Having fun with these cat portraits. These are my sister's cats. Ezio is a Savannah (cross between an African serval and a domestic cat) and Pumpkin is a Siamese.

Today I will tag Julie Rowan-Zoch, a talented illustrator whose doodles and illustrations are so fun.

This is Take Two - with less of a dark outline:
