Gimme Mah Kittie by Everyday-Grind-Comic Gimme Mah Kittie by Everyday-Grind-Comic
Ben- Hello everyone!

This is a long, VERY long overdue conest prize to :iconpiginpjs:

A while back, she won first place in a group contest, for an April Fools joke themed comic! For her prize, she asked me for a picture of 2 babies fighting over a cat. No problem, I said! Only to realize that I had no clue on how to draw babies! I asked if I could use the EG crew to help ease the process along.

Mercifcully, my wife was there to help! Having never drawn a baby before, she had a remarkable knack in how to tell me to make them. Granted, these two are a bit older than newborn babies, but babies they are, nonetheless!

I hope you like it! And congrats! Your entry was awesome! :clap::clap::clap:

Now, this picture has nostalgic value to it as well. The fat, VERY fat cat in there is an homage to an old cat of mine, named Matthew.

Matthew was my very first animal. He was 2 years old when I was born, my parents bought him for my sister when she was born. He was the most wonderful cat a family could ask for. He was gentle, loving, and put up all of our shit, with nary a complaint. My sister and I loved him like a brother, he was just so wonderful. He was fat, all his life, and we called him "Fatty Matty", lol! I remember he used to sleep on the heat vents, and the entire room would be cold, because he wouldn't let the hot air through! :XD:

I grew up with Matthew. He was there from the moment I was born, until I was 17 years old. 19 years, he lived, that is a LONG freakin' time! Even though we all know what happens, nothing can prepare you for the day it comes to finally let them go. He was my best friend, he was a brother, he was a son to me.

He was also the first friend to who I had to say goodbye.

Even now I get teary eyed, as I write this, because no matter how long I live, I will always miss him. But it is times like this that I like to remember him. This picture represents him as he was with my sister and I, we always used to fight over who got to see him first.

It represents who he would be now, as Erika and I joking steal the cats away from eachother.

It represents as he would be in the future, because my furture children will know the love that an animal can bring to your life.

More than anything, it represents the joy that owning a cat can bring, or any pet for that matter. It is a joy that everyone should feel, because everyone should feel the unconditional love and loyalty that they bring, even if just for a while.

So grab your cat, dog, whatever, and cherish every moment you have with them! Even if you have to steal them from another family member :XD:

I know, you feel like there's this big empty part in you.

They aren't there to greet you in the morning, they aren't there to suffocate you when you sleep, they aren't they're to claw at your feet when they're hungry... XD

JKJKJK, just wanted to lighten the mood, I don't anyone to feel bad... D8

oh, and thank you so much for all the new favs! :woohoo:

heheheh! Well I can't take all the credit! I drew them as their adult selves, then shrunk them down to little toddlers. My wife, who paints but doesn't paint people, watched over my shoulder and directed me how to make them look like babies! She was uncannily good it, it was frightening! But she had a point, babies are all heads, and what is left over is fat :XD:

Oh Matthew would LOVE a nap! preferably over a heat vent, lol :meow:

Because Figs as a duckling would make me smile :iconchuuplz: I also want to make a version of this with them as adults! It would be pretty much how we live and look now, stealing the cats away from one another :XD:

Go ahead! jamie needs a huggle right now...:cry: her fat cat buddy has been stolen away from her...

Yeah, the little bow was Erika's idea. She was wearing her little hat, but it made her look too old, so Erika told me to make a bow with a spit-curl in it. adorable!!!

Lol, I hope to do more baby art soon! plus I want to do a version of this when the 2 are adults, I think it will be cute! :aww:

thank you so much for reading, Elina! I am fine, don't worry :aww: that was 8 years ago, and I still had 2 more animals to go home to. Those 2 have also passed on, but I have 3 cats now! :nod:

I will always have animals in my life, they bring me too much joy not to! But the pain in losing one will never leave, no matter how long I live. But it is that pain that reminds me that to feel it, I had to have had many amazing years with them filled with love and joy. That is life, because to feel bad means that we have felt really good at some point. I will never forget him, or any of them, and that means that in a way, they will all be with me forever :cuddle:

Awww, its like "Things never changed" XDDDD Great idea! Hope to see soon!

It's good! And it's great to have kitties at home! I wish I could pet much more animals, but I'm pretty enough with troubles my Lucy causes and having her is a joy!

Animals are like your friends and recently- part of family. Lucy is my first cat ever and I'm so happy to have her! She is the first, who meets me when I am back, last who says "Good Night" in her style. I'm happy to have her and I don;t want to think of what will happen to me, when one day she'll die. I believe I'll cry alot. ;_;
But hey, she's only 7 years. Mom says, cats can live up to 20 years, and my one of friend's cat loved up to 36 years! O_O

awwwwww, Lucy sounds soooooooo cute!!!! You should post pictures of her on here! But yes, for a cat, she is still a youngin'! Cats mercifully live to be much older than dogs! Your mom is 100% correct. cats on average live around 17-18 years, and commonly live to 20-21. 36 is CRAZY!!! That is an oooooooooold cat! lol!

I have had 7 cats in my life. Pancake, Sam and Mistral are still with us. Leo was Erikas cat when I met her, and he died at 3 years old due to health problems. Simon, Chad, and Matthew were my childhood cats. Matthew, who you know about, died at 19 because of diabetes. Chad died at 19 also to diabetes. Simon died at 4 because of a fight he got into with a wild animal :(

but the good news is that no matter how long you live, you will never forget them, or all they do. Lucky thing we have such a long and wonderful time with them! I just love kitties so much! :love:
