Bad Kitty

He begs with large, watery eyes. Begging, but assertive none-the-less. Can't you see I'm hungry and cold, he seems to say, you're a nice person. Let me inside right now. He is a pretty cat. Shiny, sleek. We almost forget what he's done, but an anti-welcome mat backdrop serves as a not-so-subtle reminder of his true and inescapable nature. We acknowledge him, give a sympathetic glance or two, but leave the door shut.


  1. This is great.
    I like the two tone eyes and the offset geometry of your composition.

    We once opened the door to an aged, toothless, homeless, tortoise-shell that proved to have a seizure disorder (brought on by tapping a spoon on the dish to get the rest of the cat food off-- of all things; took us a while to figure that out.)
    We had to put her down when we caught her writing bad checks.
