sunday sketches :: play lily

Another sketch of Lily. You never know what’s going to happen when you take in a stray. We got lucky with this one. She’s a character!!

She’s demanding when her food bowl is empty. Or full. Or somewhere in between.

She’s cuddly. When she wants to be.

She’s playful with everyone. Especially the dog.

But she’s also a bit crazy. Well, more like a lot crazy.

She howls during the night. Is some alien Mothership calling her??

She runs like a lunatic through the house every morning. Is some imaginary dog chasing her?

She likes to sleep on my head. Always has. It drives me bananas! I chase her away and she comes right back. Why does she do this?

Anyway, in spite of all her craziness, we do love her a bunch.

Sharing with Sunday Sketches. Sorry, I haven’t been replying to your sweet comments. I DO visit your blogs though. I hope that’s ok. Some days it gets a bit hectic here.

  4. LOL I totally get it! I had a stray that liked to sleep on my head too. :-/

  5. very cute :) if only this happened in real life :)

  6. It's so charming to read about Lily and I love this illustration! Lilly would make a great character in a funny picture book. I'm sure not only children would have so much fun because Lilly is doing what nobody is allowed to do.

  7. What a fantastic illustration! Lily sounds like a joyous handful. I have two rescue dogs who are sweet and hilarious, but Lord, they are completely insane.

  8. Well hello Lily. What a fantastic fun illustration.
    It's my first visit to your place and have had such a giggle hearing all about the antics, especially sitting on the head. We had a cat once that loved to sit on shoulders!

  9. Adorable! Thanks for last Sunday Sketches visit.
