The cat was barely out the door, before the card game began.

Unfortunately Seymour thought they were playing “Go Fish,” and was accused of cheating at Poker by his unsavory friends.

    This is so clever, the composition from the mouse card game, looking out to the room with the cat, right through to the street! Amazing!x

    You always get the expressions so perfect! I love the view of the cat leaving, and the retro couch in the living room 🙂
