Ever wondered what your cat does when you’re not around? Author Caroline Paul was gripped by the question after her anxious and timid cat Tibby disappeared for several weeks, only to return fat, happy and confident. So Paul and her partner, illustrator Wendy MacNaughton, took the logical next step: they strapped a GPS and camera on Tibby to sniff out his secret second life. Paul and MacNaughton join Forum to discuss their intrepid investigation, the elusive lives of cats and their book, “Lost Cat: A True Story of Love, Desperation and GPS Technology.”



KQED Arts visited Wendy MacNaughton's studio to learn more about her approach to illustrated journalism. She also chanelled Bob Ross, demonstrating how to draw a coffee cup and a wineglass.
