  1. Oh I do believe I’ve seen that very expression on a certain ginger cat who lives here with me……thankfully not very often but once in a while he’s NOT happy with me…….Love the painting!


  2. I’ve seen that cat around here on rare occasions. Wonderful how something so simple can say so much.

  3. This is a little off-topic . . . . but one of my most cherished childhood memories is of summers spent on Hemlock Point, at the shores of Walloon Lake in northern Michigan, USA. Wikipedia says: “It is thought that a group of Walloons from Belgium settled the land at the north end of the lake, which was then called Bear Lake. No trace of this settlement has ever been found.” Back in my day it was a peaceful, heavenly quiet place. But, later, my brother’s in-laws built a huge house there, and now Wiki says it’s all developed. I have not been back there since and I bet, as they say, “you can’t go home again.” My brother’s in-laws originally came from Belgium. Random but interesting connections to Belgium and a long-forgotten childhood.

    • Thank you for this interesting and captivating comment, Anita. This is not at all off-topic. Fun to read you got a Belgian connection, kinda… And, you’re also connected to Mr. Bowie!

  4. I had this in my house Sunday morning!!! (Nickel Catmium doesn’t like my beau’s cat Miss Lilly and behaved like the cat in the picture, then peed on the bath mat.)

  5. Mom says that’s exactly how Fiona looks when she is getting her subQ fluids. Not really, but it is how she acts. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
