watercolor aceo 9/2013

A rather stately cat. Perhaps from English artistocracy. Also a bit sinister…just a bit. It is hard to tell with cats just what they are up to……

  1. Love the slightly dangerous name and look of this cat! No matter how well you know one, you never really know what it is thinking.

  2. “Mmmmm….nice lady…good for scratching, and if it were smaller, I could eat it….” or something like that. 🙂

  3. Moriarty just doesn’t seem to be inspiring warm fuzzies amongst the viewing community. I think he looks a bit sinister and that’s why he carries the name. Never know what will show up on the paper.

    • Calculating his own best interests, at any rate. Cats are sometimes like that. I once observed a formerly feral cat, won over to domestic life by my mother (a natural born lion-tamer), lunge straight up into the air, aiming unmistakably for her carotid artery (he was enraged because she would not allow him to fight with her other cat). In mid-air he reconsidered. You could see the little gears turning, it all happened in a split second: wait…it’s warm, dry, lots of food, and well, she does seem to care….. With the slightest turn of his body, he skewed his aim, and landed harmlessly nearby, cavalierly sauntering off, as if a random leap into midair at human eye-level was just what he’d intended! But having seen it with my own eyes, there has never been any question in my mind that his original, moment-of-passion intent was to attack her. The very embodiment of your “Moriarty.” 🙂

  4. It is hard to tell … He could be as soulful as a monk or as crafty as a warlock … maybe both … we can never tell until we get to them.
