In 2014 I had to put my little dog down, then a month later my dear husband passed away. It's been very lonely and I've been thinking of getting a dog. The more I though about it thou it didn't seem that I could care for a dog any more. At Christmas I kept my nephew's present a kitten for my sister for 2 nights. That was a bit of an eye opener. I've always had a dog, but hadn't had a cat since I was 14ish. Every time I went to Angel's I play with her 2 cats and decided that I might do well with a cat.
Last week I went to the pet store and brought Olivia home.
When I walked into the room of cats she was the friendliest with me.
I kind of let her pick me out. So she was a rescue and has been in the little room all her life I guess. So needless to say being put in a tiny box then into a car, and then into the master bathroom kind of freaked her out.
So she didn't get out of her little crate the first day.
My sister and her son came over and Angel just took her out of the
crate and Ian started petting her, till she fell asleep on the bath mat.
It will take her a while to adjust I'm sure but she is pretty much staying in the bedroom.
She will come to the door and look into the living room and the first time just decided that was just too much new and went back under the bed. Today she made it all the way into my studio before making a quick trip back to the bedroom.
She is getting braver every day.
I made her a toy which she is ignoring.
I chose this pic of Olivia The Pig because My Olivia woke me
on our first night meowing very loud under the bed.
She is very vocal
My cousin texted me the other day and ask if I would do a
portrait of her cat Milo. I told her I'd never drawn a cat
before and would try and see how it came out.
I did a little study in color pencils and sent it to Kay
and she loved where it was going so I will start on Milo's portrait.
I had issues with the fur but I think I know what to do.
The eyes turned out good.
My first serious animal drawing.

It's still an unknown path with regards
to how things will turn out.
I just call it magic.
