Footnotes and Queries: 3. Feline Fine

This Notes and Queries query asked why cats have such a wide range of markings. So I took this as an opportunity to play around with pattern, something I don’t do too much. I feel like this one could work well as a wrapping paper pattern or something similar, a choose your own cat-tern wrapping paper of some sort! It’d be fun to see some cats walking around looking like fancy wallpaper, maybe it’ll be the new cat fashion someday.
