When I was contacted by Amy to commission sleepy-time portraits of her two kitties Itchy and Leroy, I was all in. Considering most of our feline friends prefer to sleep all day (and all night), it only made sense to create a napping series – of course! But when I saw how Itchy preferred her shut eye, I couldn’t help but laugh:
Here’s what Amy has to say about her silly kiddo:
Itchy is our little old lady – and I do mean little. She weighs only about 3 lbs now, but I don’t think she’s ever weighed more than 7 lbs. Her favorite thing is laps, and she seeks out warmth. She is no happier than when she is laying on someone’s lap. Mike and I often look down to all of a sudden realize Itchy is curled up in our lap. She’s so light that we often don’t notice her until she’s on us. Stealthy, that one.
Even though she’s small, she’s tough. She does not take crap from anyone or anything. She absolutely rules our house even though she appears to be the sweetest little old cat.
Thank you, Amy!
