massachusetts! I would attach them but not sure if I can, im not that computer savvy Im more pencils, brushes pens etc savvy! Thanks for sharing! Boston will always be there for the 1st time visitors to see the sites or hit the freedom trail or hit the beer tasting at Harpoon or Sam Adams brewery! not to mention the amazing restaurants! Or just the locals and past locals to walk along the Castle Island, the common, or grab some of the best crab cakes or New England clam chowder! Boston will always be there for those beautiful visits.
