Ralph is a true gentleman - he took on a mothering role and gave birth to a thousand babies (yes, males are bringing the young to this world). He is not a kind father, though. Little seahorses are immediately left to face the dangers of the sea on their own.

Fun fact: Pandas are very solitary animals. They avoid directly contacting each other if not necessary. This reminds me of a simple quiz that was published as a part of an animal sticker album. I took it with my brother and my result was - the panda! Now I see that there actually is some resemblance between mine and panda's nature. :)

Today's drawing is dedicated to a sweet kitten named Lavender. I miss her so much!
A stray cat from the neighborhood brought up four kittens in my in-laws' barn. They are very timid and I've been trying to break the ice with them, spending a lot of time quietly observing their behavior. I took these photos of Lavender just one evening before she was hit by a car. That same evening, she was the first (and so far the only one) of the kittens that approached and played with me. I even heard her purring for the first time. I was so happy to finally bond with her!
