Kanji question (I think)

What do these mean?

Ironically, I probably made this, albeit over 15 years ago, so I don't remember what it means.

I think the left one means "cat" and the right one means "both."

Thanks; in retrospect, it makes sense that i'd use "cat" seeing as i love cats.

Agreed about 'cat', but I think the one on the right means brush-strokes or picture.

I only speak Chinese (you tagged both?) in Chinese the left is mao1 (cat) and the right is hua4, (drawing/picture).

猫 = cat (JP: neko, CH: māo)
画 = picture (JP: e, CH: huà)

So the OP calligraphed cat pictures over 15 years ago. Tres avantgarde :-p
