If anyone guessed "eared nightjar" you were correct. Threw in some tabby markings to make it a bit more interesting. Went a bit heavy on textures, but I definately didn't want this guy to seem flat. Shading... is still the bane of my existence when trying to make it kinda soft.
ANYWAY I was looking through my old picture from long ago and look what I found!! my little baby girl as a little baby bean!!
it's going to be two years since we found her and her mama in our overgrown garden (and a also certain little kitten abandoned in the woods that's grown up big, strong, and with an attitude after weeks of nerve-wracking bottle-feeding and fretting!!) in july!!
Do you think cats ever wonder why we don't purr? Do you think they ever worry because of it? Do we manage to clearly communicate to them when we're happy?
Research done thinks they are able to learn how individual owners respond and how to tell if you, specifically, are happy. There's debate on if they can understand completely or understand a stranger's expression/tone, but cats are social creatures and in newer studies most social creatures have so far proved to be smarter and more empathetic then most of the old studies misinterperated them to be!
