I Scratched a Cat

I used to be allergic to cats. Now I live with two cats—one fat and one skinny—and  I don’t have any allergies. I used to have a dog who sang along with opera. I wish I had recorded him singing. Too late.  He was so sweet and serious.

This is a scratchboard drawing of my friend Jerri’s cat.  Sort of. First there was the cave series, followed by the honeymoon pieces.  I think I am going to start an animal series.  I guess I’ve already started.  Many of the decisions that I have made have been accidental.  So far everything has worked out.  More or less.

  1. Hi Mary,
    Thanks so much for sharing your story about Dusty and for your kind words about my drawings.

  2. I have 2 Siamese cats and I am an opera singer (soprano voice). My first Siamese cat (Dusty) was also a singer with a wide range of notes. She never had to get in a physical fight with anything. She could even frighten away a large dog, just with the sound of her powerful voice.
    Your drawings are wonderful.

What do you think?
