a purple cat!

so purple...

Why purple? Well, I don’t really know, but I like it! Besides, it’s been too long since I drew a cat so here you are – a purple cat doing cat things…

UPDATE: New poem just in from Tom apropos my purple cat – enjoy!

Eggplant is so elegant
in his morning stretches
fastidious in grooming, not
so much in hairball retches

Enpurpled like a poet’s cow
not red like purple finches
still he has his dignity
though sometimes purple pinches

A little bit of his respect
as fingers point and waggle
and so he turns his purple back
on those who gawk and gaggle.

For Eggplant knows he’s living well
atop the karmic heap
so having stretched and groomed and posed
he curls back up to sleep!

    Fun images, and great name, Max! Eggplant is now the name of Marlowe’s cat, I think, short for “SIR Stretchy Eggplant-Bottom”!
