Cat cartoon: The marital muse

Here's a cartoon from this week's Private Eye. This one came about when I was trying to think up some gags and, looking for inspiration, I asked my wife to give me a few "themes" that I could work on. I'm not sure she even looked up from her sudoku to say, "Er, I don't know ... sudoku". I said something sarcastic along the lines of, "Great, thanks for the effort." But a cartoon still emerged. Not sure when the cat came into it. I just like doing cat cartoons.
