Even when a cat does something extremely undignified, such as getting stuck in a box that’s too small for them, or dragging their tail through honey (and yes, this has happened in our house; just one more reason not to let kitty sit on your lap while you eat), when all is said and done, they waltz regally from the room, with their tail waving like a banner, as though nothing untoward had happened. And later, when you laughingly tell someone all about it, you notice the cat looking at you as if to say, “I have NO idea what you’re talking about.”
Simon Tofield is an English animator who has caught this haughty personality trait that seems universal to all cats. He has also captured their silliness, cunning, constant fear of starvation (come on, cat owners, you know what I’m talking about) and loving nature – all through art. Simon has a great interest in British wildlife, painting, the great outdoors and of course cats, of which has four: Hugh, Maisie, Jess and Teddy. His comic strip, “Simon’s Cat,” runs in the U.K., but he has also published two books and several short animated films. Everything “Simon’s Cat” can be found on the Simon’s Cat home-page. If you’ve never met Simon’s Cat before, trust me – he can help you de-stress, relax, and prepare for a fabulous weekend!
