I had a very poignant dream about cats, I am more of a dog person, but this dream was rather vivid and short. Firstly I remember standing next to a bar or shelf and a cat came up to my legs and began rubbing its body against me, it immediately took my focus ad I thought "oh a cat… and it likes me" then came a second and a third, then I was surrounded by about 10 cats all of different varieties all rubbing around my legs I abruptly awoke but I was left with this overwhelming loving energy and it felt real as if I had just really experience it.
There is definitely a magic to cats, they operate on another level. Some say this cat looks grumpy? Could be because it took a while to complete and perhaps part of my frustration of using a stippling technique which definitely puts a strain on the wrist.
