Cats have been my favorite animal since i was like, five.
Appearantly "i love cats! :3" somehow translated to
"Give me hamsters! :D" by my family. Because i never had a cat. Only hamsters.. i dont mind, ive liked my hamsters. But seriously...

    lmao! Aww.. Well we ended up with so many cats because my mom wasn't allowed pets growing up so she made sure we had plenty growing up. Long story short, you can do whatever you want when you got your own place! :meow: Cats are lovely animals.

I'm literally going to take over the world with an army of cats now that I have learned how to exploit them.

I don't even have a cat, but I like drawing them. Hopefully this might help add some more expression in their faces :3

Is there a part 2? (Since it says part 1 I figured...)
Reply
:iconzachdoug:
ZachDoug Featured By Owner Jul 24, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
    There was a part 2 but it was about the names of different colourations of cats and their breeds. The names turn out to vary a lot from U.S. state to state, even city to city, and especially country to country, language to language, so a bunch of arguing ensued and it turned out to not be very useful.

I see... Is it still posted? Because help with colors and breeds would be especially useful. I'm no good with fur color.

I love this a lot because it's the only tutorial I've seen that draws parallels between humans and cats and it helped me understand cats better. :) Thank you!
