Colored Pencil on Paper
by Anita Dale Livaditis
This is one of my favorite drawings. If you knew Krystallos you would understand why. Krystallos, or Crystal, was a feral kitten from the local park I fed, treated for cat flu, later spayed, and have now adopted.
She was an older kitten when I met her, and an orphan with no littermates I could find. She looked to every cat at the park as a friend and possible mom and finally decided on Tweeny, a young male. Tweeny was later killed by a car.
Krystallos moves in a slow and thoughtful way, unlike any cat I have seen. And when she is feeling overcome with her slow motion affection, she proceeds into a slow motion love bite that is surprisingly hard and painful, and then, when you whince, she looks up at you with her huge green almond eyes with such slow motion astonishment, that you just want to love all over her, and you forget how much it hurt.
Krystallos won my heart with her mild and unique nature, her affection toward other cats, and her crystalline eyes, (which is where she got her name). She is a most welcome addition to our family and a great muse for me. I have never known an essence like Krystallo's.
