Y is for yellow-eyed cat

Thank you for reading my previous posts about endangered and threatened small wild cats (the letters B, F, I, K, L, M, O, P, and R). Together, with a little knowledge, we are taking the first steps to help them to continue to exist. But this time we’ll talk about a domestic cat.

What can really make a black cat striking are its eyes. In the right light, all you can see are eyes. They might be reflecting light, and then they can actually be spooky. But here’s a cat hugging a person. He has brilliant yellow eyes and hopes to be adopted by that person.
This is a painting I did for a teeshirt contest for Animal Talk Rescue. They catch, neuter and spay hundreds of feral cats every year and then find homes for them. Two of my beloved cats are from their rescue.

If you like this painting, please go to Animal Talk Rescue’s facebook page and vote for it! THANKS

This painting is SOLD!, all proceeds go to Animal Talk Rescue

    Lovely picture. If I didn’t know better I’d think it was a portrait of our cat Inkling.

    This is exceptional. I have always been partial to black cats, and I love how their eyes glow gold, especially in the evenings. Thanks for sharing it!

    Your art is beautiful! I’m always in awe of painters. And you’re right…cats’ eyes really are intense.

    This cat looks just like my son’s cat, Scuba. When I started my blog, I was thinking about Scuba and came up with ‘thecontemplativecat’. My very first blog is about why I viewed him a ‘contemplative’.
