The Owl and The Pussycat - a morbid tale by Gareth Morgan?

One of my favourite childhood poems was The Owl and The Pussycat (who incidentally went to sea in a beautiful pea-green boat, for those of you who were unsure of their whereabouts). I decided I would start on a children's series of paintings that were a bit looser and fun than my "historic buildings" works I have been doing lately.

So Gareth Morgan (who has recently said in the media that all cats should be kept indoors, or be eradicated due to their impact on native birds in New Zealand) - so, does the pussycat truly love the owl (because shes a beautiful fowl) or will he attack and kill her the instant the viewer averts their gaze?
