Kitten # 2 (illustrated by Anna Hybsier)

In Dream Of A Thousand Cats, the storyteller cat tells a tale of how she dreamed of change. The storyteller cat started out as any other cat, comfortable and taken care of by her humans…until the day she had kittens.

She was a pure-bred Siamese cat and the father of the kittens was a stray Tom Cat and so the kittens were not pure bred and were not “worth diddly-squat” to her humans. Her owner put the kittens in a bag with a rock tied to weigh it down and threw the bag into a pond.

It was at this point that the Storyteller cat decided to try to make a change for her and her kind.

This is one of the kittens. This kitten appears in Sandman # 18, on page 8, in panel 3.

Anna’s portrait of this kitten is absolutely adorable. I love the playful and cuteness of this kitten, especially given the kitten’s unfortunate and horrible fate. This is an absolute sweet and loveable portrait.
