This graphic is a black and white cartoon-style drawing of two tough-looking anthropomorphized cats with their hands in their pockets, looking up enigmatically at the viewer. They are both wearing air-filtering face masks that cover their noses and mouths (these are a kind of mask often used by people with Multiple Chemical Sensitivity). The cat on the left has stripes on their face and is wearing a white hoodie. The cat on the right has a black patch on their right ear and is wearing a black and white jacket.
