Cat for Guillaume .... Cat #4
approx. 5" x 7" of a cat perched on a windowsill, drawn using a stump loaded with charcoal dust from another drawing which made very soft, almost elusive marks... characteristics I think of in a cat.
...excerpt below from "Everything Cats Expect You To Know" by Elizabeth Martyn, pub. 2007
"Cats are never as keen to respond to praise as dogs, because they evolved Not as pack animals,
but as solitary hunters, for whom food was the only reward worth having.
Lone wildcats didn't need to develop social skills and were content to walk by themselves.
Even so, when the opportunity for easier life presented itself, they were quick to make the most of it."
