Illustration Friday: Double (Cats)

Illustration Friday: Double (Cats)
I was inspired by the two grey cats from the neighbour's in Son, which loved to come around and pee on our house to mark their territory. In my imagination, they became black and white. Then I thought of a Chinese quote from childhood, by the famous Deng Xiaoping of China. 

"It doesn't matter if it's a black cat or a white cat, if it can catch a rat, then it's a good cat." ~ Deng Xiaoping

I like the quote a lot, as it denies racism. Points to one's worth as defined by one's ability, not by looks or race. That's my interpretation anyhow.
