Black Cat
pastel painting

My cat, Echo, is the sweetest cat you could imagine. When we first got him, I was afraid of cats based on past experiences...a beautiful cat that would purr and rub around my legs and then bite /claw me! But, after moving onto an acreage, we felt we needed a mouser, so we got a tiny black kitten that had been saved from drowning by the farmer who had too many kittens...
Echo soon won my heart, and he has been the best cat ever over the last 15 years. I decided to do this "cat portrait" now, while he is still around...he is getting old. *sigh*

He looks so sweet. And as someone who's had a lot of black cats, I can say he's a beauty.
It's so hard when they get old. :(( I'm so glad you saved him.
