High School Girl Cats Special episode : Ed-cat from New York


Cat cartoon collaboration with my best friend's daughter for the past 3 years. She draws the cartoon and I color. She gave me the new cartoon when I was in Japan in March. My husband Ed, who was in her cartoon as Ed-Cat, but never met in person with her, was featured. I was ecstatic and truly jealous!!
