Safe Passage


I had to do some research into swamps to relate to today’s prompt for DrawlloweenSwamp Meet. 

Why are swamps scary? Well, they are wet, muddy, and full of mosquitos. There is rarely a clear path through, and often that path is obscured by overgrown, poky brush. Fog rolls in thickly, further complicating navigation. Predators lurk, and occasionally, corpses float to the surface, to be discovered by the unwary. In folklore, spirits inhabit the spaces between trees and haunt the lonely darkness.

I imagine that a cat would seek the most practical way through a swamp, should passage be necessary. So, I drew this clever traveler.
