It’s often joked I fall in love with each furry face, and will admit to having a serious crush on painting eyes. Though cat’s eyes can be especially mesmerizing, Riley’s pools of green & gold are almost hypnotizing!

This pussycat survived living on the streets, being rescued, then adopted. A hobo no longer, this boy loves to watch the outside world while safely cuddling with his adoring family. Isn't that a purrfect ending to this story? (sorry, couldn't resist)  Facebook Studio: Shelly Burden-Portrait Artist
