Klancy and His Mom!

This beautiful boy is Klancy. He is wearing a Calvin Collar I sent him as a gift after I received a beautiful keepsake from his Mommy.

Klancy's Mom is an artist, and has an Etsy shop called JDI Couture. Klancy and his siblings are friends on Catster. One day I got this message from Klancy's Mom:

I have always wanted to paint Calvin as I thought he was the most beautiful cat. Sadly I waited too long to do it during his lifetime. I know he brought you so much joy and will be with you always. May I send this to you as a gift?

Can you even begin to imagine how I felt when I saw this? Not only did I receive this beautiful portrait, but I also received another gorgeous painting from an on-line Dogster/Etsy artist friend. I'll be sharing it with you tomorrow.
Ted and I were so touched by the thoughtfulness of people we've never met in person. Thank you, Judie, for capturing my precious Calvin!
