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