This is my first participation for Illustration Friday. It's based on our cat Louie who sadly is no longer with us. He was quite famous in these parts for being the fierce ginger feline that lived up the hill. The dog walkers who knew him well kept their pets on tight lead when they saw him. Those who didn't were in for a nasty surprise when out of the hedge would leap a lion in domestic cat disguise! He gave many a small dog a bleeding nose and had a habit of clinging on to the backs of the bigger breeds! In the comfort of home, of course, the lion became a kitten!


  1. What a nice kitty! Hard to believe she could be fierce... So sad she's not with you any more.

  2. Wonderful illustration! Love your 'simplicity' painting as well. Welcome to IF-- look forward to seeing more of your work.

  3. What a cutie! You really portrayed his character well! I can see you love him and miss him. I love cats too, especially orange ones :D

  4. Thanks so much for your comments.
    I'm hoping to try and join in with IF as much as possible.
    Yes I still miss our old warrior of a kitty, but he lived to a ripe old age
    of almost 17, so he had a good life :)

  5. Hi Karen. I found you via Rima. I am so delighted I peeped in this door! I lovelovelove what I see and will definitely be back again. And again.

  6. Hello again! Of course you can add me to your blogroll, I hope it's ok if I do the same!

    I have two big little people who have moved on to Harry Potter (which I also love!) and two little ones who are still in fairyland. Mayday and Imbolc/St Brighid's day (Feb1/2) are when we leave out gifts for the fairies. I am savouring it... they grow so fast.


Thanks so much you for leaving me a comment.
It's great to hear from you! :-)
