INKTOBER 52 2024 Week #7: CAT.

“…Get it? Almost an overwhelming number of directions I could have gone with his prompt, there are so many idioms and phrases with the word ‘cat’ in them. I considered revisiting an older drawing I did for my cat-loving son. I thought about famous cartoon cats like Sylvester, Tom, Garfield, Heathcliff, and of course Hobbes. I contemplated a parkour and/or martial arts angle, too. In the end, I had to go with my Brain’s literal interpretation of ‘cat o’ nine tails’.
Side note: I never had pets growing up, but my wife and I have had dozens of cats since we started dating. Yes, that sounds like a lot, and it is. We actually used to breed and show them way back when, hence the large number. Probably not the kind of thing you’d guess about me. I mean, if anything you’d probably guess I had pet monkeys or used to work at a zoo or circus or something, and I wouldn’t blame you. But no, just cats. Well, a dog, some parrots, and chickens, too, but we’re talking about cats, here.”
