I love my cat. He is many things: liquid, blobby, lazy, hyper, bug hunter (…he leaves them for me to clean up), etc.
I’m always surprised how high he can jump for a chubby little fellow…though it’s not without incident…I’m not sure the phrase “cats always land on their feet” really applies to him.

My desk looks a little (cat) crazy right now…I drew out 24 versions of cats/curtains (and cut them out and poorly painted them) before devolving into my final cartoon version.
