Her name was Pixie and she chose to live with us. Originally she lived next door, but after an unfortunate set-to with the dog that also lived there, she left home. Pixie began to come to our front door asking for food, so I fed her. Eventually she came to live with us and spent many hours in Vern’s lap, lowering his blood pressure with her warm, soft fur and purring. Pixie spent most of her time with us up off the floor, and she loved to be on top of the entertainment center and bookcases. I suppose this was because she felt safe from our dogs and from my son’s younger cats. She was Queen of all she surveyed.
Despite her age, she continued to insist on using the outdoors as her litterbox. One night she didn't return when I called her. We found her the next morning. (A wild possum had attacked and killed her on her last trip outside). This was a very emotional painting for me. While I painted, I kept reminding myself of all the warm and pleasant feelings she brought to us. I hope those feelings show in the painting
