My submission for Neil Gaiman’s Calendar of Tales Project. The one I actually sent in has Mr.Cat wearing grey socks because I forgot about them when I was drawing, but I like this version better so I’m posting it here~

Looking at the submissions, it seems like a lot of people took the ducks quite literally, but for some reason while I was reading the April Tale I kept thinking of this little scruffy catboy watching his dad slowly lose his clothes playing cards with the mobster ducks whom, up until then, he’d been able to scam so easily.
