In Memory of Smokie

5" X 7" pen and ink

"Smokie was a lovable cat with so much personality. Only about six. Too young to die. She would hear my boyfriend coming down the road and start making cooing noises. She'd jump up on the table until she saw him get out of the car and then jump down, run to meet him, hiding behind the door, while pretending she was there all the time. She'd always be on his lap or sitting by him as he worked on his laptop. My boyfriend is a cat lover (He has four of his own), but he was in love with Smokie. She died unexpectedly and we both are devastated."


It's stories like this about beloved pets that make what I do seem so worth while.
