Boss Cat

My friend's rescue-cat Ralphie lost an eye and broke his jaw when he tangled with a car....but don't feel sorry for him.

He's the toughest cat in town. All the other cats—and even the dogs—are terrified of him, and he'll grab the brisket off table if you turn your back for a second.

He looks like a pirate!

I'm glad he is ok.

Named after Ralph Bakshi, perchance?

I had a petite little Siamese cat like that when I was a girl. She thought chasing dogs was fun. Thanks for the memory.

Your drawing reminded me of my old yellow tabby named Tuffy, who used to hop fences & eat from neighbors' dog bowls. He felt his job was to teach every dog a healthy respect for cats. Your post moved me to make my own sketch of Tuffy -- although working from a photograph since I'm afraid Tuffy is long gone. Thanks for the inspiration!

An appropriate quote, Shane, because this guy seems to me like the real-life Greebo.
