kitty conundrum – or Purry Harry

September 10, 2008


I know what you’re thinking. “Did kitty roll over so I can rub his belly or is he lulling me into a false sense of security, so he can shred my arm?” Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement, I kind of lost track myself. But being as these are cat claws, the sharpest claws in the world, and would have you pulling back a bloody stump, you’ve got to ask yourself a question:

Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya, punk?

    He’s cute, but I wouldn’t trust the guy. He looks poised for no good!

  2. The color shading on this is superb and I like the kittens open expression, great work!

    Don’t fall for it! It’s a spring-loaded cat-trap! I know which of I speak. Ah but it’s oh soooo tempting…

    I have three cats, none of which I rub on the belly. Our first cat, “Tiger”, will let me get away with it if I am careful. But when that tail starts a’twitchin’, or he lets out one of those annoyed “rrrrrRRRRrrrrrrrrrrr”, I know he has had enough!

    Oh, you already did!!! Great cat, as only you can do. You know how I love the way you draw footies ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hah! The look is purrfect! Our one little guy does this game of kitty-roulette too. I know the risk, but for some reason I still go in for the petting.

  9. ah, kitty’s expression is fantastic. i just love how you draw adorable footies ๐Ÿ™‚ although i wouldn’t trust him this moment…

    With my kitties I can count on a belly rub for one and “don’t you dare touch me or lose an arm” with the other. Woe to the person who forgets which cat is which!

    Well, Bobo not quite like it, she would push my hand away with her legs.
    “come on, baby, try it”, looks like he’s inviting us to rub him!

    I have a thing for kitties… I often think that I’m just a big, fat cat myself, so no, I wouldn’t trust this guy.
    But I’d love to tickle those shiny pink suction-cup-like paws!!

    Oh, look at those eyes and sweet expression…Purry Harry wouldn’t dare, would he? Would he?
    Gosh, I do love your characters… they have so much personality. I love the pink paws, and the texture of the fur. Great colors too!

  21. Meg Says:
