Tapirulan Illustration Contest and more!

Apologizes to everyone for the small hiatus! Life has been rather hectic ever since Heather's brother and boyfriend arrived. Our days have been choc-a-bloc with whirlwind tours to far off places, late night games of rummy over beer, wine and milk (for me!), and cat naps that carry on into the early hours of the afternoon. (To be fair, for me, lengthy naps are all part and parcel of the daily routine, but to see a house of humans sleep in until 1 p.m. is something to marvel at!)

Heather has also denied me a pawload of time on the computer as she is preparing for some kind of illustration competition that ends in September. I think she called it Tapirulan and apparently the illustration you create has to deal with the theme of 'privacy.'

Sheesh, I could tell you ALL about privacy, my friends! How about...don't stare when the cat of the house is giving himself a tongue bath? Or what about...stay out of the room when you hear your kitty shuffling around in the sand pit? Anyway, she seems to know what she is doing, and if things couldn't get any more exciting, the awards ceremony takes place in Italy of all places! Have a look below at the rough sketch Heather's got prepared so far...

To end off, here are some cuddly kitties that Heather and I managed to catch on camera over the past few days!
