Cat on a Haunted Roof by Mr-Ripley Cat on a Haunted Roof by Mr-Ripley
In my country Thailand, we have been told that dead people will be woken up if black :iconpuccacatplz: jump over their coffin.
There used to be a coffin lying for 5 years in the first floor of the two-story building that I was living inside.
The body in the coffin was the owner of the building who died from a car accident.
I still don't know the reason why his family kept him there too long.
I guess they waited for auspicious time and proper cemetery or something.
The worse thing is that I had to live alone in the building all the time.
Though I love cats, but believe me I had NEVER let any black :iconblack-kittenplz: come near the building until the coffin was removed!

This work is a birthday gift for my dear friend :iconjocelyner: who is so nice and generous.
I wish all good things keep coming around you everyday in your life. :iconkimberely:
By the way, I hope you don't mind if this gift looks quite weird for a birthday gift.
And I didn't intend to scare your cat Coquine.
It's because the rule of the contest want to see black cat in dark atmosphere. =D
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

P.S. The name of this work is a parody of Elizabeth Taylor's classic movie called Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. [link] =D

Isso é incrível, na verdade toda sua galeria é incrível. Sua técnica é demais! É muito bom olhar para sua arte, vemos muita coisa ao modo que vamos olhando calmamente para ela. É muito bom apreciar sua arte. Nessa arte em especial me encantei com o tanto de detalhes, as múmias e o gato e como você brinca com a luz noturna. Os olhos do gato dão todo um contraste na noite, as múmias invadindo o prédio ficaram assustadoras e perfeitas. Os morcegos em voo, deram um toque muito especial a sua imagem. Ela está estupenda! Parabéns, adoro sua técnica, sua arte e tudo o que você faz ! :wow:

Nice composition! I love how the bats encircle the cat.  I've heard the superstition about corpses springing up if cats jump over them.  But I don't think the version I heard had a color requirement for the cat. :-)  The phenomenon has been attributed to static electricity, though I'm not sure if there's scientific evidence for that. ;-)

because I so remember my childhood that naughty, my grandmother had told me about the ancient stories like that .. but had several times visited the deceased, I am secretly looking for a black cat and threw it down the coffin ..
since then, my grandmother so much worried about me, rather than a black cat :D
