I wish I could take full credit for this concept, but all I can truly claim is the end result that came from the original inspiration. When I started thinking about today’s prompt, SLING, I googled a few things to get some ideas, slingshot was one of them. Through browsing, I actually found a piece of clipart featuring a cat in a slingshot and my brain gears started turning.
What if the cat was slingshotting himself to the moon in the dead of night? What if that cat was my tubby little orange tabby all excited about going to space, which his mom talks about all the time, so it must be amazing and he wants to go there so bad he can taste it. She would be super proud, he just knows it.
So, he ate his protein pills, slapped on his helmet, fixed up the slingshot, and prepped for blastoff to the moon, probably while listening to David Bowie!
I am so happy with how this turned out, most especially because it looks so much like my favorite Finn.
