Sunday Sketches (& Giveaway WINNER)

Cats. I love cats. However, I'm extremely allergic to them. I remember playing with them at a friend's house for hours when I was little. For months, I'd leave with swollen eyes and having terrible issues breathing. Finally, after carefully reviewing my activities, the doctors discovered it was the cats. I cried for days when told I could no longer play with the kittens. Awww

Anyway, I don't draw cats often so thought it would be fun to illustrate one this week, incorporating my love for potted plans with it. He turned out quite cute, I must say. What do you think? Do you have cats? Any favorites?

Before venturing off to visit everyone, as promised, I'd like to announce the Sunday Sketches 7-year anniversary winner. After entering everyone's name into the online name generator, the lucky individual is Lisa Isabella Russo!  CONGRATULATIONS, Lisa. Please email me your shipping address so I can send off your fabulous parcel of goodies!

  2. Most adorable cat ever. We had a favorite cat years ago named Rustina. She looked just like your kitty. We miss her.

  3. Love your cat :) And understand your situation. My daughter wanted to ride on horses and came home just like what you describe. No animals around her and she was devastated.
    Have a nice week. Your cat won´t make you sick :)

  4. So sorry I missed the Sunday Sketches anniversary week but big Congratulations to Lisa on winning the Giveaway...WHOO HOO!

    Your cat and potted plant illustration is adorable, Alexandra! I never really had much to do with cats growing up. My parents were not cat people so I think I'm more of a dog person by default because we always had dogs in the family when we were growing up. Such a shame you were allergic to cats though. I would have cried too.

    On another note, just letting you know that the link you have provided for the 'NEW Sunday Sketches button' in this post is an old one and it goes to a 'This page does not exist' page.

    Happy Sunday Sketches! :)

  5. I love cats ... I have four so I am bordering on the "crazy cat lady" syndrome :) Our cats are all rescues, not from a shelter but from strays that have been dumped in our neighborhood by people who don't care or people who couldn't take care of them anymore. Two were actually born in my closet ... the mother was a rescue and we found her and one brother a home. My neighbor and I have placed multiple cats after we had them checked out and spayed or neutered which ever was required. It is ongoing as we live in a unincorporated area where people feel safe dumping their cats ... and dogs , sadly :( Anyway, three of my kitties look like your drawing so I am drawn to it ... Love all your artwork.

  8. He looks so sweet sitting beside the flower pots. Its a beautiful sketch. We have only ever had one cat, it is dogs for us. The cat however was quite a character and often brought unwanted gifts home... Mice and birds... don't get upset they were always alive and caused endless problems getting them out of the house.

  12. So sweet! A ginger kitty like my Jingles who will be 13 next month. I always had cats and dogs growing up. My oldest boy is 21 and even though Jingles is his cat that we got from a friend of his when he was in 3rd grade, since he went away to college, he's actually become allergic. He figured it out the first time he came back for winter break and had some outbreaks when he would play with cats that belong to his college friends. Very strange since he grew up with Jingles for many years. Now when he's home, he limits time with her. :(

  18. Love your cat! So adorable. How awful about your allergy! That's not fair. I'm a cat person too, and I'm hoping to have one again once day.
