As I need to draw a lot of cats, besides getting inspired by my cat at home, it is also interesting to look at how others draw cats.

What do they emphasise? how do they look at cats? It is interesting to see cats appeared in Japanese 浮世絵 Ukiyo-e… and they always appear in a form of human. What do these imply?

Cat’s scratch

Sometimes the purpose of scratching is not purely about sharpening paws. Instead, they purposely leave a highly visible mark and smell repeatedly on particular object. This happened to declawed cats too.

不要以為貓的磨抓行為真的為了修甲。重重覆覆地於家中某幾樣物品抓呀抓 (每間房起碼一件)。目的是為了留下明顯的“我來過了”的痕跡和氣味。貓即使除爪或者單獨飼養,也會有這個行為。就好像我們每到過一個地方都要Facebook Check﹣in 一樣呢!~
