Cat Nap Original Gouache Painting
This original gouache painting was inspired by our adopted cat, Blue (aka Blueberry because she's small, sweet and getting round!). Blue showed up at our door one day, meowing and hungry. Although we have never had a cat, I had been accustomed to feeding community cats so I had some cat food at home which I offered her. She began to come back day after day, and I would feed her on our deck since we lived in a ground floor apartment. Eventually she just started to stay on our deck, and you would often find her napping between the plants outside. We found out quickly that she was terrified of rain, and would always be eager to try to get inside when it started to rain. I found it a bit odd, her fear of rain and how friendly she was that suddenly I realised she might not be a community cat after all. I took her to the vet to see if she had an owner and perhaps she was just lost, maybe someone was looking for her! She had been microchipped but unfortunately her owners had left her to fend for herself on the streets. We already knew that she had found a home with us, and now she is a happy part of our family!
