Bestest Kitty

I'm an animal person. 

That whole unconditional love thing.  They are generally so loving and trusting and bring joy to my world.

Tigger was one of those special babies. One of my rescues.  He'd meet me at the door before I left for work and be waiting when I came home.  Okay, that lasted for a little while until he had to come inside where I could keep him safe.  He loved me and no one else.  He was the bestest and I miss him still.

This canvas is my tribute to him.  He had a sweet round face and unlike most cats he loved for me to play with his paws.

A very talented friend and needlepointer, Vicky De Angelis took on the challenge of stitching him.  Wow did she do a beautiful job! I love every stitch of him. 

Can you see the fish in the red area in the foreground? Tigger would have loved them too.

Vicky is a marvelous stitcher. You couldn't have picked anyone to do a better portrait of your beloved Tigger.

Bet he really was the best cat in the world. You are lucky to have had him live with you, Ruth.

Hugs from CH,

Tigger is just beautiful! There are so many kitty canvases that just don't look right. This one is perfect!

I had a special rescue too. Her name was Lucy and I don't think I will ever stop missing her. Thanks for sharing Tigger with us. Yeah, that unconditional love thing will get you every time.

SO beautiful! His face is the most expressive kitty face ever! And the colors are gorgeous.
