The illustration Cats Need by Lili Chin

I’m delighted to have provided some of the inspiration for this latest poster through my book, Purr: The Science of Making Your Cat Happy

You can browse this and Chin's other illustrations on her website, Doggie Drawings.  

If, like me, you’re a big fan of Lili Chin then you’ll love her book Doggie Language. You can read my interview with Lili Chin about the book here
