Artist's Description

I grew up on a farm where we had beef cattle. That’s the kind of pet I was used to. So, when I was given a cat to love and care for, I was told by a friend that the worst part is when you have to put them down. I could certainly understand that, because I’ve always hated hurting someone’s feelings, and put-downs are definitely hurtful. Still, I thought she was being rather mellow-dramatic about it, like, overreacting!!? It’s not like they understand English; a person could speak Dutch or some other bizarre language to a cat, and they wouldn’t really understand. However, there has been times when I’ve said, “Come on in, stupid,” knowing he doesn’t understand. The fact that he’s now into therapy twice a week these days, is probably due to being pushed around by his siblings. He seems to be down a lot, even when I’m really nice, like “Come ‘ere Bonehead, I don’t dislike you as much as I make it sound, ya know.” But, whatever… some people pay a veterinarian to put their pets down, but I think I do okay on my own :) I always thought the vet was just for putting them to sleep when they got too old.
