Toliet Buddies



This whimsical illustration was inspired by life with my naughty cats. Acua (alias...Cougar and Chewy) is the one dangling the dental floss. He's an expert at breaking into the medicine cabinet and knocking off a few unmentionables. Now if only he could actually learn to floss his teeth right? Hana (alias... Froggie and little Aquatic) is the one popping out of the bubble bath. Punishment, as in cat meets squirt bottle. Forget about it! She loves the water. But she would never give herself a real bath. Only because she would expect her servant (me) to do it for her. And my now departed Baby is the devil/angel floating in the window. Regarding a cat like Baby, it might be a little presumptuous to only paint wings on the fiesty critter. So without knowing which way she went I added the horns as well!

Wow, your artwork is all really good. I like the detail, all there is to look at and examine, so much going on. This one is especially really good I think. Your cats are so cute too! I've had cats before. Don't have have one currently. They are just little balls of joy.
