Sketch Journal Project: Cats!

cats004

Although I am certainly not a cat hater..I cannot say I am particularly a cat lover.
To me, they are always at the look out of favoring my favorite dress with their claws and adorning my sweaters with their hairs.
But the Walkerboys do love cats and share their apartment with two of them. The Regal Leo was first and since a couple of months this rather chubby girl called Raine joined the group. My son are sensible and put her on a diet.
Raine does not see the benefits of that yet but she adores my sons and abides Leo, s all and all she is a happy girl.



So after spending so much time with them no wonder my pencils produced this page…

Wat schetsjes en foto’s van katten…niet mijn favoriete dier maar de Walkerboys hebben twee exemplaren. Meestal zetten ze t liefst hun nagels in mijn favoriet jurk of strooien hun haren op mijn trui…maar ach, t zijn toch wel schatjes en goed om es te tekenen ;o)

Love and Liefs, Johanna

A Gentlemen’s Apartment, Part Three…The Regal Cat!

And of course…every Gentlemen’s Apartment needs a Cat With Attitude. And what a fine example the Regal Leo is. A very well mannered Aristocat who greets everyone who enters the door with polite authority and receives exclamations about his magnificent appearance with dignified modesty. ( yeah, as if…that vain cat does not fool me!)

Can you believe it that about six years ago this lovely fellow was found on the road, hit by a car more dead than alive. Our vet was taken by his beauty and performed extensive surgery to save his life. (Later we adopted him.) Today he still limbs, has only one shoulder blade and a bit of a funny expression caused by a broken jaw, healed a bit crooked.

This does not bother him at all, he is good natured and full of humor. Always on the lookout for a warm lap and cuddles. He is quite vocal and appreciates a good conversation, especially about food and himself.He loves all people, except women with high pitch voices. Reminds him of a cruel owner in the past or does he think it is just bad taste?

Charley Dog and Leo hated each other with a passion, so Leo happily packed his suitcase when the Oldest Walker Boy went to university and moved with him from pillar to post in the past few years. And never minding that one bit, claiming every new dwelling immediately as his new Kingdom.

However, he approves very much of this Gentlemen’s Apartment and the arrival of the Youngest Walker Boy, who waits on him hand and foot.

Tja, en in een Herenappartement hoort natuurlijk een deftige kat. De koninklijke Leo voldoet aan t plaatje en t is ook nog eens een gezellige prater en knuffel.

Love and Liefs,

Johanna.
