3" by 4"
Oil on Masonite

Sorry folks, it's come down to puppies and kittens.

This here's Spike, my tabby-point Siamese cross. One of her other names is 'devil cat'. She likes to bite, she doesn't like to be petted, but hates to be alone. She likes to sneak up to you and cuddle against you, but the moment you notice-- she's gone.

Spike's not right, never has been, never will be. We think her momma was starved when she was pregnant with Spike's litter. Spike was the only 'white' kitten in the litter, the rest were black as was her momma.

To be truthful, she started out kinda cream colored.

My friend Susan said, "you know she's going to get darker as she ages." And she was right.

Spike has gradually darkened to where she is almost black along her spine and stripes.

I think when she finally turns completely black, she will become one with the darkness.

Which might finally make her happy.
