Catouflage in action!
Cat camouflage photo by Hannah Sterry.

This is a photo of my cat, Mouse, from back when she was only a year or two old. True to her name, she’s small and timid, but she’s really affectionate and reliably appears at the sound of a cat food tin being opened!

 

Mouse was the only grey kitten in a litter of mostly black kittens and her mum didn’t seem to like her very much (her mum used to remove Mouse from the litter and dump her in the middle of the floor somewhere else), so we ended up giving her cat milk and weaning her on to food a bit early. She’ll usually come over if you click your fingers because that’s what I used to do just before I gave her kitten biscuits.

 
Hope the picture made you smile and feel free to link me to pictures/blog posts of your cats doing funny, cute and amusing things in the comments! I might link to some of my favourites in next week’s #caturday blog. 🙂

 

 

It’s PC gone mad, I tell you!

"It's PC gone mad, I tell you!" by Sterry Cartoons. Cartoon requested by Bilgeboy Bob.
“It’s PC gone mad, I tell you!” by Sterry Cartoons. Cartoon requested by ‘Bilgeboy Bob’.

Last week I asked people to send in their requests for Sterry Cartoons on Facebook and here’s the first completed cartoon!

This particular request was from ‘Bilgeboy Bob’, who suggested:

A crossed eyed cartoon computer with tongue hanging out, jumping up and down – caption “It’s PC gone mad, I tell you!”

I think I got most of it, except the jumping up and down part. I really enjoyed drawing the ridiculous expressions! 😛

Fathers’ Day Feature

This bit of the post is a few days late. My dad drew me this cartoon on Fathers’ Day and made me smile, so I thought I’d share it with you too. If you ever need a cool saxophonist or someone to quote amusing bits of Jasper Carrot and Blackadder, he’s the guy to ask!

Anyway, I’d better get on with drawing the next of my silly cartoons. This time the suggestion is from Pete Foreman, who had a load of brilliant requests:

A knapsack with sleeping cats in it? An old fashioned telephone that, instead of a number wheel, has an eye in the centre of it (an iPhone)? In a similar vein, a pocket watch? A handbag?

Hopefully I’ll manage to complete one of them tonight! x
