My name is pussy cat
I sleep during the day
And wander during the night
I have many mates
As many as I can get
They all want to pet me
I'm gorgeous and I know it
They complain and whine
They're always on my back
They want to control me
They should know that
No cat is controllable
I'm free and liberal
I do what I want
They either take me or leave me
It's MY way or the highway

One day, when I'm old
Who knows
Maybe I'll settle down
But as long as I'm young and strong
I will always be free
And live the life that nature has appointed me

Don't get me wrong
It's not easy to be a cat
There's a lot of competition out there
Sometimes we get into fights
And come back home wounded
Our owners are always so glad to see us
They worry about our prolonged absences
They give us love and heal our wounds
We know we have them for granted!
Don't we?!

What if one of these days
My owner kicks me out?!
Naaa, I don't think so, I'm too cute
Nobody can resist me!

I'll post another photo in the WS where the cat is in a wondering pose. Taken on the same occasion.
Thank you for viewing and a very nice weekend to all.

Nice artwork,I like the colors and the textures.Great notes.TFS

Hi Lurdes,

Have been looking again and again - never used this effect - looks great, must be the reviving the colours a lot part of it.
Love the pose of the Cat in the WS as well, there it's more of an "I am the master" kind of pose and here it's the preditor in action.

Well done. Looks like a leaf from a nursery rhyme book. The poem catches the mood. It is absolutely true - they are imperious and unconcerned cats!

Olá Lurdes,
Belíssima edição, um postal muito ternurento.
Belo efeito da moldura está soberbo.
Grande abraço,

Olá Lurdes,

Excelente trabalho de edição e uma bela composição!
Parabéns e OPC.

Hello Lurdes,
This stunning pussy cat must be the one that roams around my house; the kms they travel to mate! Blacky looks as though you caught him in the act…what could he have been up to?
Nice colourful presentation – my style! Let's write a story book!
Thanks for sharing,
