Russ and Brenda's cat Millie recently passed away.  Millie was a source of comfort to them through various health challenges so they both missed him when he died. Yes, Millie was a he. Brenda named him when she thought he was a she and after they found out differently there was no point in changing his name and its not like he was going to get beat up at school. Anyway, I wanted to memorialize Millie on canvas. Memorial paintings seem to be a common gesture for artists--some have done paintings of 9/11 and Iraq war victims.  This is acrylic on canvas and the size is 20" by 20".
