I seem to be encountering cats today,and this is such a beautiful and sensitive drawing of one.In fact,charcoal seems the perfect medium to depict this gentle black and white beauty.Alert and "watchful" indeed.Very lovely animal picture as always Ken. The whiskers are wonderfully done too! L/F

Thank you for such a beautiful comment as this Jane.

Massillon, OH - United States

Beautiful detailed drawing. Nice capture of the watchful expression F/L

Ken Day replied:

Thank you Marcia! As far as detail go the white whiskers on this cat aren't added on in white. They are the result of the absence of charcoal. Not the way most artists would choose to create whisker as it demands a lot of skill and patience to master.

Love this one Ken ... got my v/f along with a share on FB. We have 3 feral cats we care for and they are so cool. Feral cats are different from domesticated because the kittens are not handled by humans at birth. Thanks to Temptations cat treats we have trained these cats to allow us to touch them! We call the Temptations cat treats "Spuddies" ... because enough is never enough. enjoy your day, Ken!

Thank you all for your wonderful comments. I really appreciate all of them. Melissa this drawing took me about 2 1/2 -3 hours to do. Do to all the fine fur. Some of it very hard to see with out using the green square to making it bigger.

Olive Branch, Ms - United States

Thanks Ken. Glad I found your site. This is so detailed and amazing. It must have taken you a long time to get the fur so accurate.

Puggy is Tom cat. He has fought many battles and won many fights. His ears show some of the battes he has fought. But that as close as they can for he not wounded any where less. He has had many challengers and they all bare his mark. That is those cats brave anuff to face him one on one. Most chose to run before he gets to them. Best to run away to fight again another day when it comes to Puggy. That fearless old Tom cat. His great grandkids think his a old softy and use him as a pillow. Or mayby they jest feel safer sleeping beside him.
