GOOD KITTY BAD KITTY by artist Janet Olenik
Acrylic on birch board, 4" x 4"
KITTY, along with FOX, are two of the characters in the original story. They are con-men, who lead Pinocchio astray and unsuccessfully attempt to murder him. The pair pretend to sport disabilities; the Fox lameness and the Cat blindness. The Fox is the more intelligent of the two, with the Cat usually repeating the Fox's words. At one point Pinocchio maims the cat by biting off his paw.
