Cats are back!

There have been complaints from some quarters that I have not drawn enough cats lately. However I have converted what used to be my blog for mostly cat drawings ( into a site for entirely swimming drawings ( So the cats must find a new home. Here.

Cat Basket
“Cat Basket”
Sarge never used to fill this basket, but now he’s got so big there is beginning to be overspill. He is cultivating a square bottom in order to fill the basket to maximum efficiency.

“Arthur’s Stripes”
Arthur has had a busy but partialy successful morning. At great personal effort, he has stayed still in front of a warm Rayburn for long enough for his stripes to be properly documented. The only slight cloud was that the Archivist got carried away, and went on to unnecessarily document the stripes on the blanket too, and then totally lost the plot and coloured in imaginary white stripes in the background, which rather spoilt the effect. If one cannot trust an Archivist whom can one trust? Perhaps with a few days of resting Arthur will make another attempt to get this job done properly.

  1. Beautiful drawing. Sorry Arthur but the non-cat stripes definitely add to the picture!

    1. Thank you! Inferior stripes merely highlight the quality of his stripes perhaps.

  2. So cozy, love your drawings.

    1. Thank you Sharon πŸ™‚

  3. You describe your cats so beautifully x

  4. Reblogged this on scribblah and commented:
    I love Nancy farmer’s drawings, and especially the cats. Well, I would, wouldn’t I?

    1. Oh thank you Rosie! xx
      And yes, of course you would! hope yours are doing fine πŸ™‚

      1. Yes. Living in the lap of luxury, as ever

  5. Were the complaints from the cats themselves? You know what they’re like πŸ˜‰ These are great – so adorable!

    1. ah, no, from humans, but the cats might have put them up to it. They have trouble writing emails themselves – it’s the little toes, no fingers… πŸ˜‰

  6. Excellent work!

  7. Nice – I can see why you’d get complaints if you don’t supply these regularly. Those are lovely drawings – I like the soft colors and the fun strokes.

    1. thank you πŸ™‚
