Someone mentioned to me that in all the drawings I did of cats when I was a child, the cats are all smiling and happy.
I hadn’t really noticed it, but yes, it does seem to be true. All my cats are very happy.
The dogs…not so much.
It’s not that the dogs I drew never smiled…but they were always on a leash. In this drawing, it looks as though the cat has spare leashes, just in case. I’m not really sure what’s going on there…
I just know that I didn’t relate to dogs at all. We tried to have a puppy for a while, but I didn’t like the way it jumped on me and licked me. I guess I just found dogs too “pushy” and preferred cats’ more reserved attitudes.
