Artist's Description

SPECIAL FEATURE in The World As We See It (9/12)
FEATURED in For the Love of Cats
FEATURED in Dogs and Cats (4/11)
FEATURED in Cat’s Pajamas (10/11)

This is my 14 year old kitty.
I named him Mischa Baryshnikat after my favorite ballet dancer Mischa Baryshnikov, when he was just a couple of months old.. because he jumped high enough to turn on the wall light switch!
About 6 months ago, Mischa was diagnosed with Lymphoma, and had a tumor removed.
He has been on medication since then.
The survival prognosis was for about 17 months, but my vet says she is treating a cat for the same illness who is living 2 years after surgery…so.. I hope and pray.
It is always so very hard to lose a pet..they are like children. I talk to him, and he looks at me as if he understands.
He also MUST have whatever food I am eating!
He sits there and looks at me, pleading for a tid bit!!
Mischa is the eldest of my 4 “kids” as I call them.
Munchkin is almost 11, Little Boy is 3 and Sophia is 1 year.
All four are either rescued or were lost… ’til they found me!!
