I think the Bombay was the first of my pun-tastic cat-tastic illustration ideas.

I’d been stuck for ideas for another book and was musing over doing a non-fiction cat themed book. Whilst I came up with lots of alliterative cartoon pages, a few cats lent themselves to one word jokes.

The Bombay was originally in WW2 pilot gear in a literal bomb bay, but I decided on a simpler design in the end as I didn’t want cat’s in human clothes or roles.
