He is magnificent Michelle!

What wonderful family members cats make. We were going to wait until after the holidays to bring a new family member home after losing Donovan last week. I just cant make it that long without a feline in the house, so when I get back from Seattle for Thanksgiving I am going out to look for a new lap warmer! Thanks for sharing such wonderful images of yours.

Nikki McDonald level-classic November 17, 2008

Beautifully done, Shell -- the textures of the cushions really work well with his expression. Great detail in his face, too. Good luck on your favorite. #6767726

Michelle L. Frick November 17, 2008

Thank you Leslie, Donna & Nikki! Butterscotch is a she - apparently only 5% of orange tabbies are females - so, she's a pretty rare little beauty! #6767785

Leslie J. Morris level-deluxe November 17, 2008

How cool! I have a friend who has two female orange tabbies...what a rare duo they are. Leslie #6767857

Michelle L. Frick November 17, 2008

She should breed them! Of course, the vet told me this after she was fixed. She's my little sweetheart - scared of her own shadow, but such a pretty girl!
