Tribute to a loving cat / by Karen Matheis

It is a sad day in the studio.  My constant cat companion, Bally the Cat,  was recently diagnosed with an aggressive form of cancer.  The cancer spread very quickly to her organs. As the pain from large tumors increased, we made the decision to put her to sleep.

Ball was a sweet and lazy cat.  She loved to nap and be petted. Her devotion to helping me by being by my side when I painted was always valuable and comforting. 

Here is a tribute to my loving cat who will join all other loved cats in kitty heaven.
