This little guy which I have chosen for sketch 7 in my Sketchbook Project 2012 really stole my heart away. He strayed onto the farm…tiny skinny and very afraid. I think that someone dropped him in the middle of nowhere in hopes that a farm was the place to be. It took some time and effort for me to befriend him and convince my folks that he just had to stay. Like so many of the cats that lived on the farm he did not live more than 2 years. I had moved into the city to my first job already when I learned that he was gone. So sad to lose him but so glad to have known him anyway.
