My friends in Lawrence, Kansas, love cats and share their lives with at least two at any given time. When I visited Kansas in my "Great Midwestern Tour" of year 2000, they had with them "Digital" and "Analog," along with a couple other felines placed with them by owners who couldn't keep them any more. I had my sketchbook with me and did sketches of the cats. "Digital" was a gelded male part-Maine Coon who had a hilarious repertoire of tricks that kept us amused. "Analog" was a fierce little feline female who was rescued from hard times to live in a loving family. The images on the upper left are of fluffy Digital, whose sense of space was somewhat more-than-three-dimensional. The cat on the lower right is Analog.
Digital ran away, but Analog remains with my friends. She is still fierce but is now well-advanced in age. They added another Maine Coon to the household, a neutered male named "Zip," after the briefly flourishing "Zip Drive" which for a year or so rivaled the CD in data storage. There is plenty of cat hair, plenty of computers too.
