Paul Klee, Cat and Bird, 1928, oil on canvas, MoMA
Today is the birthday of my favorite artist, Paul Klee (pronounced Clay).
Here we have quintessential cat, with oversized oval eyes, heart-shaped nose, and bird on the brain.
And for poetry friday a cat poem by Eleanor Farjeon:
Cats Sleep Anywhere
Cats sleep anywhere, any table, any chair.
Top of piano, window-ledge, in the middle, on the edge.
Open draw, empty shoe, anybody's lap will do.
Fitted in a cardboard box, in the cupboard with your frocks.
Anywhere! They don't care! Cats sleep anywhere.
