Illustration Friday Topic: Enough!

I'm not currently owned by a cat, but have been in the past. I also continue to be intrigued by the complexity of the feline persona.

Through my experiences, I have drawn the following conclusions about cats. They are completely uninhibited, incapable of being shamed or chastised. In their view, they simply do nothing wrong....ever. They don't generally need humans, and don't really even like us very much. They tolerate us though, because they know we are the ones with the debit cards, the driver's licenses, and the access to the local grocery store aisles lined with cans of gourmet kitty food. Therefore, they do permit us access to their world....just enough to suit their purposes.

P.S. This print is available for sale in my Etsy shop!

I have one cat who is exactly like you described. We call her the "keeping it real cat". heh! I also have two who are completely opposite. One male and one female, Persians. They are clingy lap cats who crave attention. Persians are like little puppy dogs. They even come when they're called.

"Keeping it real"! That's a perfect description! Cats don't seem to ever want us to think they like...or need us too much.
You have cats that come when called? Amazing! Maybe they are having an identity crisis, and think they are dogs? Whatever the reason, I'll bet they are lots of fun!

Thanks for visiting my blog!

I love the view! I'm owned by a (20) lbs. dog-cat named Oscar and you must know him since that description fits him completely. Nicely done!
