Anyone that has a cat has caught them doing just this...:) It always makes me laugh as they think we cant see them. I do hope the cats in the wild are better at it then some of our domestic friends..:)

How funny! Yes, typical cat :D I love it!!!!!

My cousin has this tiny cat named Parker that sits up with her paws curled up and looks just like a squirrel!!! (I keep telling her I'm going to steal it!! :evil: ) She just had kittens though and one is a (healthy) tiny runt that is adorable! So they are keeping it for me so I can take it when we move. I'll try to get pictures of them all next weekend when we visit.

This is so well painted and so cute! If you exhibit this one I'm sure it's bound to sell.

Your so clever!

Tis is terrific!
I haven't lived with cats in years, but this one made me laugh out loud. I remember those moments.
I had one cat who always liked to 'hide' behind a small potted plant. His rear end was always in full view,but his face was in the plant,so he must be invisible...*giggles*
Thanks for the chuckle:D

Thanks everyone..:) I find that not very often do we do a painting that makes us smile throughout the process. This one did..:)
Paul, this one sold last week and did good Im happy to say. The new owner is very excited to be receiving it..:)
Rachel, I would show the reference if I could but it is a combination of a few and most of the cat is out of my imagination. It started out as a siamese and I decided first I wanted a white cat for this so the colour changed. Then I decided the odd eyes would be suiting as well and so on. If I ever do one from a reference image, I will be sure to include it for you...:)
Wingnut, cant wait to see your kitty images!!
