A cat named mouse

This is my little 3lb cat named Tikus, which is the word for mouse in Indonesian. She is probably the only cat in Bali who is spayed, gets shots and meds from Dr Kadek who makes house calls on her motorbike and sleeps in AC all day long.

Most evenings are spent cleaning up after a day of sleeping. She will be with us until we leave in January and then she will go back in her rice cooker box and take that 1/2 ride on the motorbike back to Umales with Uul. I think she's really Uul's cat and he thinks she's mine. Hmmmmmmm.

Love the cat sketches. And the line about the people on the beach and the equator cracked me up.

The picture of Tikus washing herself is so great - you capture the essence of 'cat' in this sketch! And those beautiful colours...!

The cat watercolors are wonderful. Your talent shows.

I always love your animal sketches! The vertical leg is true but funny. I'd like to see how ownership of the cat would be argued out in court. Quite the ownership quandary. And would the cat view it as he has two subordinates?

Great kitty poses! Love how loose and free your watercolors are.

Mouse looks like one happy pussycat. I especially like the sketch of her with the leg in the air, ready to groom.
