Curiosity Killed The Sketch

A pen travels across paper; a line appears to follow. Curiously growing eyes; anxiously follow its path. Muscles and tendons taught; cat leaps and the sketch is gone.

I could see it, including the little butt-wiggle they do a millisecond before attacking the pen.

I do love those little butt-wiggles. I don't like big ink scratches across my drawing though. It does seem to intrigue cats though. Glad you stopped by.

Brilliant, ML. I have found that it is extremely difficult to photograph cats - sketching them !! LOL they don't make the most patient models. I love your poem.

You have to take lots of photos to sketch from; the don't sit still too often unless they're watching something. Sadly if they're watching me write or sketch; they like to pounce on those fresh lines. Sometimes I draw with ink and...oops! Thanks
