The Cats conquering my Space

Cats are very independent pets. They need their humans as can openers, but what else?
The tricolored cat in the foreground, a so-called lucky cat, dominates the room. Her jump is purposeful, her body tense and yet soft and flexible. Is she chasing the patterned blanket with the animals on it?
The golden or orange cat seems to be hiding behind the heavy gray-black curtain but it is certainly focused on what it could be hunting outside the window.
The painting style is inspired by Expressionism and Surrealism, e.g. Max Ernst and others.
