Hair Ball of Love

This doodle may seem a little early, but I wanted to get it out there so that you could have plenty of time to post it on your blog—that is if you were so inclined to do so.

Since I've had some free doodling time on my hands I've just been doing some sketches for the shear fun of it.  For some unknown reason, other than just trying to draw something different, this cat came out the other night.  Then, while realizing that St. Valentine's Day is almost upon us, I decided to try and use it for an appropriate holiday post.  But, the question was, "What does is cartoon feline suppose to be saying?": "You're my little catnip?"  You're the my one and only litter box of love?"  Nothing seemed to work.  AND THEN!... it hit me!  "Hair Ball of Love!"  What more poetic statement could a cat make?  The two, (cats and their hair balls that is) are so connected.  Just like two people in love.

So, it's with a deep appreciation of heart felt love that I release this Copy & Share If You Dare doodle to you, my romance loving blogging friends.  And for the first time I am releasing two different version at once—a total black and white one, and one that has been highlighted with some hints of color.  You must choose.

Why not celebrate to occasion by giving your own little Hair Ball of Love this doodle printed out on a little note on the 14th?  Wouldn't that be special?

I totally love it! I love the colored version! It's so stinkin' cute.

I have to tell you that my precious cat puked up her hair ball about an hour ago. Right now comparing my love to that pile of puke just doesn't quiet fit, but give me time to forget the mess that I just cleaned up!

I can't wait to share this one!

Once again you rock buddy!
