On The Drawing Board - Double Trouble


This drawing is very special to me as it is of my two rescue cats who unfortunately had a very bad start in life. 

At the time we were living in the Philippines where animal welfare is sadly not in a very good state. My husband was out jogging and heard cries coming from a storm drain, he reached down and fished out a knotted carrier bag containing newly born kittens - literally eyes shut only a few days old. They were soaking wet and freezing cold, I really didn't think they would make it. They proved me wrong though, they were real fighters, it meant bottle feeding every few hours but they got stronger and stronger. 



They went on to travel round the world with us as we moved jobs, they have very full passports! They are now 14 years old and have just flown back with us to the UK for their official retirement. They aren't too impressed by the cold but am sure they will get used to it, summer is on its way.

  1. Such lucky cats to find people willing and able to give them a lifetime home! The drawing is good, as well. I am not quite ready to show my drawings of cats to the internet just yet.

  7. Beautiful drawing! I think that when we paint, draw or photograph those we love, then those efforts are a notch above our other works.
