Drawing of cat Okey by BZTAT
"Okey" Drawing by BZTAT

I have concluded my series of feral cat drawings of a colony of cats with which I am intervening. Although there are still a couple of cats to be trapped and neutered, I have drawn all of them, and I think it is time to bring the series to a close. All of the cats are doing well and now have  greater potential for longer lives. And the overpopulation worries are over.

Thanks for following the series, and thanks for caring about the real cats that inspired the drawings.

Today, I drew a picture of my cat Okey, the little cat who changed my life. Without her, I would have never thought of intervening with feral cats.

You see, Okey was a stray cat, dumped on the streets of downtown Canton, my home. I rescued her in October of last year, and my life has been changed ever since.

The movement that she inspired has motivated others around the world to take the welfare of cats and other animals more seriously, and for that I am very grateful. She also has become my very dear, sweet companion.

Like the other drawings, I am placing this one up for auction. Here are the details:
