Calm Cat-astrophe, number. 3

"Calm 'n Composed," Cat-astrophe series No. 3, 140 lb Fabriano Artisitico extra white cold press
You can afford to be calm in catastrophes if you have your senses about you.
Just because your ears  pick up the most delicate of sounds, and your eyes are sharp and focused on every movement, doesn't mean you're not calm.
You're alert, and always prepared to instantly react if need be, but there's no need for worry, because you know you always land on your feet.
No wonder the Egyptians, and others, considered you a god...a superior being in calm control.
Amid the catastrophes of pandemic and racism, we have much to learn from our feline creatures.
Thus today's watercolor, number three of the calm cat-astrophe series.
