This auction has been reopened. Bids will be accepted until 10pm Sunday, 3/18/12.
Cats are very proud creatures. When they experience distress, it affects their pride. They, nonetheless, let you know that you have not conquered them, even when you have them at a disadventage.
This orange/buff tabby was quite stressed during his trapping and neutering process. He continued to let me know he had not been conquered once he had been released at the conclusion of the process. He will likely hiss at me vociferously every time he sees me.
I will respect it. What a fine creature he is.
This drawing is #9 in my series of feral cat drawings of a colony of cats with which I am intervening. I am placing each drawing up for auction bids. The details are below. If you would like to contribute to the rescue fund for the real-life cat intervention, you may do so with the ChipIn widget in the sidebar. Thank you for your consideration.
You can read more about the feral cat intervention process on my Okey’s Promise: Art for a Cause blog.
By the way, I am a part of a process to encourage the adoption of a public Trap-Neuter-Return program in the City of Canton in which I live. You can read my letter to the editor on the issue, which was published in the Canton Repository, if you would like. My hope is that many more people will recognize the benefits of TNR as a means of public animal control.
