Aby-a-Day – December 9: Cat Collectives (Cartoon Tuesday)

A couple of months ago, I was asked to do some illustrations for a piece my friend Iris wrote for CFA’s Cat Talk magazine.

The article proposed names for groups of specific breeds of cats, including a Streak of Abyssinians, an Insistence of Burmese, a Salon of LaPerms, an Abbreviation of Manx, a Summit of Himalayans, a Tartan of Scottish Folds, a Wail of Siamese, a Gulf of Tonkinese, and a Convoy of Turkish Vans.

I drew groups of Devon Rexes, Balinese and, since I couldn’t come up with a good idea for “Streak,” Somalis.

It’s kind of fun to draw other breeds – or, at least, different colours and patterns!
