a daily treat...


My neighbours across the street are an older lady, her large black dog and an eccentric cat. I see this threesome everyday on my way to pick up the girls from the yellow bus. The lady walks the dog on the leash and the cat follows them wherever they go (about a meter behind). It's little comedy... wherever I can get it:)

ah my cat follows me too! I always feel like a crazy lady when I stop and try to get him to go back home! Looks like I'm not the only one about!
Great illustrations...as always! :)

growing up, a stray cat adopted our family. when I went out on walks, he would also follow along. I loved that cat -- this reminds me of him. Did you use fabric for the kitty? Love it!

I love the girl and cat. Could that be the older lady in her youth?

it is the ability to find comedy and beauty in the little things around us, that make our lives richer. Lovely little scene! ♥C

Hehehe that old lady sounds so cute with her furry companions! This print is gorgeous, what a sweet little lady - I love her beret and her spotty stockings.

My cat does that, too. It's a little daredevil-ish considering we have alot of dogs in the neighborhood!

Wonderful illustration. The little bird singing is a nice touch :)
