Mirror, Mirror on the wall. You are reflecting six cats. But I'd prefer none at all.

I almost posted one of my Snow White self portraits for the www.illustrationfriday.com mirror theme.  Mirror, mirror on the wall.  Who is fairest of them all?  Not me.  So I decided to post my Bedroom Buddies.  This is one of my favorite cat illustrations.  I have it hanging in my bedroom.  But when I look in the mirror I do see a mistake.  I forgot to put the molding along the floor boards.   Cat crap!  Other than that it is almost exactly the way my bedroom used to look.  The dresser we inherited from my husband's side of the family.  And the cherished antique headboard dates back to the Civil war.  And it has been on my Mom's side of the family the ever since. 

The cats on the other hand are fiction.  But the real life shenanigans of my two cats are not.  If we didn't keep our cat-astrophes locked out at night they would give us a new definition for night terrors.  Trust me. 

P.S.  Have you clawed your way over to see my latest illustrated recipe?  Click for cat treats!

I just love your work. This one must be from the same series as the one of cats in the bathroom. Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment. I've illustrated a couple of children's books I wrote, but have never gotten published. Blessings!

A great piece Sharon! You had me for second on the six cats. We have four and I can't even imagine six!
