Time spent with cats is never wasted……

Last Friday, I featured Jack Russells….today cats.

I am an animal lover, but have to admit that there is nothing quite like the love of a cat.    The following cats have all played a part in my life…….

Christeve the Cat who came to me during a violent storm in the Magical Town of Crickadoon on Christmas Eve – 1996.

I met this little calico cat when painting in Conca dei Marini on the Amalfi Coast.    She visited me every day…..

    Gorgeous. I love them all (as you know I have Christeve’s story) but I’d love to see the calico Italian cat oil live. Its colours look amazing!

    You know how much I love your painting… it fills my heart with joy… no less than any natural beauty. And you know how I love cats. So you can imagine, you really made my day, my dear Janet. xxx

    Janet this is so amazingly beautiful. It brought tears to my eyes. Although i admit to being weepy where cats are concerned lately. Your work with water colors surpasses any i have ever seen, no matter what subject you choose — but i’ve never seen better with animals. You captured the “catitude” perfectly. Mega-hugs my friend. 🐱 (By the way, i shared this EveryWhere.)
