When Holly told me she wanted to paint pet portraits someday, I thought it was a wonderful idea. I’m so happy she followed through with her “someday” plans! Her portrait of our cat Skeezyx perfectly captures his “cat kiss” expression, his coloring, his sleek fur and fluffy ruff. He IS the softest cat in the world! I love this beautiful painting.
Do you know about “cat kisses?” When a cat feels comfortable around you and likes you, he’ll close his eyes or squint. This is a “cat kiss.” You can return the kiss, or set a cat at ease, by squinting. (Think smiley-squint, not sun-glare squint.) This can really surprise a cat who doesn’t know you, but can be the start of a new friendship!
