Today we feature 3 furry friends, who just a few months ago found a wonderful new home and life with Kathy and her family. Being a friend and colleague to Kathy, I have had the pleasure of listening to many cute and funny stories about these three over the past few months. It is very cool how each kitten has it's own unique personality. Here is some interesting facts on the boys:
(From left to right in the painting:)
Tiny Tabby (a.k.a.Ben Nevis) - while this brown tabby is outgoing and curious, he is also very serious about napping. In Kathy's works "when he stops he drops".
Mr. Fluffy - this fluffy grey kitten, who happens to be the brother of Tiny Tabby, is very much a feline Buddha - a kind, gentle, observant soul
Ollie - this orange tabby is a real mama's boy and loves cuddles and snuggles. Similar to Tiny Tabby, he is also serious about napping - with one of his favourite nap places being the sink (he likes it best when there is water dripping on him!)
These little guys were adopted from an organization called Furry Friends in Barrie Ontario. Kathy spoke so highly of this organization, emphasizing the fact they go the extra mile to fit the right cat with the right family. Here is an excerpt from their website:
"The Furry Friends Animal Shelter is a non-profit, no-kill organization dedicated to providing shelter and love to abandoned, lost or rescued animals in the Barrie community. We provide care to almost 1,000 animals each year - mostly cats and kittens, though we also care for abandoned dogs. We do not euthanize healthy animals for any reason" ~ taken from Furry Friends website
I believe art is meant to be shared. I am a Canadian landscape painter that works primary in oils & acrylics. I create works both en plein air & in the studio.
