my new lodger



On Monday I picked up 2 x 12 week old kittens (from different homes) This is the first sketch from life. Smokey is half Norwegian Forest cat and a quarter Rag Doll and beautiful smoky shades. He's a little timid and very very loving and cuddly utterly gorgeous

The other is soft ginger and white of no particular breed and a perpetual motion machine! clumsier, rougher, can't keep still and also utterly gorgeous

I'd been missing having a cat and finally decided to go for it and acquire 2 so they would be friends. So far so good.

Re: my new lodger

Look at those fury ears!

What a great little sketch. You've captured the kitten hair of a long haired breed so very well.

Awww, these two babies are just precious! Please give them a pat from me and a kiss or two. Lucky you and lucky kitties. Both are gorgeous little fluffs.

Those strokes capture well his fur and personality. Oh, little one, look at your portrait! You’re so cute.

Re: my new lodger

Very cute kittens, I have a black smoke colored Maine Coon (probably mixed breed). Having a cat around the studio is very therapeutic.

Re: my new lodger

thanks all hoping to get some more sketches done but desperately trying to keep my head above water getting work ready for 4 exhibitions - drowning!

they have grown since this - Smokey the Norwegian Forest x is very leggy and growing faster - he's going to be a big cat. Simi still a stocky little clown who chases his tail, his back leg and falls of sofas and things and still so vocal I call him the ginger whinger he answers to it as well! Smokey much more dignified and with those soulful eyes

Re: my new lodger


Simi glowing in the sunshine


and on my desk being cute


and snuggled up together


and again


and my helper





the vet weighed them again when they went in for next immunisation - Simi had put on half a pound in 3.5 weeks - Smokey had put on 1.5 lbs! he really is going to be a big cat - he's tall, not fat, still quite slender in build under the fur

Simi is stockier, will be smaller and is the clown of the 2
