I love my little girl

For those that know me, that needs no explanation. But, here in blog land…I have a 22# part Maine coon cat who is my baby. And, since she is pushing 13 years old, she has me worried. I think I found the problem, but she is visiting her box quite frequently, and leaving little “trace”, or “scat”, as we call it in the wild. She seems to have a sore near her anus, and it is possible that it burns, when she “goes”. I hope that is all it is, and she let me clean that area up.

Since then, only one trip, and she now is sleeping peacefully.

I was supposed to do all sorts of art/business-related stuff like go to a reception at the Gatehouse Gallery and meet Amy mid-way (there), so she could get her work back. I am opting to stay home and monitor Prudence, and in the meantime, do art and related stuff.

I decided a couple of weeks ago, that since I am revisiting earlier painting ideas with success, that I should re-explore printmaking. I soaked some paper and started 4 monotypes. I found 2 tubes of ink that are good that have to be at least 20 years old.

She is off to the box again-and I really hope it isn’t her kidneys!

Maybe good art this week-end. But, I will be home.

  1. I hope your kitty’s okay. My mom has a Maine Coon of similar size and age named Ernie. He’d fluffy and orange and meows like a one pound kitten. They are great cats.
