Let’s Be Friends

‘Furry friends can hide in all sorts of spaces, their tails curled softly beneath them as they purr in silence. Once my cat was sound asleep beneath my brothers duvet. My brother hastily jumped into bed, giving the poor cat a fright. His leg bore the brunt, and since then my brother’s relationship with cats has been a precarious one.

My eldest and youngest brothers often ignore the extended paw of our 3 cats (Merlin, Rolo and Marbles) – shying away from this friendship. In Lets Be Friends – the cats and boys are separate entities, their shadows and shapes replicating one another. Next time a cat extends his paw out to you, perhaps you really could be friends.’ Sophie Mayanne
