This is such a fun cat drawing. There are 5 black and white cats. Two black kitties appear to have found a large fish. Three other cats more patiently wait for their supper in front of their food bowls. This would be a fun image to give to a young child to write a story about. The book in which it was published tells the story that the two kitties are going to steal the fish and will be punished by not getting to sleep by the fireplace that night. Overall, it’s a charming drawing and one that could easily be turned into two separate cat drawings.
