Kitschy Cats

Months ago, when Sophie was still a skittish stray, I asked a local artist to paint Sadie and Sally. The painting was to be based on numerous photographs of them, and my description of their personalities. After she had begun the piece, Sophie, at long last, came in from the cold and became a permanent member of the family. The artist modified the painting accordingly. Last night, after months of anticipation, I received a photograph of the completed masterpiece.

  1. OK. RC is totally jealous. She has instructed staff to convey her praise for the artist who was able to portray true glory and spirits of the Resident Cats of your realm.


    • RC could instruct that you commission her portait with the same artist. She did a terrific job capturing their characters. Sadie, of course, is Queen. Sally is the little priss-pot. And then there’s the interloper, Sophie, mulling whether she should pounce or scamper away. She’s doing at lot less scampering of late.
