Last week the most fabulous coincident happened. We were on a short holiday in a little cottage in the woods. Every so often I worked a bit on my polecat pattern, so I could release the pattern this week. I was just about to start on the tail when I looked outside and saw the most amazing thing, an actual polecat running passed the window, followed by a cat! Full of utter joy, I shouted to my boyfriend, who was taking a bath, there’s a polecat outside!!!
What a coincidence. A real polecat, while working on the pattern of one. They are not the kind of animal you see very often, especially in daylight, so what a pleasure indeed. I quickly made a drawing of the short and special moment. And yes, the rabbit was sitting there too, not at all bothered by that strange event. I do wonder what that cat was doing there. It isn’t a very common place for a house cat to hang out, disturbing all the wildlife. Luckily, the Polecat did got away safely.

Beautiful drawing, and an awesome story to match! I’ve never heard of a polecat before, so I’ll have to check it out 🙂 Thanks for sharing!
Hi and thanks! I think you know the polecat as a ferret. Polecats are their wild ancestors, so they are basically the same animal.
Have a lovely day :).
Thanks for the info! & that’s awesome! Ferrets/polecats are adorable 🙂
Neat story, Sonja – and lovely drawing!
