This was our cat Cake.
Was one of a kind.
A family member.
Highly strung.
My muse.

now I've upset myself,
so I'll wish you all a cheerier weekend....

ps. I painted this a good few years ago
and although we lost cake 5 years ago it still chokes me up!

Oh Clare, you've made me shed a tear.
For you, Cake and our Alf.
That's a beautiful painting of Cake.
Take care

p.s could you advise me how exactly I get the award you so kindly gave me on my blog. I'm a bit dense I'm afraid!

Beautiful painting. I feel the same about the dogs and cats that I've lost, it's very hard.
Have a great weekend.

Oh my goodness, she was beautiful! Did you paint the picture of her? I love the use of colour and she looks so serene.

what a gorgeous cat and beautifully painted. I still get upset to think of animals I have lost many years ago.

That painting is beautiful!! What a lovely cat she was. Some people don't realise, but pets are part of the family, and you miss them the same! At least you know that she had a lovely life with you.
