My Work in Progress

A sketchblog where I post a few of my scribbles from a variety of works-in-progress, usually from my rather random personal creativity outside of the daily grind. I occasionally, but not always, post the final artwork.

What Does the Kitty See


Sometimes one of my cats will be looking fiercely at something, all ears and whiskers to attention, that only they can see. It's certainly caught my own attention often enough that I'll come over and investigate...and then there's nothing there to see!

Or was there?

This past weekend, Mina and Marco were all focused on their brush basket by the hall bookcase, which happens to be across from the bathroom, which happens to be where I was cleaning the mouse aquarium...can you see where my tale is going? One of the two mice (mouse one and mouse two as mentioned in a previous post) had decided to go adventuring, and somehow got herself down from the counter and behind the bookcase when I left the bathroom for a bit to let the little tank soak before scrubbing. I have to guess that at some point the mouse was checking out the brush basket because my cats were certain sure she was in it. My fear was that my cats had realized they had a fun lively toy to play with, however briefly, and had let their teeth and claws get into the mouse (blood and gore, EEK!!), but that wasn't the case. The mouse was fine, and quickly brought back into the bathroom to be reunited with her roommate, and the cats continued checking out the book shelf for the rest of the afternoon in the hopes that another mouse would happen by.

That did NOT happen.
