Love Goya's work! But I must admit I associate Goya with the female figure rather than cats! These cats have severe stage fright!
Oh yes - decidedly so.
Looks like the guests have made an awful mess of the back of your sofa while you were away. Hope things went well.

I took my nephews to the NC Museum of Natural Science today and I have to tell you, these look more like weasels than cats to me. :)
