I wander around in nature, draw what I see and write about all sorts of things.

Living with cats....
I come from a long line of pet lovers and have always had cats and dogs. I've had a few birds, a rabbit and countless fish as well. It used to be I called myself a dog person that put up with cats.
But over the years the cats grew on me. Even ole grumpy gus here, also known as Zeke. This old guy had a feral mom and is not fond of being handled though he has always let me handle him. He's very sensitive to touch and will let you know if you have overstepped your bounds but he follows me around the house like a puppy. No matter where I am he is close by. I had been drawing here at the table and you can see he just joined the party.
Here is his compatriot, Smudge. Smudge is as sweet as Zeke is not. Having said that, Smudge is not the brightest of the bunch, if you catch my drift. He is also quite large which makes his lack of foresight and intelligence, well, more noticeable. He is always miscalculating and knocking things down or making a mess somewhere.
These are not my first cats but they are probably the first cats that have made me laugh and admit that yeah, maybe I'm a cat person as well as a dog person after all....
How about you? Are you a cat person? A dog person? Neither? Both?
