I once painted a street cat waiting to be fed by an old woman. The work was later acquired by the Hong Kong Museum of Art in 2001.
After painting that street cat, I moved to a small village in the New Territories and stayed there for one year. During that year, my landlord’s cat gave birth to two litters of kittens. I thus made a lot of sketches of the kittens.
Later, I spent two years in Hong Kong SoHo, where I once kept an abandoned kitten and named it SoHo. The kitten was later adopted by a friend before it had the need to strop its claws as all cats would do. SoHo was then a curious kitten. It would jump onto the keyboard when I was on the computer, or onto the drawing pad when I was working on a sketch. Some of my sketches of SoHo were turned into woodcuts and brush-and-ink paintings, including two self-portraits. — Fong So
再之後，我在港島的SoHo住了兩年，期間收養過一隻小貓，並名之為SoHo。這隻小貓顯然是幼小病弱，被人遺棄在後巷，但後來養得很健康活潑。因為貓稍長就要磨爪，只好在此之前轉送友人。這隻貓很好奇，你用電腦，牠跳到鍵盤上去；你畫速寫，牠爬到畫簿上去，還會伸爪去抓筆。描畫SoHo的速寫，後來有些轉成了版畫和水墨，其中有兩張用來配自畫像。 ── 方蘇
