Contented, fat, well-fed cats everywhere!
I remarked on this to my painting classmate, Louis, a genteel old Dutch man. “Well,” he said after a thoughtful pause. “You know how it is. These houses are full of old women. And you know about old women and their cats.”
I could have played with these kitties all afternoon, but then I remembered I had some painting to do.
My favorite was this adorable orange-and-white kitty stretched out on top of an old brick wall. She was snoozing contentedly in the sun and looked perfect against the fluffy white clouds and crisp blue sky.
She must have sensed the little old lady in me, because she woke up for a cuddle when I walked up to her.
Even Dutch cats seem to know better than to waste a single ray of sunshine!
