Pencil sketch on drawing paper with fine tooth

Size: 9″ × 12″

Cal was a beautiful Maine Coon who just walked up to our back door one day. Hungry, with fur matted, and obviously lost, or possibly put out by someone, he desperately wanted to come in and stay. We advertised a lost kitten for the allotted amount of time, but heard from no one……so Cal became ours. Adorable and unusually sweet-natured, he was starving for love…..and got it in aces. We lost him to a rare liver disease, after four short years…….but for the time he was with us, he lived a pampered life……. and is missed much.

    This reminds me soooo much of my late cat called Socks – He was a Maine Coon and had grey stripes on his back, white curls on his tummy and lovely white socks that he always kept looking brilliant white even till the day he died … Gorgeous drawing! … :)

  • Thank you for that Ness. We lost our Calvin several years ago……he just showed up at our back door one day as a kitten like he had been ours all along.

    Kate – this is a wonderful portrait! And that Maine Coon expression! My Maine Coon Biggley gives me that look too! Glad you had him for a while, at least!

  • Oh, marilyn, thank you for commenting. Don’t you just wish they could stay with us forever? Give Biggley a great big hug for me!

    I love Cal’s expression, Kate! You’ve done an exceptional job capturing a sence of kitty mistique in his eyes :-)
