Pussyfoot it may be to millions of fans, but to Chuck Jones
Pussyfoot had no permanent name, “…call [him] Everykitten.”   Jones continues, “All the kitten had was the
ability to love, so drawing him was comparatively simple.  A kitten’s ears are much bigger in relation
to the face than an adult cat’s, and as in all young mammals, his forehead is
very high.  I wanted him to be so darling
that you feel you must pick him up and hug him, which is precisely what I
wanted Marc Anthony to want to do.”
