Elmore and I adopted a cat for Valentines Day. Our old cat, Richard, had died just before Christmas, and we were really missing having a lap buddy in the house. Mikey (9 months) is a very welcome addition to our household, and is sitting in my lap now as I type. He doesn't hold still that much, but I love his black and white patterns and want to do some more sketching of him as I can. I've also realized that I never sketch Merlin, so I may be doing some more pet sketches now that Mikey's arrival has jolted me into a couple.
