Perhaps I’m in the minority, but I, for one, think this is drawn perfectly! To me, it conveys very clearly the whole “fur ball” process, yet retains its cuteness and adorability. That’s not an easy thing to do! I like the eyes and the paws. How do you all see it so differently from Sophie’s empty-circle eyes and paws?
Again, maybe I’m an approving audience of one, but it does seem to me that lately, everyone has a serious case of nit-picking going on. Perhaps reacting to change is a little tough, but let’s just be patient and enjoy the evolution of the strip and these new characters. I am not a “cat person” per se, but I think these two kittens are cute and full of personality…and show great promise as supporting characters.
