Rialto Bridge sketch 3

Legend has it that the colonies of cats that roam the streets and canals of Venice are the descendants of ships cats that sailed the seas in the Venetian navy. For myself I like to dream that they were pirate cats who took their turns keeping guard and watching for marauding brigands. Now they stroll along the canal edge watching the chaos on the water considering how much more organised things would be if they were in charge.
