Surprise Package

Several months ago, Lou Belcher sponsored a 30 paintings in 30 days project where she painted 30 different cats.  We were very lucky to be chosen as subjects.  Truffle was featured on Day 26 and Brulee was featured on Day 21.  Mom Paula wanted to purchase these beautiful works of art, but unfortunately, this was the month (September) when she injured her shoulder which required lots of medical treatments, PT, eventual surgery, and then the fall on the ice with new injuries and medical bills.  We just couldn't afford the green papers to buy the portraits.

One day a couple of months ago, the man in the blue shorts delivered a package to our front porch. We had no idea what was in it because we hadn't ordered anything.  To our delight, there were two paintings carefully wrapped inside the box with a note that said it was from a secret friend.  This special gift brought tears to Mom Paula's eyes because they are so special and the person who sent them to us has our eternal gratitude.

This past year really has been rough for Mom Paula and it warms our heart to see her smile.  Thank you from the bottom of our hearts to Lou for the painting the beautiful portraits and to our special friend (whoever you are) for sending the pictures to us.

  21. What a wonderful gift. Mom had a couple of us painted and has the portraits hanging on the wall above the humans' bed. She also had Nylablue painted for her human, Sherri-Ellen. Whoever bought and sent these to you is a saint...it might even have been Lou. She's a terrific person. The job she did with Truffle and Brûlée is purrfection.
