Lately I've noticed that I am surrounded by people who are passionate about cats. I had to muffle my own childhood affection for cats for the sake of my husband and kids, all of whom have serious asthma and cat allergies.
But under the influence of the aforementioned cat fanatics, my old affections are stirring again. Well, I don't think etegami ever gave anyone an asthma attack, so these days I'm expressing that affection more and more in cat paintings. The last two are the latest additions to my Eliot's Cats series which gets its inspiration from Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats by T.S.Eliot, the basis for the musical CATS.
