Improbable Pair (Catbird Seat)


Improbable Pair Charlie Harper Original artist


This image, created for the nonprofit organization Big Brothers Big Sisters, features the unlikely friendship between a cat and basset hound.

“Cats and dogs, oil and water, pickles and preserves-they just don’t seem to go together. For starters, cats are loners, sufficient unto themselves; dogs are party animals. Cats couldn’t care less when you come home; dogs throw a celebration when you step in the door. But occasionally, when the same hand feeds them, they patch up their differences and hang out together. And as long as the kitten has the upper paw, they don’t appear after all to be, well-intomcatible.”
