What is that cat up to?


“Never look down to test the ground before taking your next step; only he who keeps his eye fixed on the far horizon will find the right road.”
– Dag Hammarskjöld

What is that cat up to?


I think he’s yawning, feigning boredom, to lure that mouse into a false sense of security.  Or maybe he’s an opera singing cat… serenading that mouse.  He is in Bethville, afterall.  😀


About Dag Hammarskjöld

Dag Hammarskjöld, a Noble Peace Prize winner, was a diplomat who strengthened the United Nations’ peacekeeping mission. Born in Sweden in 1905, he followed his father’s footsteps into national government, where he coined the term “planned economy” before becoming a delegate to the U.N. and a two-time secretary-general. He negotiated the release of Americans captured by the Chinese in the Korean War, worked to resolve the Suez Canal crisis, and was on a mission to the Congo when his plane crashed in 1961, killing all aboard.

    Haha, great personality! I really like this. I think the white space is really effective in this one, especially how the tail makes such a nice shape. 😀
