"I'm too old to be chasing mice"

We recently watched "The Rescuers" which I can safely say I haven't seen since I was a kid. Bob Newhart and Eva Gabor were great as Bernard and Ms. Bianca, but another stand out character was Rufus, the old orphanage cat. I decided I'd like to see what he might look like if he was a real cat, and this drawing is what I came up with.



And here's a look at what he looked like in the movie alongside the missing little girl, Penny.



Hope everyone had a good new years eve! Here's hoping the new year is filled with even more sketching than the last. What cartoon animal character would YOU like to see realistified?


"Two little mice? What- what can YOU do?
