Cats are wonderful models because they mostly ignore you and remain as they are when you walk up with a camera or sketch book.  Meeps is my daughter’s cat that came to live with me when she moved across the country. I was reluctant to take him at first because we’d just lost an elderly cat and I didn’t want to get involved with another so soon. However, he quickly stole my heart and has been a great source of ideas for artwork.  Like a born model he tends to pick sitting areas with great lighting.
