Cat art: No words needed

No words needed
When I came home from the hospital a month or so ago (I had a severe case of Lyme Disease, but that’s another story), my dogs and cats met me at the door. Jasper howled, Tucker bounced and Lilah nearly wagged her wagger off.

I got the home version of a cat scan, as Dawn, Athena, Calvin and Elsa Clair performed a complete inspection, noses a whisker’s breadth away as they made sure it truly was me beneath the new scents.

When I was finally able to lie down on the couch, Athena strode onto my lap and gave me a look that spoke for all the animals. Her intense stare expressed concern and love, and possibly a touch of  “Now don’t do that again.”

With my cell phone, I snapped a photo of her as she sat on my chest. That photo stuck with me, and I decided to artify it for today’s Caturday Art blog hop.

You can read the post about my Lyme Disease thrill ride if you so desire, as well as the post about my homecoming, which contains the original photo of Athena.

What do your pets tell you without speaking?

Today we’re participating in Athena and Marie’s Caturday Art blog hop. Check it out!

    That is so stunning. Looks exactly like an oil painting, and Athena looks exactly like Fiona with her pupils dilated like that. Mom says she feels like she could reach out and touch the real Athena. Have a great weekend. XO, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  2. Stunning!

    My Athena looks at me like that a lot too. She is the most affectionate cat. We communicate telepathically.

    Looks great! Still can’t believe how sick you were, scary!

  5. It’s gorgeous! We hadn’t heard about your Lyme Disease. We’re sooo very sorry. And we know your furry family is keeping a very close eye on you too!

    • Aw, thanks. Yes, my fur family takes very good care of me. Did you know that having a cat sleep on your chest is a cure for Lyme Disease? I didn’t, but Athena assures me it is.

    She’s a gorgeous girl, and was obviously quite worried about you. I have a friend with Lyme. It is rough.

    Thanks for stopping by! Wow, this does look like a gorgeous oil painting, what a great art photo! And what a loving, concerned look on Athena’s face. (So sorry to hear about the lyme disease, purrs and good thoughts to you for your health and feeling better.)
