美国诗人桑德堡 (Carl Sandburg) 在1916年所写的「雾」这首诗中，是如此形容芝加哥港口的雾:「雾来了，以小猫儿的脚步…」(The fog comes on little cat feet…) 当时的桑德堡正在阅读日本的俳句短诗集。1952年台湾当代诗人纪弦则反过来以雾喻猫。他用「…以你雾一般的脚步…」来形容自己宠爱的黑猫。这诗句就如同高桥行雄所描绘的猫儿一般，轻盈、无声、难以捉摸。
The American poet Carl Sandburg described the mist in the Chicago harbor in his 1916 poem "Fog" as: "The fog comes on little cat feet...".At that time Sandburg was reading a book of Japanese haiku short poems. In 1952 Taiwan's contemporary poet Ji Xian in turn metaphored cats as fog. He uses "... in your foglike footsteps ..." to describe his beloved black cat. This verse has echoed the cat depicted by Takahashi, light, silent and elusive.
Yukio Takahashi was born in Iwate Prefecture, northeastern Japan. He has used "Cat" as a theme to creat a lifelike images since 1989 and has been selected to exhibit in the LE SALON in France consecutively over 10 years, and has a renowed reputation of being "the cat painter" in France. In his seventies, Takahashi, still reminds active in the art scene in Japan, has won numerous awards. Through his art works, it is not difficulty to feel that he is not only just a gentleman who loves cats, but also knows well the characters of his cat subjects. As an owner of cats and through lengthy study of the cats, he is depicting a variety of moving demeanour of cats, which is like flower blossoming in a flash! His bluish-colored pencil technique, which portrays fluffy furry cat hair, resembles a cotton candy-like lightness. The drawing "Lady and Black Cat" shows the cat's love towards a person it trusts. "Attentive Playfulness" presents how a gentle and tender pet cat is longing for love, and "Face" and "Momotaro" show the arrogance of cats! Hanging the red collar "O meow" is ready to go, slightly exposed claws to denote a "Waiting for opportunity" . Black cat next to "Amaryllis" is showing extravagance and loneliness at the same time. Unruly is "Peony and Black Cat." However, when you "Look back", please be psychologically prepared that you might become a slave of cats, because "Bao Di" is so cute indeed!
While appreciating these art works, the cat lovers would always exclaim "kawaii" (=cute in Japanese). By presenting the cat series to the audience, Takahashi conveys his perseverance through his works to heal the minds & souls. However, the artist is more concerned with the recurrence(or presentation) of "love and be loved."
