Bambastarde by Culpeo-Fox Bambastarde by Culpeo-Fox
A personality who revealed herself in a most recent dream of mine.

I dreamed of a band of street cats, being a stranger among them (although i don't know whether i was a cat as well or something else). I remember that i needed some help or answers or whatever it was - and these cats told me: "Go to Bluebottle, she might help."
And then, they pushed me to an outsider cat who just looked worn out. Absolutely pitch-black, ruffled fur and so scrawny that her anatomy looked unatural (like a greyhound or something).
What i remember best was her fur which got unnaturally iridescent in sunlight - like....well. A blue bottle fly. It looked unreal, and it was the only thing that gave her some kind of illusionary beauty.

"Are you Bluebottle?" i asked and everything i got back was a terrible hissing sound, followed by words like these: "Riffraff, that is how they keep calling me! They shall all suffer in pain. Bambastarde, that is my real name! Piss off, you awkwardness!"

I can't get this cat out of my head now. You know, one of those dreams with a special vividness.
And i don't know who she really is. Perhaps some of the creatures that Xipe will have to deal with in time.

I know such dreams ... 
Often my dreams become true but i never know in which way
comparing the situation with my dream often makes me smile,
cause of the reason that there are the same situations
You have such a range of style. I really love this cat and the little story that goes with it. 
...are you red cat?
Wow. This is just amazing! Great job!
Beautiful image
this reminds me of a book i read when i was like, 9. It was pretty interesting though all I remember is that it was about a weak-ish house cat who went outside his house to the streets where all the street cats lived/fought for territory and he saved... someone. It had illustrations throughout the book in the middle of paragraphs sometimes too. I cant remember the title but your picture reminded me of it.
