Hello friends! Yes, it's been a while - I've taken some time off recently to go visit my home country and I've joined an online art-class. Some much needed quality time after some very tough winter months.
We've finally got some gorgeous spring weather, which have allowed me to sit outside to do my artwork - or should I say, try to! As you can imagine, many of my rescue cats loves hanging around me but Jessie (the sad, abandoned and very emaciated cat that appeared in the garden back in October) sticks to me like GLUE. I seriously think she has abandonment issues.
So... of course, how can I resist when she wants to be the center of attention?!! Like any cat owner knows - an affectionate cat doesn't just want to be nearby, oh no, they want to be right smack in the middle of where ones focus is... yes, just in case one were to loose sight of the most important thing!! They are darlings they are!
Well, in spite of the eager helper, I did manage to finish my little art piece. The text reads:
"If you have men who will exclude any of God's creatures from the shelter of compassion and pity, you will have men you will deal likewise with their fellow men." Francis of Assisi
P.S. I was majorly surprised some months back when I took Jessie in for neutering - the vet reported back that when she was shaved and ready for her operation they found that she had already been neutered! Someone once must have cared very much for this girl to have gone to this lenght particularly in this part of the world where not many would care to do a thing like that!
