#sketch: Pomponette

5 Oct

Pomponette is a sweet female cat that lives in the neighbourhood. I don’t know if she has a home or just owns the neighbours instead. Pomponette is how we call her; the neighbor calls her Mimine.

She showed up in our garden, I remember, Adrien had been born only a few weeks or so. She’s friendly albeit a little wary. And she shows up most days. She likes very much to be petted but will not settle on anyone’s knees or be held. There is a lot in her face, size and built that reminds me of Emu, my own cat, who’s been gone more than a year now, so Pomponette does linger now. This is nice.

Yesterday we found her curled in an empty flower pot, sleeping in the morning sun. As she heard my approaching foot steps, she raised a cocked head, before yawning and stretching.

Made on paper (12×12 cm) with Pentel Brush Pen, charcoal and white, brown and terra cotta pastels..
