Artist

This is Artist. Artist is a couple of years old. I used to do cat rescue which involved trapping and taming feral cats. Most cats or kittens I could do within weeks. Artist was one of those but she took 9 weeks to tame!! I would cry out of frustration but finally one day she reached out her paw and touched my pinkie. Then I cried too. Although she won't let anyone else come near her, she is the most loving cat to me. She's so playful and we have games we play... for instance when I'm brushing my teeth in the bathroom, she jumps in the tub and we play through the shower curtain. I reach my hand through the curtain and she'll attack. She was named Artist because no matter how many toys I bought her, she only wanted to play with my paintbrushes. One morning I found 9 of them on the steps! Artist is so dear to my heart. She's the biggest love. -Kathy W.
