Cat owners rejoice! Here is a fine, fat, feline for you. His owners said I flattered him in this portrait by making him look quite not so chubby as he actually is. But I think it is because of this pose. Chewy is one of those lazy bones cats. He lolls around, is not too fond of people, and only shows up to eat. He will probably live to be 100 since he is very adept at staying out of harms way.
Working note: the flash gave me a bit too much shadow, too, but that turned out to be good contrast to him. It looks even more harsh here than it is in the painting.
