Evan quickly came to regret allowing this mom lady here to help with his selfies, though. You see, not only did he soon find his ear cut slightly off in the above photo, but in the next one pretty much his entire ear was cut off. Not to mention, his paws also wanted to be in the selfie, but his mom's camera skills cut them right on out too.
Evan hopes all of you kitty friends of his have a way better photography assistant than him. You just can't find good help these days, can you?
Happy Sunday to all!
Doodle of the Day: Flashback Sunday
If I'm being honest, doodling up beach scenes like the one above is not one of my most favorite ways to pass my daily art time. I'm simply not a beach sort of person. I'm not too keen on sand, or salt water, or bodies of water in general, or just plain beaches. I'm thinking that's one reason why this year's Christmas in July doodles are in a completely different style than last year's. That, and I didn't want to just recreate all of last July's festive fun. There are still elements of Christmas in this year's summer festivities, and there still are elements of warm weather such as that common to July, but so far it doesn't look like there will be any new Christmas in July beach scenes this time around. I think you'll see what I mean when I share tomorrow's festive summer doodle.

Did you know that Japan has more than one island known for its cat residents? One Japanese island is even known as "Cat Island", with the official name of Aoshima. This island is inhabited by roughly a dozen humans but at least 120 cats. The residents of the human sort feed and generally care for the cats. Another cat island in Japan is called Toshiro-jima, and it contains roughly 100 human residents but over 100 cat residents. Again, the human residents of course feed the kitties. It is also reported that Toshiro-jima does not allow dogs, for the cats' sake. Yet another Japanese island known to be a cat-centric island is Manabeshima, with a decent population of friendly cats who frequently greet visitors. These Japanese cat islands first acquired their feline inhabitants for a variety of reasons, such as reducing the rodent population, and for good luck that the Japanese inhabitants often believe cats can bring about.
