Aby-a-Day – April 7: Kitten Crazies (Cartoon Tuesday)

Everyone knows kittens are cute. But Abyssinian kittens take it to a completely different level.

This cartoon is inspired by Morag Richardson of Eskarina Abyssinians and her Esme’s most recent litter of three little Aby nutcases, Edith, Wilfred and Vera.


The kittens’ full names are: Eskarina Wilfred Owen, Eskarina Edith Cavell and Eskarina Vera Brittain – they were named after a poet. a nurse and a writer from WWI. An interesting thing about these three: Wilfred and Edith were born on 18 February…and then, at 2am on 19 February, little Vera was born!

My cartoon is based on this video…because even I couldn’t make up a kitten turning a tissue box into a go-cart!

But really, the cartoon was inspired by Ann Cook McCall’s comment: “I can’t get over Edith chowing down. I came imagine her cheeks completely full saying, ‘Best day ever!'” So, of course I had to sketch that! And like Topsy, it just grew. Also, a funny thing about the tissue box Wilf is pushing: It’s Tesco Balm Mansized Tissue box!
