Cat Art Sunday - Krazie Katsky

Now here is a very unique and treasured piece of cat art!
This was done by Mosaic Lady's great-uncle Bob. He lives at the Veteran's Home in Yountville, CA. (That's in Napa. Glug Glug.)
He is Grama Emma's "baby brother" and must be in his mid-to-late 80s.
He sent it to us a bit before Christmas. We had no idea he was an artist! ML is going to frame it to hang in her studio.

"Unk Bob", as he has always referred to himself, is a very unique man. He never married and has no children. He is a devout Catholic who observes all of the rituals and sacraments. He is a very quiet, kind and gentle person.
ML is a lot like him, except for the quiet, kind, gentle, devout Catholic parts.

He apparently found the inspiration for his drawing in the little Tabby sticker, but I think it looks a lot like goofy Sadie. He signed it:
R.T.K. 07/07/07

And then he wrote:
"I dun it wit me too widdle hanz."
Sounds like a cat blogger in the making!

That's a fabulous drawing by the ML's Uncle Bob. :) It reminds our mom of the Cheshire Cat from the animated version of Alice in Wonderland! :)
