This is the first cat portrait I painted way back in 2010 when my youngest daughter went to university in England. She was over there for six months and I looked after Donnie her cat. Thought it would be nice to paint his portrait as a 'welcome home' gift! Donnie is now thirteen years old and still as comical as ever, he loves climbing trees and chasing possums, but playfully as ever.He roams her place like "Top Cat" in the movie!

Cute pet portrait, Angela and a precious gift for your daughter too.I love how comical he is and sounds just like my son's cat, always curious and getting into everything.
